So I purchased a iPhone from facebook... got blacklisted after just over a month...
unpaid contract plan I assume.
I'm not super worried, I already purchased another phone so just trying to recoup costs for this one.
But what are my options here?
Does the NZ Blacklist carry onto overseas as well? .. Can I sell it to a friend overseas and they will have no issue?
Disputes Tribunal is another option, only $40
Its strange. the TCF website currently lists it as blacklisted but it still works fine on 2degrees until it roams to vodafone then its dead till I Airplane ON/OFF, So either 2degrees is slow at updating their blacklist or its only blocked on Vodafone.
The person at 2degrees told me that if its blocked due to no payment its only on the original network but I don't believe this to be correct?
This sort of thing happens but its frustrating the networks use the blacklist for this purpose when there is zero way to check this at purchase time. Why cant they add a list to the TCF site that says "This phone is under contract."
