    I'm confused, you opened up a phone you don't own?

    What are you asking, what is legit and what is fake that you want confirmations? Plus what's wrong, since your title mentions fixable?

    The circuit board could be fried for all you know. DO not pay more than $20 as it may be a doorstop. No way to know if it is legit or fixable by looking at it.

    Oh I'm sure its fixable as long as its not totally destroyed, stolen or counterfeit. Just take it to the apple store and pay them $299 and they will switch it out and take care of you

    Looking at similar phones on swappa , you might be able to make some money doing this.
    If I were you, I would not pay more then $100 for the phone on the condition that apple allows me to swap it for $299. If I did not want to pay $299 for the replacement, I would skip it

    This is a sprint device.
    Unless sprint unlocks it, it wont work on AT&T t-mobile or Verizon.
    AT&T has no problem with the IMEI
    SWappa says the IMEI is clean
    T-MOBILE says the imei is not recognized.
    Activation lock is OFF
    Go to the sprint store. Give them the IMEI on the back of the device and ask them if they owe money, ask them if its okay for service.

    Thank you for posting such high quality pictures. No one here can tell you if its a good deal or not without your pictures showing the model number and imei #

    I think its worth the $299 apple will charge you to swap it out for a replacement. Just don't pay more then $100 for the phone

    thanks rigomortis for the answer, about the model: a1586 and imei: 352067066556120
    someone told me it's not 128 gb but i dont know how to tell
    the problem is that the seller does not provide the box and the accessories can I still swap for 299 with just the device ?

    You can't...if that were possible, the seller would have done it.

    Steer clear.

    Does the seller have the original receipt? Because if not, Apple could deny service since it could be a stolen/lost phone.

    The phone looks to be tampered with. The metal shield that usually goes over the display flex cables is missing

    Love these post from new comers. Some people are so gullible. Save some money and buy from Apple. You are asking for trouble so please don't come back here, and whine if things go south.
