    I've upgraded my contract and will be expecting the SGS3 next week. I originally wanted the iPhone 4s but the problem was they just wouldn't negotiate contract deals, might have been something to do with apple stopping them not sure. So I opted for the SGS3, although the SGS3 is the best phone on the market I still want an iPhone 4s mainly because of its simple operating system compared to android. The SGS3 will be locked on orange.

    I was just wondering where I can get the best deal. I wouldn't mind a used/refurbished iPhone 4s as long as I can be confident it will not get blocked and is in good condition. Would it be unreasonable to want to swap it either for a used iPhone 4s and £100/£75 cash or new iPhone 4s and £50 cash.

    Android can be as simple as a static grid of icons like an iPhone. Although it allows you to do much more if you want it to.

    You should be able to sell the S3 brand new on Amazon/Ebay or somewhere, and use the cash to buy an iPhone yourself. Why you would want to I will never understand but that's one option available to you.

    It's actually for my granddad but I just said I because there was no need for the detail, I'm sorting out on behalf of him. I've thought about ebay but don't ebay and paypal take a cut of the profit and for a £500 phone that is quiet a bit and amazon would be similar I assume.

    They take a fixed charge no matter how much the product costs, so selling something more expensive works out better value. Plus it's like 2 pounds.

    "Individuals selling at Marketplace pay a GBP 0.86 per item completion fee, plus a closing fee that is a percentage of the sales price for each item sold.
    11.5% for Electronics & Photo items
    17.25% for other items"

    That's going to be a hell of a lot of money if you're selling a phone.

    Is it Amazon or eBay?

    That's Amazon, so eBay would probably be the better bet.

    If trying to negotiate a good deal is your goal, why the hell are you buying your grandad an top end smartphone in the first place???

    Ridiculous logic aside, and at the risk of sounding controversial, the SG S3 is a better phone for a lower price, and offers the simplicity you're after. If you want a stripped back, simple phone, buying any smartphone is stupid.

    So he could sell the phone to buy an iphone 4/4s and then use the left over money to help pay the rest of the contract.

    That's is personal preference. My granddad uses my sisters iPad which he finds extremely easy to use compared to his current nokia N8.

    Be warned about selling on eBay. It's very easy to be scammed. PayPal always sides with the buyer. They could offer 101 different reasons to PayPal and get their money back, leaving you out of pocket. My cousin is a power seller and has told me of the many scams people pull. Hacking a PayPal account is fairly common-- this means once the actual owner reports fraudulent use, they get all their money back and the hacker is Scot free, you with nothing and zip all you can do about it.

    It also comes with all the leads, manuals and orginal box. It is locked to Tesco o2 and only works on this network. It will have to be unlocked by the network provider if required.

    ^that guy's probably a scammer.


    Try sell it on gumtree and for the record, i've never had trouble selling on ebay-if when you send it to the buyer you use tracking then paypal will definitely side with you should any issues arise.

    IPhone 4s < Galaxy S3

    Even my HTC one x is better than an over rated iPhone.
