Hi all


Have a OnePlus 2 which is cosmetically a solid 9/10 everyday of the week, but known issues with phone are..


*Screen bleed of some type. If you wanted a replacement screen they are dirt cheap from Ali express, between $20-$30 and are pretty easy to replace. This does not effect the usage of the phone.


*Not connecting to mobile network. Maybe a hardware issue with sim card reader or something that is easily fixed with APN settings or flashing a custom ROM, not sure


That is pretty much it, can be used as a wifi only device around the house, no problems with connecting to wifi etc.




Wanting $100 ono, pick up CHCH or can ship tracked overnight with NZ couriers or Courier post

That is not "screen bleed" - it is liquid damage which will explain why it is not connecting to the mobile network.

Right thanks for that. No idea that was the cause.

Due to the nature of the screen (thanks @michaelmurfy ) and cell coverage issue most likely being more substantial then first realised, price reduced to $70 and free shipping nationwide. Phone connects to wifi as stated so really only use is a wifi only device. Phone has been sitting around as it was replaced due to thinking it had screen bleed and a common issue with no cell coverage on this model phone, looks like a conversation needs to be had with the prime suspect (young daughter) and her co conspirator (wife) who most likely helped her cover it up.
