    Mazuma will give you 200 earth pounds:
    You can get 199.98 for it on envirofone.com
    That's why I've said anything over £150 would be seriously considered - I'd rather deal with someone from around here who i can trust rather than a website that i've never used before

    After all its a phone for geeks

    If someone has used one of these sites for a expensive phone - could they let me know how it went (turnaround time etc)?

    regards

    We bought it from phones4u on Orange and they said it was unlocked.

    We've just put my wife's pay-as-you-go O2 sim in it and its made and received calls OK so it unlocked

    All bits and bobs are with it and working and it looks as good as new

    regards

    Ok, I'll have a sort out overnight and make you an offer if that's ok. In the meantime, don't let that stop someone else having it

    Is anyone hear interested in buying it from her - there's nothing wrong with it she just doesn't understand that its really a portable computer pretending to be a phone

    Any bid in excess of £149.99 would be seriously considered (she reckons she can get £200 on ebay but I rather deal with a quality person from around here )

    She now wants an IPhone but would have to get an unlocked one as she needs the phone to run on her present contract with Orange

    And she's not going to get an unlocked one for anything like she can afford

    Prob end up getting a Sony-Erricson like her previous two were

    regards

    OK - so as not to waste anyone's time too much with this.

    Daughter has said she'll take 1st offer of £200 and won't commit to what the lowest she'll take (she reckons she can get £270 on ebay (dreaming )

    I'll stop the bidding at 13:00 tomorrow (Thurs) and we'll see if she sells then!

    Current (only bid so far ) is £150

    regards

    I think what you meant to say was that's a bargin offer there Simon and if I looking for a phone, I'd snap your hand off

    (She wants an IPhone but I doubt an unlocked one (with 16GB of course and 3G ) will come into the same price range for her.

    And anyway, an Iphone is for girls and not proper geeks

    (Unless your a EduMacgeek and have been seduced into believing all things apple are good )

    PS Other daughter has an Iphone and they are good

    But a true geek can't be seen to have something that doesn't require skinning and customising and just works all the time
