Legit Nokia 8800 finally

I have been scammed twice on ebay for nokia 8800 sirrocco's. I have lost like 1600 bucks. I was helbent on finding a real one on the net. So I searched and searched the internet all day and night. I came across a unlock internet business called mobilecustomsusa.com I ordered one from this company because the price was not sickening low to where it looked like a scam and it wasn't too high to look like I was going to be ripped off. Plus I was guaranteed a refund if I wasn't pleased. Well I got my sirrocco in 3 days and it was real. So I just wanted to tell you thank you Mobile Customs Usa.

If you have been " scammed twice " on e bay then i assume you have lodged an appeal with e bay and pay pal if you used them to pay for the transaction.

Its has become an all too familiar story after purchasing cellfones from these auction sites.

Cheap copies.
Dont turn up.
Used / bad quality handsets.
Locked to networks.
IMEI locked due to fraud investigations.
Work for a while then go IMEI locked.

If you dont relish the though of paying for a sim free version {£500 +in Uk} then I would actually purchase from shops that deal in used handsets.

This way you have some where to go back to if an issue occurs and you get 2-3 months warranty, and of course you can look and try it out before you buy.

Your experiance should be a lesson to anyone who is tempted to buy online.

I hope you enjoy the sirocco you got eventually.
I have the original 8800 and love it...... lol
