Ofcourse, but here is the logic. A brand new Samsumg S3 is better than a non tested/used iphone 8+. My point is Less visit to a repairer's shop saves u a lot of xtra cash and stress too
Ok

Check the price in Nigeria market and i ll give you #10,000 less.

I have  OLX Nigeria on my phone, i just don't want to drag price with you hence why i ask you to check the price and come back.

That's the one i am selling. If you look on top of my laptop, you ll see a brand new Iphone, that's the new one i am using. Nothing is wrong with the IPhone 6 Plus.

You hit the nail on the head..

When people come to me to suggest phones within their budget, I first give them a range of phones their money can buy in the used phones segment of the market especially when their budget can only buy brand new low to midrange phones..

The 35k that you would use to buy Tecno spark phone would also get you a clean UK used flagship device from Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG and even Apple..
And because these UK Used phones are of reputable and durable brands, they tend to offer more value and reliability than the new phones manufactured by Tecno, Infinix and the rest!



I know Tecno, Infinix and Itel marketers and fanboys would come for our head soon, I'm waiting for them!! cheesy
My people perish for lack of knowledge, UK used phones have and hand value.

Those ones on the queue buy their iPhone on pay as you go without getting into any contract.

The minimum contract you can get on IPhone 6 to new ones is 2years contract which few people run away from.

To be precise, in my own case, i am paying about #40,000 on a monthly basis with just 12GB internet data and unlimited local calls(not international).

You pay equivalent of #40,000 to #60,000 on a monthly basis for 2years on any IPhone from 6 Plus, 7plus to iPhone 8. It all depends on your choice of Iphone; the memory capacity and the allocated minutes, unlimited data-internet or limited data.

So those people you see on the queue preferred to buy the IPhone outrightly instead of monthly payments for 2years and buy either sim on pay as you go or Sim only contract.

Also, majority of these people you see on the queue have poor credit history which prevent them from getting anything on credit.

The reason why it's not available in Nigeria is absence of credit file. They go throw your credit history to see if you are credit worthy. If you are not, you are not getting the phone. You ll need to go and buy pay as you go.

Honestly speaking, it only encourage people who are not meant to use such phones to buy it cos it's on credit.
Thanks, I learnt something today. But if one should calculate #40k for 2years, that should be around 960k for the iPhone 8 shocked shocked

Not even if you have to live in the US or the UK and your company provides you an official phone from either of these networks?

Pleasure and excitement that comes from unboxing a new phone? Lol.
Phones arent investments, they are just necessity, depending on what you use them for anyways. Some people just buy big and expensive phones to make them feel "belonged", all they do wit it is chat, make calls and send sms. Wen you have your priorities right and know how to prioritize ur finances, knowing where onr belong isnt hard to come to terms with.
you are promoting this UK phones like its what u are into!


I don't know about you, but not in this life will I buy a used phone! If you wanna enjoy phone, go get a brand new one, if you your money no reach, buy Xiaomi, Tecno or Infinix... Phone no be world cup!

Oh, you are the one getting this all wrong. I am not promoting anything here, just saying if one believe in a brand for the reasons best known to them, they shudnt be crucified for it. The fact that i like buying Uk used fones doesn't mean i cant afford a new one, but i choose to go with wat i want and comfortable with, st the same time not asking you to toll my line. You cant tell me people havent had bad experiences from new products too, i have had my personal experience with them too, so chill biko. This isnt a war, we are all here to learn from other people, no man is a fountain of knowledge/experience.

This is how Europe and America is, the whole system is built on credit.

The difference between Nigeria and this western countries is this, everything you see with Nigerians are outrightly owned by Nigerians(Houses except few mortgages, cars, furnitures, electronics etc) while 80% things you see with Americans and Europeans are bought on credit(80% of their houses are on credit called mortgage, the furnitures, cars, iPhones and other big phones, electronics etc)

The School you attended for free, i mean your school fees that was paid by your parents is like a gold compare to the teenagers here, they paid their Universities fees by themselves on loans. By the time they finish University, 90% of them are in debt of about #20,000,000(Equivalent in naira) which needs to be paid when you begin to work. By the end of your study, you are probably dating another graduate who is equally owning the same shit, by the time you both become husband and wife, you both are owning about #40,000,000. Let me stop here.

So they make their countries look great but trust me, the system is full of shit. That's why you ll see Africans who intend to make money and come back get stuck in the system. That's why those uncles and aunties of yours don't come back home for years.

So it's not all what glitters that is gold. That is why a lot of people get here and feel disappointed.

The reason why Nigerians seem more happier than these people is all written there. They pay for these things i listed up there on a monthly basis including all these following bills water, gas, electricity, tv licence, car insurance, road tax, home insurance, fuel, student loans, sky tv(DSTV), council tax while in Nigeria, you don't pay through your noses and pains to pay all that.

Every month, government takes 20 to 25% of your salary and another one called National insurance, the remaining change is yours in which all the above bills must be paid. That's why they easily commit suicide than average Nigerians

This is the fact.

[quote author=dramaticspeak post=61319285]The only advantage the customer who walks into a shop to get a brand new phone has over the user of a UK used phone is the fact that the brand new phone comes with original charger and earpiece. Getting a UK used phone, you would have to get those separately and most times people end up getting fake which they know and will spoil the phone. It is advisable the users of UK used phones seek to buy “follow come” accessories. They are more expensive but they will last as against the “original” 1k or 1k5 chargers people commonly buy.

Let me make it clear here that there is a difference between Nigerian used and UK used phones. Nigerian used phones as the name implies, refers to the phones used by Nigerians and put up for sale. Several reasons make Nigerians want to sell their phones. They include: The fact that they want to upgrade to a higher version of a particular phone, They are in need of urgent cash, The Phone has hidden faults which is always usually the case, They have used the phone and are tired of it and just want to dispose of it. UK used phones are the phones used by foreigners. It is not only UK citizens but even those used by Americans, Arabians etc are all classified as UK used phones in the Nigerian market. These Phones are usually very clean and look just like new. .They are in perfect working condition as they have been tested .They come locked but are expected to be unlocked by the seller before they are put up for sale. When a phone is locked it means that if I insert my Nigerian sim into the phone no network would be discovered. There are several carriers a phone can be locked to and they include but not limited to: T-mobile, Verizon, AT&T, Tigo etc. Another category of locked phones especially for iphone users is icloud lock. I do not advise people to buy phones that are icloud lock because many a times such a phone is stolen and the cost of unlocking icloud is relatively high. How are these phones unlocked? They can be factory unlocked through the company website or they can be unlocked using a chip. Any phone that is unlocked using a chip it means that without the presence of that chip on your phones sim tray your phone would not recognize your sim network. But it is far cheaper to unlock a phone with a cheap and it helps to reduce the cost of such a phone in the market as it cannot the sold in the same price range as other phones. So far in my 7 years of selling UK used phones I have not had a single complaint on any of my phones.

How come people get scared to buy UK used phones? It is because of the activities of the customer’s ignorance of buying a fake charger that can damage a phones battery and dishonest sellers who either sell Nigerian used phones which has fault as Uk used phones to unsuspecting customers. Sellers who do not unlock their phones in order to save money and sell a phone locked to an unsuspecting customer or they put in chip and still sell at the normal price. Customers who know nothing of the chip might open the sim tray and dispose of the chip. Some sellers even sell stolen Phones and have ended up putting unsuspected customers in trouble.

[OK good thanks you for the enlightenment I never know much about the UK phones I am staying in south east where I will locate you if I am in need to buy it in future? ]
