I have bought a Blackberry Curve there; it served me for more than a year and when I upgraded my Blackberry, I gave that one to my mom in law. Until now she's still using and loving it. It's a used phone, of course. But surprisingly I never had any problem. I just don't know how they are with iPhones.

I'm from the Philippines, and the seller is from the US. She will ship it to me and we negotiated the price and the shipping charges. But I figure it will save me lot if she will just ship it to my husband's address there, then have his best bud pick it up from our place there, then take it with him on his visit here. Whether it's just local and international shipment, most of these are shouldered by the client.

You still have to be careful with buying things online because there are a lot scammers out there. Make sure you read the feedback of the seller and see if he is a trustworthy seller. But the best way is to transact the money personally. You can see a lot of stuffs at bargains at ebay and search for it. You can then asked for meet ups to transact the things and money. In that way you can check the item you've bought to be functioning and still has a good quality.

Hi, A meet up would a very nice idea. I hate parting with my money and wait for the item I bought. It should be a fair game, instant payment, instant possession. Sadly that is not the case. The system should arrange for such eventualities but given the present trend of shipping, it is still a kind of waiting game for us online shoppers while our paypal accounts are a few dollars poorer already.

I bought my Samsung Pixon phone last year from Ebay. It was actually a rush purchase and something I did to piss my husband off. Nevertheless, I didn't have any problem with the item, and Im still using it until now. You just have to find a good seller, one that is selling a lot of other items and has got a lot of good reviews from other buyers.

hi jure! is it possible not to purchase into a person who doesn't have any "top seller " on the left part or they have just a 4 to 5 stars on the ebay rate
