    What's wrong with it? You could try the Apple Store, I doubt they will ask you for proof of purchase. If not, report it to eBay.

    Hmm, try restoring it to the latest build of the 2.0 firmware - 5A347. Lots of people are reporting that 2.0 is a bit slow and buggy so it might just be the firmware right now. I take it, it is in mint condition?

    damn, can i ask how much you purchased it for?

    To my understanding, there is no warranty on the phone since you bought it second hand... i hope that you don't do this again.

    I just spoke with Apple and i can make an appointment with them to have a look. They said it is there product so they will repair/ replace and as its a gift they need to make sure that its not been tampered with or unlocked...which is hasnt as im running it on 02!

    :cool: I hope they will exchange it for a new one.

    :)
