    Anyone ever used http://applerefurbished.co.uk/?

    They're selling a 16GB iPhone 4 for £385, supposedly with 12 month Apple Warranty.

    Are they legit?

    Where else might I get a 16GB iPhone 4 refurb?

    Two typos in a copied and pasted warranty? I wouldn't trust them. Pretty sure they're not an authorized distributor.

    Well you can pay through paypal which is a good sign.

    What are you worried about? them scamming money or getting a dodgy product?

    Not too sure how they honor the warranty though :confused:

    honestly, paypal means nothing. as some are aware, a lot of money goes missing because of paypal, and its biased opinion towards businesses.

    i personally wouldn't trust anyone who isn't a registered company and doesnt not have their VAT # etc on show, let alone not being able to see them face-to-face.

    searching for the CO & address (which looks residential, not checked) brings up nothing..

    bullet point 2 of their T&C:
    bullet point 8:
    quoting another website (presumable theirs)

    ..and as someone above pointed out, there are spelling errors everywhere on the site, even the T&C which should generally be overlooked by lawyer/insurance.

    their business address and telephone number, should you wish to make sure:

    Save up the extra 125 quid and go to an Apple Store. It's not worth risking it.

    Id buy it from Apples website if they offered that kind of discount, but from a guy called Omar Gashi selling through paypal? Um... No...
