Buying new phone cheaply from Ebay??

Without going in to details, I noticed that some sellers on Ebay have mobiles for sale, unlocked, that appear to be much cheaper than when bought from say CPW.

Does anyone have opinions how genuine and trustworthy the Ebay sellers are?

I can guarantee that ebay is a good online market. They are known to be the most reliable market on the net.

I agree, second link didn't work, also first link did not throw up that on the phone I entered, Nokia 5800Express and others, Nokia is giving free SatNav away, so no need to add it to your contract!

There has been a huge rise in second hand mobile phones recently, you see all the adverts for people like Mazuma and others. Some fo these do end up on ebay as mobile phones are more like a currency now and sold by the tonne!

You can always compare new mobile prices at <a href="click here" title="Compare Mobile Phone Prices">click here;/a> and see if others apart from CPW have a better deal.

I wouldn't anyway. I'd much rather pay a fair price to a reputable discounting trader.

I would not buy from a private individual, it is highly likely it is stolen or still on contract to provider.

I saw a cheap nearly new Nokia Express 5800 for about half price,

I asked the seller if there were any ownership snags to it and received an aggressive, rude reply saying if I wanted it "Just send the money and don't waste my F****** time.

E-bay delisted him, but he could easily open up again under another name.
