    Was looking at buying a new 7 JB on EBay.

    Has anyone else had experiences buying brand new phones on eBay?

    R U getting a good price? I went into BestBuy and bought unlocked iPhone 7 128gb matte gray in 20 min. Also traded in my iPhone 6s.

    You may need the seller to open it and activate it if they bought it with a carrier.

    I know all my first time set-ups with AT&T iPhones required confirmation of the phone number it was ordered with, the billing zip code, and the last 4 digits of account owner's SSN.

    How reputable is the seller? High feedback rating? Do they usually sell new electronics, cell phones, etc.? Scams happen all the time, and it's easy to put something heavy in a box and shrink wrap it. BTW the shrink wrap on iPhone 7 comes with a pull tab that separates the wrapping in one solid piece that stays in the shape of the box. No more scissors or sharp edges needed!

    Dude, no kidding. I opened the box and went "Whoa" haha. Gone are the days of seperate films for the front and back of the device itself. Once pulled off the back or front, the rest comes with it.
