I bought and IPHONE 4 from someone up here, i have there name and everything on here. They sold me the phone yesterday and everything was fine when i first looked at it. I set it down in my car and drove home, when i got home it was off so i thought it was dead, hooked it up and it really wasn't so i thought maybe it had bad software, so i re-installed the software. Still have the same problem, took it to a store that works on phones and they are saying its probably the mother board. What can I do about this, when i was sold something here that was precieved to be brand new and was actually messed up?
That's why I won't buy things like that used. It's the risk you take and unfortunately a lot of people suck and will lie up and down do get $$. Sorry that happened to you, but you should ALWAYS use the electronics first if you are willing to buy them from someone on here used.
if something is being sold for "to good to be true" or far below the value of what it really is... car, electronics or designer handbags/watches/clothing then the red flags should be going off and stay far far far far far away.
Kinda makes me think of some dude in trench coat leaning against a building and opening it up with jewlery and phones dangling from inside hidden pockets and says to you... "hey.. want a good deal? I will sell it too you , my friend,really cheap because you look like you are a really smart person and knows a deal when they run across one" ((((( like in a bad movie)))))
ps.. not saying that to be mean.. but for 99.00 you can get the iphone4 with a new service conctract from At&t at any local phone dealer ororder a reburished one online though their sites.. or the iphone4s for 199.00
I wouldn't buy an iPhone from CYS. We got ours when we got a new contract (the 4S for $199 each) and then opted for the $99 Apple Care. Peace of mind.
That being said, CYS is a yard sale site. Items are sold as-is and there's really nothing you can do. Always check items out when you buy them (which I know you did at least somewhat) but ultimately, it's a risk you take when buying something off of there. Always walk into a deal knowing that the item may not be as they say it is. Not everyone's honest these days.
I've had a few bad deals from there over the years but overall, my experience has been good. I don't buy things like iPhones, though, lol.
