    Question Buy Iphone 5c from Auction site

    Hi All ... Thank you so much for allowing me to post a question to your site. My wee one has decided she WANTS an Iphone 5c for her Xmas!!
    At just under 500 we can't justify paying this for a 12 yr old, regardless if we can afford it or not.

    Ive been looking at the usual auction sites (Specifically Gumtree) and see there are always a plentiful supply of sales. My worry is, if i was to buy a iphone and a week after i bought it, the phone is blocked because the seller declares it lost and claims for insurance .... So they get my money and a new replacement and i'm suddenly left with a useless phone.

    So, the scenario is i'm left with a blocked phone ... would the original carrier who blocked the phone have any sympathy for me?

    Rgards ... Stuart
