Would you buy a phone online?

    Hey ppl,

    just doing a bit of market research. heres the scenario:

    you have the choice of buying a phone online or at a shop. both phones are brand new, sealed & come with a warranty. The online phone is below RRP while the shop sells at the RRP for outright and under a contract which makes it extremely cheap to get the handset but with a commitment.

    Which one would you choose?

    sim free from shop, pay them for the good quality, i bought a 6610 for £330 from vodafone sim free

    i would buy it from a shop, its more trusting in my opinion.

    I've bought a few on ebay before and have had no probs at all! Safety-wise though, shop is better.

    but if you buy a phone second hand on ebay there may be problems with it.

    from a shop.. you know your getting the real thing then and if anything goes wrong you can take it back..

    true for second hand phones but im talking new phones. But technically its the same as buying from a shop, if the phones come with a company invoice, u can't argue with that! but i suppose thats just the market...

    Hai me too bought a locked Mobile phone from online site eBay.com and unlocked it using the online unlocking site.I got Samsung Galaxy S3 from ebay in AT&T locked condition and unlocked it easily using the unlock code from the site Theunlockspot.com
    Locked phones are costs very low than an unlocked phone.So I would suggest everyone to buy a locked phone and unlock it.
