    edit: Sorry, "Trade Etiquette" (my spelling is way off today lol)


    What is the general guidelines for fair phone swapping online with a member here that isn't local to me?

    I don't think it's fair for one person to have to send his/her phone out without the other person doing the same. Just wondering what would be fair for both parties.

    Fixed the title for you. ;)

    It's also something I was wondering about, I always used well known sites to do my online buying. Maybe one of them could put the item on ebay as a buy-it now for the other person?

    I'm curious to read answers.

    I was thinking the same thing about eBay.

    Third party trades work best, preferrably someone with a high feedback on ebay and someone who is both well known and respected in this community.

    Yeah, I have a very good feedback on ebay (100% with 123 transactions since: Feb-14-02 on ebay). The person wanting to trade with me doesn't have an ebay account and only has a post count of 51 here. I guess that's not very reassuring.

    I guess if the deal goes south I could report the ESN as lost stolen. Would that make it useless even it he already activated it?

    Asurion would kill me, but at least I could recoup my phone as well.

    hhhmmmm... could there be a business in this need?

    why not pic a person on here.. to help...
    of course.. most will require some small fee to be the middle man.

    reminds me ... I could not believe it...
    10 yrs ago.. i was selling my 4 tires and wheel of my car...
    it was on another forum for that make of car.
    I said I was interested in selling them..
    a dude for the other side of the country said he wanted it.
    we agreed on $1200...
    he sent me the money first...I promised to ship out the next day.. after the check cleared (cashiers check).
    He sent the check!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    it cleared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    of course I sent it.. and even emailed him the pic of me dropping them off at the UPS.

    all went well...
    I still cant believe he sent me the money first! I was very impressed! :)
