Device Condition

  • Does the device power on?
    Choose YES if device powers on and stays on when not connected to an external power source. The display must come on when the device is powered on.
  • Is the display fully working and free from discolouration?
    Choose NO if there are any symptoms of LCD burn - pink tint, yellowing along edges, white blotches, dead pixels, grey bars. To check, adjust screen to brightest setting and go to the "reset" screen, open a new "note" or anything that displays a white screen. Check the screen is fully working by navigating and swiping in all areas of the screen.
  • Are there any scratches, cracks or chips on the screen?
    Choose NO if the screen is free of scratches, cracks or chips. If any scratches or chips can be felt with a fingernail, they cannot be polished out and the screen needs replacing. Cracks and chips on the edges and corners of the screen are common. The screen must be properly fitted to the device and not 'lifted'.
  • Are there any scratches, cracks or chips on the casing of the device?
    Choose NO if the casing and bezel are free of any scratches, cracks, chips, dents, bends or other damage that requires the casing or bezel to be replaced. If any scratches or chips can be felt with a fingernail, they cannot be polished out and the casing or bezel will need replacing. Cracks and chips on the edges and corners of the casing or bezel are common.
  • Do all the keys, buttons and functions work as expected?
    Choose NO if any feature or function of the device is damaged or not properly functioning. This may include keys, buttons, Touch ID, cameras, sim card trays, headphone jacks or sockets etc.
  • Is your device locked to any network?
    Choose NO if the device will accept any sim card and work on all cellular networks. Phones from major networks (EE, Vodafone, O2, 3 etc) are usually locked to that network by default. Please contact your network to get your phone unlocked. It is much cheaper for you to do this than it is for us if we receive a network locked phone. Please see our FAQs for more information.

Unlike other sites Zapper do things a little different. We are dedicated to our price promise, ensuring that the price we quote is the price we pay.

Many other sites inflate their offer prices knowing that they will offer you less once the device has been inspected (even if they claim they won’t).

That is where we differ. We don’t want to over promise and under deliver and that is why we require you to accurately complete the condition questions so that the price we promise, is the price we pay.

We use the same industry standard condition grading tests as all of our competitors, the difference being we ask that you notify us of the condition prior to sending us the device, so that we can confidently honour the original offer price.

After a 1 year sales phenomenon in 2007 that resulted in 6.1 Million iPhone 2Gs being sold, Apple, under the direction of Steve Jobs, decided to release a phone that would be in line with the release of the new 3G cellular data network standard. It was a big move forward in the development and mobility of smartphones.

The new phone was to be called the iPhone 3G, a name being derived from the 3G network it was introducing. The new phone and network was very important for Apple as they had just announced the ability to develop third party applications for the iPhone using the Apple Software Development Kit (SDK), which could then be released onto the iPhone via the App Store. This decision was incredibly smart as it allowed the potential of the iPhone to reached and then expanded upon. Before long the iPhone 3G 16GB was a complete lifestyle device that could act as a personal assistant, personal trainer, business helper and entertainment manager.

That combined with the network to make a perfect pair, as with the faster download and upload speed that 3G allowed for (6.1Mb/s average) it meant that App Store applications could be downloaded without having to be at home, or waiting an inordinate amount of time for them to download on the move.

The best of all though was the hardware pairing with the operating system to create a snappy and lighting quick user-experience. Due to Apple making the decision to develop their own custom-built operating system that was designed specifically to sit on top of known hardware, which included a very speedy 412MHz processor and a PowerVR GPU. This meant that bloatware to allow for compatibility did not need to be included, rather the OS could be stripped down to its bare essentials. The result is that that processor could run through the GUI with complete ease, making the experience very stress free with almost zero loading or wait times.

Then with 16GB of flash storage, the iPhone 3G 16GB could hold up to 4,000 songs, which works out to almost 1000 hours of music. That’s a pretty incredible achievement, but to be expected from the same company as the iPod.

All of this incredible tech has us blown away at Zapper and has us reaching for our wallets so we can pay you for your iPhone 3G 16GB and because we’re so blown away we’ll give you free postage whenever you’re thinking ‘I want to sell my iPhone 3G 16GB’. So sell your iPhone with Zapper today!
