Used iPhones Helpful Tips When Purchasing a Used iPhone.
If you've ever wondered where to purchase a used iPhone at a great price,
we have the answers. We also have many important tips that will help you
from getting taken advantage of when buying your used iPhone.
There are several questions you must answer before you buy your used
iPhone. The first, is how much should I pay for a used iPhone? There is
no better reference for how much you should pay for your used iPhone than
ebay's completed item section, located on the left hand side of their
page. You can sort, used iPhone prices, from lowest to highest.
The first question to ask the seller is...Does the used iPhone have any
kind of water damage? The iPhone has a moisture detector. This moisture
indicator was put in place to keep people honest. One of the number one
reasons cell phones get damaged is water damage, and the manufactures

buy a used iPhone on ebay, it's important to know whether or not it's
locked or unlocked. Before placing a bid, ask the seller if it's a locked
or unlocked iPhone. If the seller says "Unlocked," that means the iPhone
can be used on any GSM network. If you ask the seller and he says
"Locked," that means the used iPhone can only be used with that
particular carrier, or network that the seller mentions.
