    Hello,

    I am selling my iPhone 16gb. it is about 2 months old and like new condition.
    Selling it because a blackberry is more of what i need right now.
    Somebody can use the iphone to its full potential. Having 16gb space on a phone is amazing unfortunately due to my business and job a blackberry will fit right into my lifestyle a little better.

    430 shipped overnight. It is unlocked and jailbroken.

    499.99 + tax from the apple store.

    Comes with everything apple gives you when you buy it at their store.
    Original packaging and documentation etc.

    I'm interested in the phone, but it is only $499.99 + tax from the Apple Store. Were you intending that the selling price for you would be $430 or $330 (assuming you were to keep the same pricing discount)? Thanks.

    the seller is very deceptive:mad: and i am very unhappy with the purchase. the picture taht he provided is not the actual phone. The actual phone comes with scratches and dents. Furthermore, the overnight shipment was delayed and took a total of 5 days to get to me.:mad:

    Hopefully you paid him through paypal because its almost a certainty that when you file a claim the seller always loses. Especially when this time the seller actually was being deceptive...


    Take photos for us!

    Those are very visible dents and deep scratches.

    Not to be an ass, but looking at the first pic, it looked like there were some nicks and such at the top- they should have been disclosed better.


    I'd be perturbed to have waited the extra few days if i was expecting overnight shipping.

    from the first photo, it is probably hard to judge but from the second photo, everyone could clearly see that it is not the same phone.

    I'm going with "definitely not the same phone" on this one. You can tell that they're not the same.

    Those photos could be the actual phone he received, just not recent images. Either way, those nicks/scratches should have been disclosed (as they are not visible in the pictures). If the seller refuses to refund you, I would recommend you file a claim with PayPal.

    ^^^

    That's only for eBay when the item is not as described.

    He can only file a complaint with Paypal, but that's usually for when the goods are not actually delivered. He got the goods.

    Looks like the buyer will just have to spend a few extra $$$ and buy a new back...

    EDIT:

    I found a place that sells them, but Apple has discontinued the Silver and is selling the newer Black backs. I assume they'll also fit the older iPhones. E-mail them to ask.

    Oops - here's the Silver one with no parts:

    Just curious, how was it shipped, and what did the packaging look like? could this have happened in transit?

    i dont think it is shipping. because the phone was sitting inside the apple box very firmly and there was no room for movement.

    thanks for the heads up gkarris. Those are some expensive back case.:(

    Apple OEM at least.

    If you're tech savvy - maybe get the one without parts and see if you can transfer the parts yourself.

    I guess you'll have to get the tool kit too - another $20.

    There goes the money you saved.... :(

    so, is it fair for me to ask the seller to give me a refund of $50 for the new parts and delay in shipping? just want to get a some idea from other forum members

    thanks

    It is fair for you to demand a refund if you so wish.

    Yes, that's the depreciation on the phone since it has those marks on it.

    From welovemacs.com:

    New Silver Back: $40
    iPhone Toolkit: $20
    Shipping: $6
    Total: $66

    Ask for $70...
