new phone

I AM NOT PHONE SAVVY AT ALL Confused

 

IN FACT, I DO NOT HAVE, NOR WANT, A SMART PHONE.

 

MY QUESTION IS, IS THERE SOME SPECIAL REQUIREMENT WHEN BUYING A PHONE ON AMAZON OR EBAY?  LOCKED/NOT LOCKED?  SIM/NO SIM?

 

PLEASE FORGIVE MY IGNORANCE.

Re: new phone

Just make sure the phone is either fully unlocked (usually called "sim free") or an O2 phone and you can then use your sim in it.

Re: new phone

Hi @NOTHAPPY

Firstly I would never buy a phone from Ebay, a lot of people experience problems with them (being sold on for insurance purposes)

If you buy from Amazon, make sure it's from a reputable seller and sold unlocked and sim free.

I have bought many phones from them and never experienced a problem at all

That's great @Anonymous. The 'like new' phones from O2 seem to have good reviews overall.
