      Finally arrived, the wifes iPhone15, so decided to sell her iPhone 12. Went online and received a price of £230 for it. It is in very good condition, or so I thought. Packaged it up and sent it away, but received an email saying there was a problem and it was only worth £160.
      So I’ve sent them an email asking for it to be returned, let’s see what happens.

      The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.

          @kazo I don’t know what the IMEI number is so don’t have it. They did send me a video of the inspection so I will have a look at that as there was info on it.

          It does appear to be a bit of a con as the phone is in really good condition. Hopefully, get an email from them today at some point.

            I had a similar experience, the company sent the phone back without question. I placed it in my man drawer where it still resides today. Totally without value. But at least I did not get ripped off.

                Just had a call from them and they increased it £195 and I accepted so the wife will get a Christmas present after all.

                    Brydo, Apple themselves would have px your phone both online and instore, so give them a try next time or ask a family member to put it on Ebay with a buy it now price. It would have sold easily at £220.

                      I always send mine to Music Magpie, when they buy there are only 3 grades, good, poor or damaged. Always got what I was quoted, payment was very quick. I think you can even print a post label in Asda.

                        Apple had quoted me £200 so there was not too much difference there. Just happy to get a “decent” amount that will be paid into my account tonight 🤞

                          I know there’s a drive to keep posts firmly on-topic so mods feel free to delete this post if i’ve strayed too far away.

                          I had a similar experience with webuyanycar a few years ago.

                          The online quote was £1495 for my very good condition but ageing Toyota Aygo.

                          When i showed up to do the deal they reduced their offer to £825

                          I of course walked away.

                          I sold it to a local car dealer a few weeks later for exactly £1150

                          So, if there was still a profit in my Aygo for the car dealer after buying it for £1150 kinda shows how ruthless webuyanycar.com really are.

                            A couple of days ago, my Samsung galaxy S21+5G suddenly stopped working, or erather it black screened. Could not reset it but it would receive calls and my alarm still went off. Of course I could not answer calls or turn alarm off. It’s going to cost me around £185.00 for a new screen! Ouch.

                            My daughter then sent me this link for secondhand fully refubished phones. With warranty.

                                      Your network provider should be  able to block your device as a last resort, from the IMEI mumber.

                                      You may also have some old paperwork with this number on.

                                        I’ll buy your old one Cheap as chips of course 😉

                                        There are a couple of things that could have happened, with several ways to fix it.

                                        1- Force restart

                                        Charge your phone for 5 minutes – press and hold the power button untill it turn off – turn phone on again

                                        2- Boot the phone into recovery mode

                                        Press & hold the volume up button and the power button for 10s – release power button when you see the samsung logo, whilst continuing to hold the power up button, untill the Android recovery screem appears.

                                        3- Boot into safe mode

                                        Press & hold the volume down button and the Power key for 10 seconds – Release the Power button when you see the Samsung logo appears, whils’t youcontinue to hold the volume down key until the lock screen appears. You should then see Safe mode, in the bottom left corner of the screen

                                        5- The power and volume buttoms could have become jammed

                                        Keep pressing on them

                                        6- Motherboard/screen connector loose

                                        Idealy requires access to the motherboard, well within your capability’s . Sometimes tapping the phone on the front and rear works temporarily.

                                        Forgot to add. First try switching completely by holding the power button down for 15s, leaving it an hour and turning back on. How long did the battery hold charge before you had problems?

                                        Its also known with some later versions of Samsungs to magically come back to life adter 5-7 days, so may be worth charging and leaving first.

                                                      hahaha, they’ve asked me to rate them out of five and tell them why I arrived at my choice lol where do I start?

                                                      The money in your bank?

                                                      Discounted price offered initially, late payment, which required chasing….!

                                                      They would be lucky, if they got 2 stars from  me.
