buyinga 2nd hand phone

Am loking at purcahsing a 2nd hand Galaxy S9,  How do I tell if it was purhased outright or on e contact that if they stop paying will block the phone or does this sort of thing not happen?

Re: buyinga 2nd hand phone

I think they block phones if you ask, because it was stolen by a genuine thief. Once a contract is signed, the singner is the owner of the phone, whether they subsequently pay or not.

 

But in any case, buy from a reputable ebay store.

Re: buyinga 2nd hand phone

Definitely an area to be careful. 

 

I recently delt with this mob on ebay. They sell refurbished. You select condition, colour & memory and get a price. 

 

I used the 14 day change of mind policy and it worked without issue (sent it back and got a refund). 

 

Seems stock dependent so currently just one combo, but presumably changes fairly fast.
