I want to buy note 20 on the gumtree site. Unwanted upgrade. How can I ensure that I am eligible for Samsung Manufacturers warranty ?
I do not know anything about upgrade system because I always buy my own phone.

In essence the 2 year manufacturers warranty follows the phone not the person buying it however Samsung may ask for proof of purchase.

 

Also I've seen in the past that a person has purchased a phone in good faith only for it to be imei blacklisted as part of an insurance claim a few weeks after using it.

 

I'd agree with the others with buying either from a reputable shop that buys and sells unwanted phones or direct from Samsung @madaboutplants

yeah... ive even seen it where the person buys a high end 2nd hand phone for several months and it still blacklists / blocks cause the original sly owner thinks they are long gone. Once a phone is blacklisted you have pretty much zero chance lifting that bar off.

buy it brand new with a UK warranty and proper proof of purchase, no risky or worry at all.
