· When buying the ZOPO C3 on eBay, you will find that each phone will either be locked to a carrier or unlocked.

· An unlocked phone will allow buyers to insert any SIM card into the phone, which is handy if you plan to move or travel abroad.

  • An unlocked phone can be bought either factory-unlocked or seller-unlocked. The seller can unlock the phone through the provider and ZOPO or the phone might have been bought unlocked and carrier free from ZOPO.

· Look out for phones that have been "jail broken", which means software was bought to tamper with the phone to unlock it. If this is the case any warranty is void.

How to Buy a ZOPO C3 on eBay

When it comes to buying a ZOPO C3 on eBay, it's a straightforward process. There's no need to worry about phones coming with a cellular contract because all phones sold on eBay are sold contract free. This means it's great for those who don't want to be tied to a contract and want a simple phone upgrade or month-to-month contract. The best place to find a phone is eBay:

· To find a ZOPO C3 smartphone, start at eBay's home page and select ‘Mobile Phones & Accessories' from the drop down list that comes up when you hover over ‘Electronics'. On the following page pick ‘ Mobile Phones' and you will be taken to a list of every mobile phone for sale on eBay.

Once on this page buyers can choose from a variety of options to narrow the item listings down with everything from carrier and colour to style and carrier to choose from.

  • Make sure you check eBay Deals where you can save anything from 10% to 68% on smartphones and smartphone accessories. It's definitely a good place to check if you're looking at investing in a new phone and offers free delivery as an added extra.

· Before placing a bid it's important to take note of the seller's feedback score as it's an essential way to stay safe on eBay.

· To find out a seller's feedback score, look at the number next to their name and the higher the number is the more positive feedback they've had. Sellers receive a point for every positive feedback rating and lose a point for each piece of negative feedback submitted.
