    Battered IPhone 8Gb 2G for sale

    Thought I'd start with the bad news!

    Its got about 15 odd dark pixels in 3 groups of 5 about 3rd way down the screen in a line.

    (It used to be a lot a worse - I reckon she took it into the shower room once and water vapour got in - but it gets better and better with each passing week )

    Anyway, its an unlocked original 2G IPhone bought brand new off ebay last May.

    She can get £60 for it as a non-working item on Mazuma but its actually 99.5% fully working

    (Other daughter bought an Ipod touch with the money she got for her N96 and youngest can't be seen now woth last year's model )

    So if anyone's interested - let me know (she needs £99 to pay for upfront payment on a 3G model)

    regards

    They're not really stuck - there was a lot more of them on the left side - then they spread out and thinned - and not there's not many left- it'll be a shame to see them go

    Its a bit like watching a game of life in stop-go animation speed

    In about 2 months, we'll be able to sell it to Mazuma as fully working

    regards

    Or a bit low

    Remember - I'm not a scammer from ebay - you;d be getting a bargain - cost £300 last may!

    And I've told you the bad news - on ebay - you'd only find out after you'd parted with your money

    PS I just want these daughters of mine off my back about their b&^^%y phones

    I've got one in the office with a smashed glass fascia and broken digitiser...if it was mine I'd cry, but I'll stick to my Ipaq 514.

    The statement about ebay isn't quite true though is it.

    If you sold it on ebay as being perfect and the person who bought it received in that condition then you'd be in the wrong surely?

    I personally think somewhere between the £60 you can get for it and the £99 you have asked would be fair.

    I'll stick to my Nokia 5800 anyway, much better than the old iphone

    Just an update - got two other members interested at £99 via PM


    JFI- Mazuma fully working is £120 - non-working is £60 - and since my daughter only needs £99 I think the price is right
