    Hi folks,

    Due to upgrading to the 5s, I've got a Apple iPhone 5 - 32GB in black available for sale.

    The unit is about a a year old and came from EE. EE have now sent the email saying this unit is unlocked, all the buyer needs to do is sync it with iTunes with any sim other than EE to unlock to all networks.

    Cosmetically, the unit is in good condition considering it's never been kept in anything other than a sock (I like the aesthetics of the unit without bulky cases). There are a few blemishes around the outside of the chassis, but they are very small and barely noticeable unless you scrutinise the unit, pictures will be provided shortly so you can see for yourself.

    The screen is in perfect condition with no marks, the unit works perfectly and is running IOS 7.

    It's fully boxed and comes with, all docs, apple stickers and a charger, lightening cable and headphones. The headphones, charger and cable are unused and still in their original cellophane.

    Please note that I'll be at home until tomorrow mid morning, then in Manchester until Friday on training, so I can either post it tomorrow / next weekend or we can meet in Mancs during the week if you want to collect in person. I will have an hour for lunch and can probably get to a local post office down there if it needs posting.

    I'll upload pics when the new phone has charged up, but for now, I'll attach the pic proving request of the unlock.

    Kind regards

    D

    Price and currency: £300
    Delivery: Delivery cost is Included
    Payment method: Bank transfer, cash on collection.

    Potentially interested subject to photos showing username and all marks, and confirmation of successful unlock.

    Ok folks,

    Pictures now follow. While closely examining the phone I've also found a hairline scratch on the black aluminum at the back. It's not noticeable unless holding the phone at a certain angle, while in certain light and squinting, but I have to mention it for honesty.

    I've got a pic of it but you'll see in other pics that you can't see it.

    Regarding the other marks round the sides, again they are tiny and very hard to photograph due to being so small. They are like small full stops on a screen in a tiny font, and a couple of 1mm long scratches. Again I've done my best.

    First photo of the screen has the protective film on which is why it looks funny.

    Folks,

    I've had the email from EE to say the phone is now unlocked and usable on any network. See original post for details.

    Jay,

    No warranty AFAIK.

    Not tried another sim in it as while I've got the phone with me, I'm now on training in Manchester and my iTunes is up in Teesside and the phone needs to be connected to a iTunes to pick the unlock up.

    Basically EE notify Apple that the phone should be unlocked and Apple then make the change on their own servers. When you plug phone in to iTunes, it goes and gets the phones status from Apple and unlocks it.

    I know it will work as I've done the exact same process when I upgraded to the 5 from the 4s with orange.

    It did take them a lot longer to sort it back then so they must have streamlined the process as it was much quicker getting the all done email this time.

    I can supply a copy of the email as proof of it being done, you'll see the IME on it matches the phone's IME.

    Can't let it go for 250 Sir.

    Apart from the couple of minor marks mentioned in the earlier posts, this is in good condition. The pics don't do it justice as I tried my damnedest to show the marks in the photos which meant close up pics with lots of light reflection.

    No dog / cat / hamster has been near this one :)

    How about we split the difference and say £265, that way by time I buy packaging and post it, I'll clear 250.

    I'm afraid £250 is my max at the mo, may have to settle for a newer 4s, as looks as though 4g coverage not so good in my area.

    Thanks

    Andy,

    It is now unlocked though I've not tried another sim in it simply because I don't have another other than my own.

    I've no reason to doubt EE haven't unlocked it, they've certainly charged the £21.

    I could post it tomorrow. Back in Manchester on CISCO training again, but have the phone with me in case someone purchases and it needs posting.

    I'll obviously only post RMSD fully insured.

    Andy,

    I'm going keep it at £265 for now mate, it's still a fair price for a 32GN model.

    Kind Regards

    No problem, if I had the extra I'd have it.

    Thanks, GLWS.
