Trading my white iphone 5 for a black one

So today I posted on craigslist that I would like to trade my white iphone 5 for a black one. I was tired of waiting for AT&T to replenish their stock so I could switch it out. Someone responded to my post and we met up to do the switch. When I got home I plugged the phone into itunes and started a restore and to my surprise I had the following message pop up on the screen, "Congratuations, your iphone has been unlocked" Apparently this individual had a factory unlocked iphone that he traded for a factory locked one so I guess i come up one on the trade!!!

Me TOO

I too have a white iPhone5 but wanted the black one. I did the pre-order and was half asleep and didn't realize it until I check in on it before it was delivered. I had a white 3Gs and a black 4. I like the black one better.
I just put a craigslist post out there to see if i get any takers.

*fingers crossed*

Lol when I was stuck with the black 4s I wanted to trade for a white one

I would never trade my white 5 for a black.

And I wish I had gone with AT&T. Unlocking AT&T phones is so much easier. I mean, you can just pay five bucks for someone to do it. However, I'm stuck with Verizon. Boo.

Call me crazy but why the $!@k would you buy one color just to trade it? Why not just order, wait and buy the color you want or just wait? Seems so STUPID to take a risk.

Why not just do a color conversion and avoid all of the hassle and risk of meeting someone you found on Craigslist?

We're launching our iPhone 5 services very shortly, one of which will be color conversions. I'll be sure to PM you when they're up.

What's wrong with that? It's the best part about craigslist. If you're bored with something, trade it. When the S3 first came out, it was impossible to find a blue one, so I jumped on a white one. I put up an ad on CL and in a week, I had traded for a blue one.
