for the thread here

SOMEONE must have one?

RTjoke Sun 17-Nov-13 22:16:21

They resell for approx £150 so it's sadly unlikely that anyone would give one away.

SpencerPercival Sun 17-Nov-13 22:19:07

oh boo

really? still that much?

ImperialBlether Sun 17-Nov-13 22:29:23

I've just checked on Ebay here and they are still really expensive, OP - I'm sorry but I don't think anyone will be giving it away.

minibmw2010 Sun 17-Nov-13 22:30:55

It's still a very current relatively new phone, nice idea but I doubt anyone could/would help

MrsDrRanj Sun 17-Nov-13 22:32:39

This has made me suspicious tbh hmm

nipersvest Sun 17-Nov-13 22:37:23

is there such a thing as an 'old' iphone 4??

haven't even got a smart phone myself so sorry but i think it's a bit naive to start a thread asking for a free one hmm

I must admit I thought 'old' iPhone 4s! That's my current phone and not due for an upgrade for a year!

Sure I have an old HTC Desire down the back of the sofa somewhere though...

hmm My current phone is an iPhone 4. I don't consider it an old phone that I'd be likely to just give away. Far too expensive.

Gossipmonster Sun 17-Nov-13 22:39:52

Suspicious about what?

Why has the OP linked my OP?

nipersvest Sun 17-Nov-13 22:42:09

i think it was meant with good intentions, to help, but on reflection, probably not a good idea.

InTheRedCorner Sun 17-Nov-13 22:42:26

I think the op was trying to do a nice thing but should have asked gossip if she minded.

Iphone4 is still a very current phone.

A poster has already offered on the other thread.

Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Sun 17-Nov-13 22:44:18

I can see what she means. I've had an iPhone 5 for over a year and it's just been upgraded to the 5s and the 5c so a 4 technically is an old model.

dickiedavisthunderthighs Sun 17-Nov-13 22:45:24

This is a bit daft OP, you might be best off reporting this thread for deletion. At no point was the OP from the other thread asking for a free phone so you're misrepresenting her.

Belize Sun 17-Nov-13 22:47:27

Bristles at thought of current lovely phone being regarded as 'old'!

RedPencils Sun 17-Nov-13 22:50:20

I've still got a 3GS. I dream of a 4s!!

Reality Sun 17-Nov-13 23:07:53

Don't we have a section entitled 'grasping scroungers'?

Post there.

Oh, hang on, no we don't.

Even a broken iphone 4 can get you £70, doubt anyone will give it away.

ImperialBlether Sun 17-Nov-13 23:24:58

I've only just had mine! No way would I give it to anyone.

Onesleeptillwembley Sun 17-Nov-13 23:29:56

What a ridiculous OP. if it matters to you so much, you get them one, OP. do you know them?

FortyDoorsToNowhere Sun 17-Nov-13 23:30:31

I am loving my iphone 5c after the iphone went for a swim.

tiktok Sun 17-Nov-13 23:34:18

This is a mean spirited thread. The OP in the other thread was only asking advice on unlocking, and she was not dropping hints, either.

Gobbolinothewitchscat Sun 17-Nov-13 23:43:54

Agree tiktok

spencer - I am sure that you were only trying to do a kind thing but, with the greatest of respect, if you want to play Big Hearted Arthur, you should arrange by way of PM (i.e off board) to either buy a new phone or send the OP the money. It's not really on to essentially start a thread demanding that was the tone that the rest of us stump up

There is an unfortunate very small minority who do seem to see MN as a bank and I think threads like this, whilst very well intentioned, feed that mentality

Joysmum Sun 17-Nov-13 23:49:59

Aw, you were only trying to be nice OP and I like your intentions.
