    Even the ones with cracked glass go for more than that.

    Price has dropped since 5 came out but a 4s will still run u 300 n up. Even the broken ones are sold for 200 on eBay.

    LOL I am

    ----------

    I just have one more quick question for you guys. I'm considering a used Bad ESN iPhone 4s off of eBay, and I was wondering if (other than not being able to activate it on the network) if there was any other issues with buying a Bad ESN iPhone. Thanks!

    I'm amazed at the busted up junk iPhones being sold for $200+ on eBay. Some folks definitely have their priorities screwed up.

    What exactly would you be using it for? It cannot be activated on any US network if it has a bad ESN.

    Considering he's looking for off contract I would say he's not up for upgrade, wanting to use on prepaid, or looking to keep unlimited on Verizon.

    $200 just isn't going to cut it. Up it to $300 and keep an eye on craigslist and you'll find one.

    If its a bad esn phone then you will not be able to use it as a phone.
    Just as an ipod touch.
    Its blacklisted.

    Metropcs I wouldnt doubt.
    All other prepaid carriers that run off Tmobiles or AT&T's network wont work.
    All 4 major carriers share the same blacklisted database now.
    Again if its a verizon or sprint 4S then its useless since it wont accept any US carriers sims anyway.
    And if its sold as a bad ESN iphone 4S then Im pretty positive its about a CDMA carriers 4S and not AT&T's. Cause it would have said bad/blacklisted IMEI.
    Not ESN.

    Bad Esn iPhones can be unlocked with the Gevey sim and used on tmobile, straight talk, simple mobile, etc.

    One of my friends ordered a 64gb bad Esn Verizon iPhone 4S on eBay a few months ago for $300 and has been using it on tmobile since July.

    I sold my iPhone 4 for $230. You'll have a hard time finding a 4S for $200.

    Not exactly, I want Siri, and the 8 MP camera, and if I can get that for $225 (Bad ESN) on EB, that's MUCH better tan 300 for the new iPod

    ----------

    And the new iPod only has a 5MP Camera

    Only on basebands on firmware version 5.1.1 and below.
    Update that 4S to 6.0 and that gevey will be useless.

    For $200, you're lucky to get an iPhone 4. 4S is tree-fiddy and up.
