    Anyone know how to reseal an iPhone so that it looks as if it was new from the factories?

    Some people on ebay just reseal their iphone box after unlocking it and I was wondering how they did it.

    Thanks~

    That seems ultra sketchy. But I assume they're just shrink wrapping it. You need shrink wrap bags and an impulse sealer and a heat gun (or good hair dryer) for shrink wrapping. But let me be the first to discourage you from doing so for the purpose of deception on eBay...if you do it just make it clear to buyers that you did.

    No no no... I am not selling on ebay. I just wanted to know how they put down "NEW IN BOX SEALED" and they tell us it was new with factory sealed but then in the next paragraph they tell us that they opened it up just to unlock it. It made no sense to me. That's why I was curious in asking.

    Thank you for your quick response however. I really appreciated it!

    Yeah that's kind of silly. Obviously they had to open the box. I guess some people just really like breaking the shrink wrap seal when they buy something new...even if it's not the original seal. But it's definitely sketchy that those sellers are saying "factory sealed" unless they mean their factory... :)
