aidansmith96: Any thoughts on the new skinny network ? and might try a new 2 degrees sim, as if I take it to the police there is the chance of losing the phone and my money.
It's not your phone. Do the honest thing and take some of the advice you have already been given.
The ONLY thing you should consider doing now is this (TradeMe advice):
If you think that an item listed is stolen then the owner of the goods should contact the Police. The owner of the goods will need to provide the Police with the auction number and any additional information that proves the item belongs to them. Unfortunately we are unable to do anything until we get a request from Police.
If you believe that you have received stolen goods then you should contact the Police immediately.
We work closely with the police and are able to take action at the request of the police.
