This post is a slightly edited replica of the listing we have on eBay, here. If you wish to purchase the item, please place a bid on it on eBay.
This item is a 16GB, Apple iPhone 5s in gold, which is boxed, in mint condition, and is factory unlocked to all networks. The phone was purchased in March 2014, and has been in pretty much constant use, but it has always been in a case, there has always been a screen protector attached (9h tempered glass), it has never been dropped, and there are no distinct marks or scratches etc. The screen is perfect, the power plug has never been used, and the cables and earphones are in excellent condition.
This phone has now been replaced with a shiny rose gold iPhone 6s, so I’m reluctantly putting it up for sale. I’ve performed a factory reset and totally wiped all data from the device, so it’s exactly as it was when first purchased – it has been removed from any iTunes accounts, has a fully charged battery (which lasts as long as it originally did) and is ready to set up on receipt.
I kept hold of the original box with all the original accessories (charger, earphones, lightning cable, sim tool, leaflets etc), and I’ve even put the original protective front and back stickers back on. This phone is in such good condition that it could easily be given as a gift. Please see the pictures below for shots from all angles. Pictures where the screen is lit were taken before I wiped the phone, just to show things like the different networks and the quality of the screen.
The firmware on the device is at the latest iOS released version, and has been kept up to date with only official releases. It has never been jailbroken, or used for anything other than its original purpose. It has never been opened or had any screws undone. There are no dead or bright pixels, the cameras both take excellent pictures with no distortion or missing pixels, and all functions work as expected.
This phone comes from a smoke free home, so there are no nicotine stains or smells.
I have removed all data and factory reset the device, before putting it away in its box. When the new owner turns it on, they’ll be prompted to go through setup, in the same way as when the device was new. 4G works perfectly on this device, as does the bluetooth functionality and wi-fi.
If you have any questions about the item, please contact us (unless the question is “Will you end the auction early for £xxx?”, for which I’m afraid the answer has to be “No!”).

I will post the phone for free, using a ParcelForce Worldwide tracked, 48 hour delivery service on the day following the auction’s end, unless you choose to pay extra for the 24 hour delivery service. If you want the phone immediately, I’m more than happy for you to collect the item in person. I’m happy to take cash on collection or PayPal either way.
Payment is by cash on collection or PayPal only. I’m afraid I cannot ship outside the United Kingdom, and I cannot end the auction early, so please don’t offer a fixed price!
