Who got this Ivory 302 cheap?
« on: December 26, 2015, 01:43:02 PM »
Listed at 10:13 at $15 with a BIN at $35, it only lasted 12 minutes. I clicked on the BIN as soon as I saw it but it was sold. Had 14 views so who was #14 that took this phone home for $35 plus $18 shipping? I think the seller left some money on the table.

Some cracks shown on the handset caps and maybe one on the lower back edge. Looks like a thick finger wheel.

So, who got a belated Christmas present from Santa Seller?

EDIT: Ooops, forgot the link - thanks WDS for posting it.

I saw that and pressed the BIN as fast as I could also!  Darn, just seconds too late!  It looks like a nice one despite the stated issues.  Hope someone here got a late Christmas present!

zapper,

Same phone, same listing photos. Seller ended the one you found and relisted it. Must have been an error in it other than the low BIN offered.

But, then, the seller got $15 more for it than what was wanted in this first listing, $20.

The #2 link is a different phone, with a seamless Ivory handset and no number card but with corner cracks.

And, what's a " . . . and has european wire connection." as stated by the seller . . .  ;)

Wow, what incredible deals with both! It's times like this that ebay sellers should use as an example for researching an item before selling it! ::)

I wonder if the seller has any more for sale? If so, they'd be pretty blind not to try researching them first before listing!

Shhhh! I've got my browser page set to ebay newly listed items, just in case there's another one in there.

Yes I was the lucky one to see it and grab it in time, it arrived on new years eve, so didn't get time to put it on as a find of the month for December, not sure if I put it on for January if it truly qualifies, but I will try :-)

It is in pretty good shape, plungers are stuck and has a few usual hairline cracks.

Hah! Shows what I know about who is and is not a member around here! Sorry about that.

Yes you can submit a late find from December for the January Find of the Month, not a problem.
