Not sure. It doesn't stay on the tesco site when you browse other stuff.

Far too cheap to be legit. I don't trust the au.mn shit either. It's not the official tesco site.

The mother site is nano5sale.

I wouldn't try it.

I clicked the About Us link at the bottom and it says this

our company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Servicecare Support Services Ltd and has been specifically formed in partnership with many leading manufacturers to re-market graded products. Servicecare have many years experience in the refurbishment of electronic products. This has been gained by working in partnership with many catalogue companies, retailers and manufacturers.
At Electrotec we buy major manufacturer returns and refurbish them to graded standard for sale to the public or retailers. The usual reasons for these returns are because they are either; unwanted presents, delivered to the wrong address, packaging damaged, minor cosmetic blemishes, missing accessories or because of minor faults.
These returns are then tested, processed, repackaged and offered for sale. Where a repair is required this is done by one of our qualified electronic engineers, using manufacturer provided parts.
Acting as the returns centre and warranty provision agent has enabled Servicecare to gain the unique skills to ensure the graded products meet exacting standards and are suitable for re-sale. We are an authorised service centre and warranty provider for many leading manufacturers.

All products sold through this website carry a 7 day 'no quibble' returns policy and a 1 year product warranty provided by Servicecare.
Contact details:


Could it be because there aren't 'brand new' and are returns that have been refurbed..

So much online about them being scammers.

Hi

Please do not buy from this site. I work for the real company it mentions on their about us page. Electrotec / ServiceCare. We have never heard of these guys before and they have just copied our about us page from our website.

A quick Whois search shows that the company was registered in China and the location is a Parking garage in NewYork. This screams Scam to us. and likewise we have notified everyone we can that this is not us. If you check our real website I have just uploaded a banner stating the above.

Please Don't Buy from this site

All the best

Can't you just sign a conract and get a discounted phone in England? I live in Canada and although the contract is supposed to be 3 years I pretty much end up renewing every 2 and they just let me out of the old contract. I just got an Iphone 4S for $140 on a contract or £87.

This ^

I was in the apple store with a friend some time back and talked to some of the guys there and got upgraded to a iPhone 4 for 99$ :O

Very sweet deal IMO

I already did in my first post :P Just scroll down.

Yahoo answers may not be the best to go on but one google search put me off buying then selling for profit.
