BUYING A MOBILE THAT COMES FROM OVERSEAS

Like if this Guide is helpful
BE AWARE WHEN BUYING A MOBILE PHONE THAT COMES (MAILED) FROM OVERSEAS (ie HONGKONK), THE PHONE DOES NOT HAVE AN AUS WARRANTY (NO MATTER WHAT THEY HAVE WRITTEN)! UNLESS THE MOBILE COMES FROM WITHIN AUS THERE IS NO WARRANTY FROM THE MANUFACTURER ONLY THE SELLER AND YOU HAVE TO SEND IT BACK TO SELLER OVERSEAS FOR THEM TO REPAIR AT THEIR DISCRECTION  AND IT WILL COST YOU AND ONCE ITS BACK WITH THE SENDER YOU HAVE MANY PROBLEMS DEALING WITH THEM! THIS SELLERS WARRANTY IS NO WARRANTY AT ALL ALL THEY DO IS FIX AND ASK FOR MORE MONEY AND NEVER SEND ITEM BACK, BE WARE !! THEY MIGHT BE CHEAP TO BUY BUT THEIR WARRANTY POLICIES ARE A TOTAL SCAM. GOOD LUCK.
MY EXPERIENCE DEALING WITH THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN ON GOING FOR MANY MONTHS WITH LONG DELAYS BY THE SELLER AND STILL NO RESOLUTIONS. THEY RARELY RESPOND TO EMAILS/ MESSAGES AND INSIST ON PAYMENTS FOR REPAIRS WITH OUT ANY RESULTS.
BASICALLY IF YOU PURCHASE A PHONE AND SOMETHING GOES WRONG WITH IT HAVE IT FIXED HERE IN AUS BY A REPAIRER AT YOUR COST OR THROW IT AWAY.....
MY PHONE HAD MOJOR INTERNAL CIRCUIT ("MOTHER BOARD") FAULT, NEVER EVEN HAD SIM CARD IN IT AND IT WASN'T REPLACED BY SELLER, THEY INSISTED IT BE RETURNED AND IT WAS ALL GONE FROM THERE. YOU HAVE NO COME BACK TO EBAY OR PAYPAL YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH SELLER. MY EXPERIENCE IS IT WILL COST YOU MONEY MORE AND MORE WITH NO RESULTS, FRUSTRATIONS WITH LACK OF COMMUNICATION WITH SELLER TO THE POINT OF FRUSTRATION WITH NO RESULTS!
AGAIN BEWARE MANUFACTURE WILL NOT WARRANT MOBILE PHONE IN AUS THAT HAS BEEN PURCHASED/MAILED FROM OVERSEAS NO EXCEPTIONS.
DEALING WITH EBAY SELLERS THAT ARE BASED OVERSEAS IS A NIGHTMARE, IN THEIR FAVOUR, AND THEY KNOW THEY HAVE THE ADVANTAGE OVER YOU.
OZONLINE2 IS A TOTAL PAIN TO DEAL WITH AND YOU WILL BE TOTALLY SCREWED, OUT OF POCKET, ANGERY AND WISH YOU NEVER DEALT WITH THEM FROM THE BEGINNING. ALL IS OK UNTIL YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR PHONE AND NEED TO GET IT FIXED/LOOKED AT. MY SUGGESTION IS DON'T BUY FROM THEM TO BEGIN WITH, BUY FROM A BUSINESS BASED IN AUS (LIKE KOGAN) WHERE YOU ARE BETTER OFF DEALING WITH, HAVE COMPETITIVE RATES, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE SELLER IS HERE IN AUS AND THAT IS THE MAIN ISSUE THROUGH AND THROUGH.
