THIS GOES FOR EVERY CELL PHONE YOU BUY 2ND HAND!
Always get the IMEI number… ALWAYS
Or add into iphoneimei
Or check the status of your device in Canada protectyourdata.ca
and see if the iphone has been blacklisted or barred
Or call Apple and see if the iPhone has been blacklisted or barred 1-800-676-2775
When you are buying a used iPhone or iPad make sure it is ACTIVATED! As you can see and play with the apps and settings!
Always take a SIM card to activate it on the spot if it is not. If it goes smoothly and you can test everything and see the apps fine, enjoy your new device.
With the new iOS 7 and iOS 8 now out, it has a security feature lost or stolen devices, that requires the owners iTunes ID and password when activating, if the seller on the spot CAN NOT provide that information to continue, DO NOT BUY THE DEVICE!!, and there is NO WAY AROUND resetting it as before as a new device as it was with iOS 6 and under.
This means that the device is not owned by the person that is selling it and you will never be able to use it without this information or continue the activation steps to your new device!
All our iPhones we sell are pre-activated, and no ties to anyone’s old account. They are ready to go!
