Talked to my friend today, he said he'd return the iPhone 6 if it only has 1gb of ram on it. I told him, i'd return mine (6 plus) if it turned out to be too big to handle. Any reasons for you guys to return it?

Loose buttons, scratches, one gig of RAM, or an operational fault. Any of those.

Then he's an even bigger idiot than the usual RAM whiner. Returning a phone selling for 2000 bucks on eBay... Bravo there genius.

Lol. I just texted him about that. but on ebay can the buyer get the phone and just complain to paypal about not receiving the product and get the money back?

Yes. eBay and Paypal only care about the buyers nowadays, the seller has no recourse even with tracking and signature confirmation.

I hope most of the people getting $2k for the new iPhone are comfortable losing the 700-1000 they spent on it when they get ripped off by eBay.

Maybe his friend has always think about selling the new iphone 6, and because he already knows that the iphone 6 will have 1GB of memory is saying that he will return it for that reason.

Just because a phone has 1GB shouldn't be a reason to return a phone. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are new phones with no real world usage until Friday. Yes most of the competition have 3GB of RAM and at least 3,000mAh batteries, the iPhone is still a powerful product. The iPhone 5S is last gen but still packs a fight compared to its Windows, Android and Blackberry competition

Only if it's broken/non functional.
Yes, and there is a high probability of this for me. Both my original iphone 4 and iphone 5 had problems connecting to wifi networks. Hoping I don't have to spend time at the Genius Bar again this cycle.

They can try, but if it is sent with tracking and signature required (and it is shown as delivered and signed for) that should be proof that they received it.

Take pictures of it prior to sending in case they try to say it was damaged, or not as described, etc.

Just use common sense to protect yourself (him/herself) and it should be fine.

PayPal generally sides with the buyer but if you (or the seller), can disprove the buyer's claim, you should be all right.

If it malfunctioned. I wouldn't buy a phone without trying it out in-store first. Just makes sense to me to test drive something before I put my money down. So, unless there was a malfunction, I'd have no other reason to return the thing.

Then they say they got a brick and take a picture of one laying in the same box you took pictures of. Without a video of you putting it in the box and walking into the post office or UPS/FedEx store to ship it out I don't believe any proof is good enough for Paypal. I've not sold on eBay in years and most likely never will again.

No.... I'm an adult that actually thinks about purchases so there isn't a regret. It would of been simple to find out if the 6+ is too big... go into a store and pick up any number of 5"+ screened phones.... there was no need to buy one to decide if you liked it.

Yes. eBay and Paypal only care about the buyers nowadays, the seller has no recourse even with tracking and signature confirmation.

See below to learn how to protect yourself.

When selling a high dollar item like an iPhone you CAN protect yourself. Take an un-edited video of the working phone including s# and all info. NEVER taking the camera off the phone show it being boxed and placed into the shipping bin (self serve bin at post). I tell the buyer that I'm making the video for both of our protection. With such a video it's impossible to say I ripped them off so there would be no way for me to lose a dispute. I've had people try and I've always been successful. I used to not tell people that I made the video until/if they put in a dispute..... That just made it harder on me having to prove they were lying so now I tell them so they don't even try.

Then use craigslist, sell it at the mall, whatever... EBay sucks but not every sale there is refunded lol.

He'd be a moron returning the hottest product of the year. Period

It's funny, everyone that I know that has a Samsung s5 or a note 3 or a m8 or g3 doesn't complain at all about the size. But apple adds an 1.5 inches and everyone loses their mind. I guess people here are a bunch of "girly men" that are afraid the phone won't fit into their leggings.

You'll soon learn that there are people that will complain about anything Apple.
