    Default Reselling Iphones, illegal or not?

    Hi all.

    Simple question here.

    Is it legal or illegal to resell an apple Iphone in the uk?

    Looking at the dozens of iphones listings on eBay, I'm thinking not. But I am curious.

    Probably immoral to sell one that has been signed up on an 18 month contract with 02.

    When o2 do not get there from the original owner they will ban the subscription phone (block IMEI).

    However if you never signed the phone up on contact and simply fake activated the phone the phone is NOT tied to a contact and you can totally sell it...

    Ahhh. cool. thanks very much.

    lets say someone buys from a reseller, the iphone encounters a problem with said Iphone and would like to get the Iphone replaced/fixed, how exactly would that person get his/her Iphone fixed/replaced? Would they contact their distributer or contact the reseller?

    Well I would first contact the reseller and see if its a software issue and they might be able to fix the problem, but if its hardware then you gotta go and probably mess with Apple or something. My suggestion would be to first contact the reseller and then see what can be done. Im not too sure how it works in the UK but in the US i would just make up some really REALLY good excuse to an apple store and hope they would exchange it on the spot. Im assuming you're still under warranty though lol. There are alot of threads that can help you get pass the Apple "Genius" aka Apple employee by making up these random excuses.

    Thanks, Boweezie.

    I posted on the official apple board, asking the same question but altered it a little so as not to raise suspicion. lol.

    Apparently the sole responsility of the warranty of the Iphone is up to the owner of the Iphone (the person who registers it on o2) and not the person who pays for the Iphone.

    I had this confirmed by 2 people on the apple boards, and they do sound like they know what they are talking about, judging by their post count and manner.

    What do you think?
