    I purchased my iphone from PC World (UK) and i didnt realise that I wouldn't be able to take it back once i'd unsealed it. Someone suggested that I see if Apple will buy it from me?

    Anyone know if this is a possibility? I don't want them to laugh at me if I go and ask!

    They will laugh at you.

    You can only return items to the Apple Store that were bought from the Apple Store.

    They won't laugh (unless the workers are dicks), but no, they won't take it back.

    They will laugh in the back room and still won't take it.

    I think he's asking if they will buy it back at a price lower than retail, like a used phone. Just like they buy your iPhone 3 4 or 5.. I'm willing to bet they'd at least offer ~$400

    If they're immature, sure.

    You're better off placing it on Ebay for sale. You can take it back to the Apple Store and they will buy it back from you as a used phone or you can sell it to your local carrier and apply the credit towards your account balance and/or towards buying a new phone.

    I'm still amazed at people that buy expensive stuff without knowing the stores return policy.

    I doubt they will laugh but no need in taking it back to them as they are not going to buy the phone.
