    Title says it all, is that a good range? I won a bid of $400 on the last 5 seconds.

    Now I started questioning myself.

    First of all: it is manufacturer refurbished.
    Second: The phone is space gray and the box for the white phone. ( so the serial number is not going to match the box with the phone).
    Third: The description is just plainly two words.

    Phone was shipped today and I will get it on Saturday.

    Is that a good deal on this phone?

    Reason is because I need a better better life and my 6s is not good at it, and mine is only 16 gb and it keeps running out of space. It also matched the serial number for a replacement battery which what I will do once I receive this phone to use while its battery is getting replaced.

    Here are some screenshots below

    Eh I would have checked the IMEI. It says T-Mobile and if its being financed on someone's account you could have a lot of issues.

    When you get the phone, look at the model number and IMEI. You can research each online. You could search the model number and figure out what networks it'll work on.

    It also only shows a face down photo, so there may be scratches on the screen. A description of "great condition" with no further detail can be very subjective. Good thing is eBay always sides with the buyer so you may have a case for item not as described if the front is roughed up.

    If your having problems with bad battery life why not buy a new phone? I personally would've sold the 6s and bought either a 7 or 7 plus.

    I know right. Just sell th 6s and get a 7. Unless of course he simply can't afford the cost of a 7 even after selling the 6s

    Say your account was hacked, you didn't buy it... You get to keep it cause it's on you to send it back to the seller and the seller gets his money cause he's protected through paypal as long as he shipped with a tracking number. Some jerk did it to me and I was pissed. I had to wait 4 months before I got my phone back cause the jerk didn't pick it up from the post office.

    I am strictly on every two years upgrade. I can afford the 7 but I just want a control over this little things and I like the headphone jack.

    Wouldn't buy it without knowing the IMEI/serial no. Device might be stolen and ICloud locked. Without the original POP Apple won't unlock it

    To me, it seems too good to be true. Looking on Swappa, 6s Plus models for T-Mobile sold for between $450-500. So hopefully the phone isn't iCloud locked and/or stolen. Kind of odd that the phone is space gray yet the box is for a gold 6s Plus. I'd personally inspect the phone with a fine tooth comb once it's delivered.

    Just wanted to update ya all. The phone came and it is is honestly in great condition, came with everything but the headphones. Checked IMEI and serial number, including iCloud where I backed up my account all turned out to be great.

    Been using it for 2 days and not seeing anything wrong with it.
