If this is the phone:
HTC One V 4GB Black Virgin Mobile Smartphone Excellent Condition No Contract 821793026172 | eBay
and I'm assuming it is, then how did someone think that the phone would work on another network. The first thing I notice when reading the title was "Black-Virgin Mobile Smartphone." Non payers are always going to be a big issue and eBay should be allow sellers to neg and neutral their buyers. Dropping out of a deal is a neg on this site so why can't it be on eBay?
