Meetup in a public area, preferably where you know security or cameras are around. Make sure to bring a friend or two (somebody else in the background just in case something wrong happens). Have him turn on the device if it's charged and aspect it so it's to your liking.
I've seen the prices of iPhone 5's on Craigslist - there isn't enough markup @ $650 to go through 2 levels of buyers and sellers - there is something odd here.Hmm that's interesting. The person I'm buying from bought it brand new from another person on craigslist so I'm guessing he's not going to have a receipt.
I'm planning on checking the serial number and the imei with relevant databases
Several people have already told you not to buy this phone off c-list. One more here, you are a FOOL to buy that phone!
Although you already made the decision, I believe it was the right one. I was about to do a similar thing when I thought about the potential of the buyer having insurance (through carrier which includes loss/theft), selling you the phone, and then reporting it as stolen. They pay $200 or whatever their deductible is for the new one, but they are making $$ profit as well.Alright, I'm going to take your word for it and not buy it. Thanks guys
I honestly did not realize the warranty would transfer to a new buyer. Would buyer 3 need a sales receipt or just tale it in? ( learn something new every day)brand said:
No receipt or documents required for apple warranty. It goes by the serial number only so you could have a phone that has passed through like 5 different owners and still get a warranty replacement if there is something wrong with it.Wirelessly posted
