What else can go wrong ? Imei24 and swappa both said they were good to go ! Should I still get it ?
If the imei comes back clean.. then generally you are good to go.. nothing to worry about.
What carrier are you with??
I’m with att. What if they report it stolen or it’s still being paid off and they stop paying it ?
At any point after buying the IMEI could be reported as stolen could be days or months.
They’d what I’m scared of
There's no reason why someone would sell a legit good working iPhone way below market price on Swappa except for a nefarious one.
There's something wrong going on.
My advice is -avoid.
This ^. No free lunch.
Move along or you'll likely regret it.
Let’s assume it’s not stolen.
Any of the following can be the reason it’s so below-market:
-Hidden defect (e.g. speakers, battery)
-Repaired with counterfeit parts (screen - would be noticeable, battery)
-Bad cosmetic condition
It even shows sellers what the recently sold phones went for. No one in their right mind would sell a decent phone for that price. If you want to take a chance it’s on you, but there’s very little chance it’s as described.
get it and make a trade in when the new phone is out!
There is always a risk with a used phone.
Have you tried asking the seller why it's priced so low? Could be that they just forgot to include something in the description.
They'll either report it stolen or stop making payments on it, thus turning it into a brick for you. If not this then there's something wrong with it. Maybe they put a third party display and battery in it, which could make it function much worse.
Yes this is a big insurance fraud thing, and there's no way to stop it except don't buy from individuals since everything is clean when you buy it. They just file a stolen claim and the IMEI gets blacklisted. Wish they would find a way to counter it.
