Was just thinking. Say i buy a phone off ebay. And the phone previously was someones on contract with insurance. So they sell it to me on ebay then tell the insurers it was stolen. Could the insurers block the phone I had bought so that it wouldn't work even though i had bought it legitimately?

Hmm hard that, dont think the insurers can block the phone, only network operators can block the phone on their network.

Just keep a record of the page you bought it and the address of the guy and you should be fine.

BTW i got a phone going up on ebay sooon. Samsung v200....

I did and regret it 100% it was a nokia 8850, when it arrived it was one with a case that had been replaced with some made in taiwan crap. It fell to bits after 2 weeks, all i managed to get was a 10 refund.

Never again
