    I'm getting a bit worried now. I vaguely remember reading on the 02 recycle site that iPhones must include the charger when shipping, but now I can't find the page. Has anyone else had to include the charger when shipping the iPhone? Problem is i've only got the USB cable and the detachable part of the charger, but not the wall plug.

    You will be fine. It's not that big of a deal to them. I mean you're still recycling anyways. :cool:

    Still, I could have sworn I read that they wanted the charger included. I'm just worried that they'll lower the price paid or something if it's not included. 02, are, after all, jammy sods. :p

    I think chargers only have to be included with iPods and Cameras.

    Edit:
    Only needed for the other things, here's the URL!

    Yeah, lost in the postage instructions page, under "For Phones"

    • For iphones please include the charger

    http://www.o2recycle.co.uk/instructions.asp

    Not sure how it affects your price, give them a call maybe?

    It's alright I've found the charger! Thank god for that :p

    They could have made the info a bit clearer though, perhaps they do it to try and catch people out so they can knock a few quid off the price...very sneaky...

    I get that to, it is very unclear unless you read every page on the site, very sneaky....

    "For certain models like iPhones and other smartphones we test more functions – like software, connectivity and full functionality so you may find that for these devices our grading will sometimes mean we are unable to offer any payment for it. In these instances you can claim your phone back within 3 days, there will be an admin charge of £14.95 for the return of your item(s) speak to customer service for details."

    That bit I don't like, my 3G was fully functional, what can they possibly test to write off 100% of the vaiue?? And if they do, they charge you a mad fee to have it returned!

    Urgh! What a joke! Do you just need the plug, or the USB as well (I've broken all of mine!)?

    They offered me £174.10 for my 3G 8GB, give or take a few quid for scratches etc. The whole charger is needed apparently.

    I would imagine they'd want the USB cable as well, the 3 parts together make up the charger. :(

    As I said, what a complete joke. I'll work something out... Does anyone know how much it'd knock off? Might look at some alternatives: envirophone anyone?

    Damn it! I didn't send my charger as I went by the info on the first link. :mad:

    It would be a hell of a squeeze in the tiny envelope they send you anyways. Will find out what happens tomorrow.......

    Carphone Warehouse seems good, they pay for Recorded Delivery and don't expect the phone to be pristine... and they're pretty competitive, the front page says £234, but in the checkout it's £240 :) might go with them?

    I'm probably going to use www.cashinmyfone.com rather than O2. I've used them several times before and had no problems. They don't deduct money for minor cosmetic problems, and if they do find any damage that means they offer less money, they'll return it for free if you reject their offer.

    They're offering £197.80 for a 16gb 3G or £268.79 for a 32gb 3GS.

    I've already placed an order with them. They'll hold the offer price for 30 days, so I'll make my mind up if I'm going to sell and buy a 4G after WWDC.

    £174?

    I sold my 8GB 3G on eBay a couple of months ago for £300. It was in perfect condition, with all original accessories, manual, stickers and box but that's still a big difference.

    16GB 3GS, only £2 worse than O2, but CPW pay for recorded delivery, so it turns out about the same! I'll be putting an order in with them tomorrow night!
