    Ok I was browsing and came accorss ishopuk site, they claim to have the 3g iphone IN STOCK and for £99 8GB and £169 for 16GB. Now I have never heard of this shop, has ANYONE ever heard of this shop or bought anything through them. One thing thats is a bit strange is they only accept bank payments :confused: very strange!

    Good reason you haven't heard of them, run before they catch your wallet.

    Can you explain what's so bad about all that?

    The domain was only created on the 15th July, which would be odd for a legit, established business.

    So I e-mailed them, this is the reply.

    We still have the item in stock for despatch and delivery will be within 1-2 working days in the UK upon receipt of payment into our account. (asked if they are actualy in stock).

    We sell both versions of the phone - the contract locked version and also the unlocked sim-free version also. Both items are available at the same price on the store. (I asked if they were locked).

    Best Wishes
    IShop UK


    This sounds even more unbeliveable now, so who wants to try first??

    The address is actually for the Radisson Edwardian Leicester Square, which seemed to be still going strong when I was last in the West End (even if the barman had no idea how to make a dirty martini).

    The guy couldn't even be bothered to give a fake address on Tottenham Court Road, which would have been a bit more believable.

    Payment Methods - Direct Bank Transfer only!

    If you read the small print, you'll notice they only accept Direct Bank Transfer.

    Not only that, but they make a big deal out of it as to how good and secure it is.

    Hardly any mention of debit card or credit card payments being accepted.

    Dodgy and Bull: two words that spring to mind.

    STAY WELL CLEAR

    I'm in the US, and on the Apple site, I see a "Where to Buy" button, so I assume other countries have this as well. Unless you're looking for an unlocked phone, wouldn't it make sense to check the "authorized" sellers here? Just asking...:D

    That would be silly. Obviously everyone knows that Apple, O2 and CPW are the only ones who can sell the iPhone, but that only means you have to scour the internet that much harder to find the other small retailers who can provide cut price, unlocked phones direct from the manufacturer - the post on here repeatedly.

    That depends on your interpretation of the word "is".

    Be afraid....be VERY afraid...

    I just bought from ishopuk...

    I just bought a wii fit, remote & nunchuck from ishopuk. I've paid my money (£69.97) and taken my chance so i'll let you know how it goes.

    It's either got to be a scam or a novice dealer.
