Hey look.. the PIF thread has some activity. And that reminds me. Lets spread the christmas cheer.

I have a sealed vodacom R216 mifi that's been sitting here gathering dust for a long time. Who wants it in fourways/olivedale/randburg area?

I don't believe so.. a lot of pif's have been shipped over the past few months..

Of course, it's totally up to the piffer if they want to enforce rule no 2 or not..

I'd say it's entirely up to the giver. I live in East London - I often hold things for people coming from PE or allow them to send a courier. We don't have many forumites here.
I would suggest #2 should read 'at the giver's discresion'. I've suggested an edit to the OP.
It's usually better if the recipient arranges the courier. I don't think it's fair to ask the sender to arrange the logistics if someone wants it sent to them.

I have a Wireless Camera and receiver up for PIF that I received from here over a year ago.

Not using it anymore as I got IP camera. Bear in mind it's really old so the video quality isn't that great. I had used it just to check who's at my front door. Have the box and everything for it.

I'm in CT, Northern Suburbs. Willing to ship via Aramex if you pay.

No ways...if I'm sending something I don't want the recipient arranging the courier. Becomes a headache. Rather just pay me for the courier and I'll arrange and do it on my own time etc.

Either way, whatever is more convenient for the sender. I've done both before, I prefer the R99 cash though so I can just drop it off at postnet when convenient for me.

Same prefer organising courier/shipping from my side as seller. No need to wait around for couriers that may never come.

Also there dsv Dropbox at some engen garages. That will send it to the persons door for R95.

It's fairly easy, connect the receiver to the TV with RCA cables then fiddle with the antenna and tune the frequency on the receiver until the picture is clear.

The camera can be powered by a 9V battery if you don't want to run cables for the power adaptor.

Cool, I'll take it if it's fine with you.

I also have one extra old 52cm TV to pif if anyone wants it. Samsung.

I'm in stellenbosch. I'll send you a pm tomorrow.
