If you're thinking about buying an EE phone of ebay or somewhere else on the cheap, I wouldn't, as the seller may report the handset as stolen after sale to get double the profit (your money+money from EE.) That and it would be a gamble to make a purchase. Esp. when there is heavily mixed results with getting a VM SIM to work in an EE/T-Mobile/Orange phone.
