    Default Buying someone's contract upgrade phone?

    What are the risks involved? Say the seller defaults on payment of contract. Can the phone be blocked and you're stuck with a dud? Also what bout the guarantee?

    I know that in some cases the phone will be blacklisted yes as it remains the property of the SP untill such time that the contract has run its course.
    I am a gay man, and therefore I am always right. Nick will confirm this fact.

    Sounds a bit dodgy, but I'm guessing that you can get a SGS at a very good price?

    Yeah rob, found one R3899, still sealed. But going to pass on it. Rather spending more and buying from a forum member here.
    Thanks for the info Occie.
