“Phone was I perfect working order”

Note the use of the past tense.

“the digitiser / screen was broke”

Also past tense but I suspect it’s also ‘broke’ in present tense now.

“I purchased a replacement from eBay followed the step by step instructions and have not been able to switch on since !”

Good step-by-step instructions.

  • “I have pressed the menu and on button consecutively and still would not switch on”
  • “I have been on iTunes to reset and still only a black screen it did vibrate and make noises but nothing but black screen now …”
  • “cant get it to do anything…!!”
  • Have you tried hitting it? How about swearing at it?

    “I’ve replaced and got a new one as can’t be bothered now .”

    Amazing how many people only go down this route after they’ve spunked away a load of cash on a broken piece of tat, isn’t it?

    “I’m selling as parts or repair and no returns … without charger.”

    Nice pause…almost made us think it was including a charger, but as ever … it isn’t.

    All I want to do is pepper the seller with questions like:
    -Do you feel a complete idiot now that your quick-fix didn’t work?
    -Don’t you wish you just went out and bought the new one so you wouldn’t have to be in this predicament?
    -Have you learned a valuable lesson from all this? If so, please share.

    Going by their feedback they’d spent about £15 on replacement parts and sold the knackered phone for about £80 , so guess you have to wonder whether it would’ve netted them £65 before they tried to ‘fix’ it?
    They also appear to have bought “New Replacement LCD Screen Display for NOKIA N95+tools”.
    Twice.
    So, best of luck with that one. Maybe a phone without a screen might be a good idea next time?
