    As the title states, I have an Unlocked White Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for sale.

    The phone has been in an Otterbox case its whole life so the body is in decent condition apart from a scrape at the bottom left - just cosmetic though.
    Also I dropped the phone from a few feet without the case which resulted in a blemish in the back case which you see in the photos which made me take all the photos again just incase there was any further damage, doesn't look like it though.

    The water damage indicator has not been activated either which is obviously vital.

    No scratches whatsoever on the screen - screen protectors been installed since new and changed every single month - there is a bubble in the photo but that's just down to my inability to put protectors on properly.

    Asking price - £250 however I know prices of phones fluctuate very easily therefore I am willing to match the lowest used price on Amazon with the same equipment, warranty, condition. Just tell offer me the same amount below and I shall decide.

    Contents includes original box, charger and around 6 months of Samsung UK guarantee. Also beware of imported grey market phones with nil warranties, this goes for all makes/models.

    Please feel free to ask any questions below.

    EDIT: Currently listed elsewhere, I will post Qs customers ask on here:
    1) what is the condition of the battery?
    A: It has been charged daily for just under 18 months now, works excellently and gets me through a full day (9-8pm) - I always try to charge before it reaches 20 percent so that has helped too. If needed, new batteries are cheap for this model from what I've seen so I can chuck one in if you wish.

    2) Just realised that I left the box at uni so for now no box included but will be sent at my expense to the buyer if required.

    Car insurance sorted - made £400 in £620 by gambling.. well Arsenal winning was certain really wasn't it :lol:

    Still got rent left, what I don't get is that usually rent is a monthly thing but for students it's quarterly. Yes it is just one room + bills but a quarter comes to the price of a month for a family home!

    Ah well, its my poor planning after all

    If you read this far the price is now £230 delivered via 24hr courier fully insured etc

    Oh and it has flappy bird APK... apparently it still raises the value of the phone :Blink:

    Mate my overheads run 4 figures monthly, be glad you're a student :Laughing:

    Don't get caught on the gambling, or PayDay loans or other mugs game trying to make ends meet. I did enough of that as a teenager :Whistle:

    Bloody hate those payday people but gambling has been genuinely lucrative - I make sure I at least balance deposits + withdrawals weekly :Smile:

    4 figures can't be that bad if it includes mortgage, renting is the real mugs game :Whistle:

    I wish it did include a mortgage mate, I've been hard on getting my credit rating sorted for the past 2 years in preparation. I have a particular family member currently holding me back from being to access money I'm entitled to, which I'm being too nice about and it's putting me out and costing me, but that's a whole other story in itself.

    Fair enough, hopefully you'll get it all sorted soon enough. Buying now would be silly anyway (at least in London) cos the prices have gone up by very artificial amounts.

    On a side note my dad told me to get a mobile phone contract + credit card + vote in every possible election after I turned 18 purely to boost my credit score after my mum found it hard to get anything as she only voted!

    House prices are always up and down to be quite frank, when it comes to the point of being able to invest I'll dig deeper into what the best call is. I wholeheartedly agree with your Dad, I have a ton of credit cards which I use for the sole purpose of maintaining a good credit history. Unfortunately I also have one default against my name from 4 years ago as a teenager who liked to party with no decent income :Laughing:

    You'd need to land a real asshole of a mortgage advisor to make that default count against you, maybe you can blame it on those card cloning stuff they used to have or something haha

    Truth be told I actually had two defaults again me from back then, I got one removed with a clever blame game, the second I got them to agree to cease collection (£900 for a phone contract I used for one month, had to pay the remaining 23) but they wouldn't remove it from my report. That's another story in itself, I've been going at them for not following the proper procedure for filing a default on a credit report but got a bit lazy with it. Either way, I hope you're right and no mortgage advisor held it against me, or the mass of PayDay loans from those days (all paid off at the least).

    Credit report firms are more interested in making you buy monthly subscriptions to read the same data again and again instead of actually rectifying it.

    I guess paying off payday loans must count as a somewhat positive point, you must've been in a pretty deep hole to use it though. I never even knew they existed till wonga came out.

    Edit = in case you do pay for credit data as many of my relatives have, take a look at noddle cos it's free, it's ridiculous how many betting and insurance firms check you on a daily basis

    Well, they make their money by the subscriptions that businesses take out to read your data in the first place, more so than consumers checking their own reports. For that, subscriptions make little sense. I used CheckMyFile for £6 a month back when they read Experian, Callcredit and Equifax, now as I understand it they only include 2 and the prices are far higher. Either way, it's not something you need to check each and every month.

    Deep in a hole is an understatement, got lumbered with a £500pm tenancy, a puppy and a fledgling company that wasn't yet generating a profit in a town I knew few people in. So I partied, went for the girls and had lots of fun without a care. Went deep into rent arrears at the time, got served court papers, fought the guy in court representing myself (and my ex-housemate who had moved away for a job) without any legal aid. Had arrears of around £2500 between the two of us, my part was slightly less for reasons I cannot remember.

    I played the case hard by not submitting my defence statement before the court date so everyone was completely unprepared for any flipside to the case. Destroyed my landlord's lawyer, he was completely unprepared, to the point he was shaking and sweating buckets in the court room, had the arrears halved, and also got a repayment rate of just £3 a week put in. He was so embarrassed that he never returned my calls to start collecting payment. A lot more to that story of course, the landlord was also hugely neglectful and a complete cheap skate and I used that to my advantage.

    Probably still took me a year after that to start to learn my lesson with money and start building my credit history properly. By the court date I'd already moved away, secured a modern flat for £275 a month which I stayed in for a year and got the business properly going before moving up to Liverpool.

    That's bloody brilliant haha. I know that you would've been stressed and all that but that's a solid win in all aspects at the end of the day.

    It was, though not the most graceful of scenarios. It was the tailend of all that which got me starting to get myself in order from my rebellious "teenage" years :Laughing:

    Sorted - let my mum do all her Easter shopping on my credit card and she gave me a cash advance used to pay off rent. Student loan comes in 3 weeks which will cover repayments in time. Now to upgrade the speakers for the summer :Smile:

    Whey, nice one mate. What speakers are you going to go for? I've had my eye on Pioneer A-Series speakers to replace mine.
