• [SIZE="3"][B]CLASSIFIED FORUM POLICY[/B][/SIZE] [B]Updated May 26th, 2010[/B]

    The Classifieds forum is provided by iLounge as a free 'marketplace' to buy, sell or trade Apple media devices (iPods/iPhones/iPads/tvs) or related accessories.

    It is not to be used for the sale of products by or to commercial entities, as defined by the commercial forum policy found here.

    Permitted Items

    • iPods
    • iPhones
    • iPads
    • Apple TVs and related accessories
    • iPod, iPhone and iPad accessories, such as cables, cases, speakers, headphones, docks, etc.
    • Original CDs or other original recorded music formats.

    Note that when listing an iPhone for sale, the seller must clearly indicate whether or not the iPhone is locked to a particular carrier, and if so which carrier the iPhone is for.

    Prohibited Items

    • Computer software of any kind.
    • Computer equipment such as laptops, desktop computers, monitors, or other peripherals that are not iPod related
    • Non-iPod handheld devices such as personal digital assistants (PDAs), other MP3 players/DAPs, cellular phones, or portable gaming systems, whether or not they also happen to play digital audio/video content.
    • Gift certificates/prepaid cards (e.g. iTunes Music Store or Apple Store gift cards).
    • Personally recorded media of any kind. This includes any kind of content distributed on a recordable CD/DVD, casette, diskette, or any other media format, including the content of an iPod itself. While we recognize that we cannot force a user to erase their hard drive before selling their iPod, existing content of an iPod should not be advertised as a selling point.
    • Any item or lot of items with a selling price in excess of $750 US.
    • Other items that are not directly related to the use or care of an Apple media device or related accessory

    Please note that the list of items above includes items for sale as well as requests to buy, and requests for trades. If you are not allowed to sell it, you are not allowed to trade it or advertise it for trade. Any adverts for prohibited items will be removed without notice.

    All members making use of this forum should exercise caution in any deals that they may decide to follow up. While 99.5% of transactions close without a problem and both parties are usually satisfied, there are those individuals who like to take advantage and use the internet as a way to scam people out of their hard earned money.

    We have set up a Buyer & Seller Feedback area for positive or negative feedback on previous transactions. You are advised to check the feedback on members before commencing.

    You are strongly advised to use the most secure method of payment for any item you are buying or selling. Some general advice can be found here.

    If we discover that a member has been involved in any dishonest activity in the forums we will ban that person and if there is evidence of a crime we will co-operate fully with the victim and/or law enforcement agencies to assist in making sure that justice is done.

    Remember, we cannot guarantee that an individual is who they say they are, nor that they have the item they are selling.

    When posting items, please keep the title of your thread concise, but include sufficient details to describe what you are selling. Also please include the prefix "FS:" (For Sale), "WTB:" (Wanted To Buy) or "WTT:" (Wanted To Trade) as this lets someone browsing the list clearly see the status of an item.

    Once your thread is no longer necessary (e.g. you have sold your item), please close it. There is an option to do this in the "Thread Tools" menu at the top of the thread. Only close your thread when you are sure that you no longer need it. Closed threads will automatically be moved into the Archived Classifieds forum, as will threads with no activity in 60 days or more.

    New Member Restrictions

    To help reduce the number of fraudulent listings from users who clearly sign up for iLounge merely to post such listings, we have instituted a new policy on the use of the Classifieds forum by new members.

    New "Freshman Loungers" will only be able to read the Classified forum and respond to existing threads and posts -- they will not be able to start their own threads offering items for sale until such time as they have reached "Regular Member" status ("Junior Lounger") which occurs after 10 posts have been made and they have been a member for at least 7 days.

  • With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

Graham Dutton aka grahamreiddutton@hotmail.com and reiddutton@shaw.ca had agreed to buy the iPod I am selling.

First he made an offer and asked if I would pay shipping, then he wanted to pay with a credit card through PayPal. He then agreed to pay the PayPal fees and shipping. Then he decided he wouldn't pay either and went back to his original offer. He was very difficult to deal with so I gave in, accepted his offer and he said he would send the money. A few days later when I still hadn't recieved the money by PayPal, I finally got a straight answer from him. He admitted he had decided not to send the money after all.

I had mentioned several times, my perfect feedback rating on heatware.com and suggested he join. He never responded to that point and now I know why he didn't want to join a rating service.

He had decided after he had already told me he would be sending the money and was supposed to have already sent the money on two seperate occasions.

He didn't even tell me he changed his mind, I had to write asking him where the money was.

And he never gave a reason why he didn't trust me, even though he was the one who had agreed to send the money twice and then lied. Even though I lowered the price from what we agreed upon to make him "more comfortable" (in his own words).

I am the one with the perfect feedback rating and he refused to join heatware.com (which was my big tip off he is dishonest)

If anyone has any questions about him I will be happy to provide his emails.

I agree with Mac

I have written someone about something they were selling and then changed my mind. Of course I never agreed to send the money, wasted alot of their time and then just blew them off either. That is wrong and certainly would tweak me to. I would certainly want to know if someone was doing that before they tried buying something from me.

"he refused to join heatware.com (which was my big tip off he is dishonest) " i had never stated this. prove this to me. i simply felt after many e-mails back and forth that i felt i could not trust you. also i had never said i would send the money. i have bought many things off people on the internet and i feel i must trust them completly, with you i could'nt. sorry move on. stop crying. sell you ipod to someone else.
