Something to watch out for buying a phone online is the "model" of the phone. I got a one plus two about a month ago and been unable to get 4g. Finally found out why and its because the phone i received is a Chinese model of one plus two and that doesn't have the o2 4g band. Very frustrating Face with look of triumph

The maxim "Buyer Beware" applies to all purchases on line especially mobile phones.

In the case of buying a one plus two the only original stockists are oneplus . so buying from a third party you are always taking a risk with it. If that's the worst that happened you done really well, and won't be long before 02 get that 4g freq and 2 Giffgaff 4g and that quick anyway so don't worry about it !!! Lol

Are you going to keep it or going to sell it?
