I sell my Xperia X with the Sailfish Licence on it. It is like new, in the box. I used it three months. The os is really great. My problem is with the camera. I new an excellent one, this is not the case with this phone. I'm quitting until the os get a phone with a really great camera. I sell it 350 euros with the licence included and free international shipping from France - Phone - Box - Headphones - AC Plug and cable

The phone camera is quite good, it is the AOSP driver that cannot focus properly. The problem is expected to be solved but who knows when.

350 if a new phone costs 230€ ?

Is the license transferrable? It's tied to your Jolla account, so if the new owner enters with his own account, the phone will be unlicensed (which means no Exchange, no predictive text input and above all no Alien Dalvik).

First thing is, I would never buy this phone without working DRM keys. You can't go back to stock ROM and sell it to normal folks. Second, there were recently offers for 'grade B' phones for €130. My 'grade A' in Dec. '17 came for €190.

I didn't see it was 220 euros new. I bought it 270 euros on and paid the licence 50 euros. The port is included (between 15 and 20 international). I'm not here to make money, I will discuss with someone interested. I prefer make someone happy with this phone better than let it sleep in my drawer. So I'm open! I precise that It was a pain to find a phone new at a decent price. I tried second hand phones, it didn't make it, so it was not that easy to do. Here, the phone is ready to use.

Thanks for the clarification. Also with 270 € your calculation doesn't make sense:

270 + 50 + 20 = 340 € : your cost <--- vs. ---> 350 € : asking price

Problems: - you used the phone for 3 months, even if it looks as new, it is not new - license transfer is a hassle (afaik it is possible, but it is additional bother) - (not your fault but...) the camera (driver) could be better

To make someone happy you'd have to dramatically lower the price... I don't mind at all if someone buys from you at € 350 but it should be an informed decision.

I noticed your sense of drama. Yes, there will be discussions, if someone is interested...And yes, everybody has the right to give an opinion.
