    I bought a iphone4s from someone, I just want to use it as an iPod. Is it possible? I guess it had a previous owner but I don't wanted for another reason than for just listening to music on pandora.

    So you stole it. Cool! /sarcasm

    Sure you can use it as an iPod. That can't be the actual question though, can it?

    Yes, I have my own phone with a two year plan, I just want to have this other one as an iPod but i don't know if this person unlocked this phone or not. What can I do about just listening to pandora. Do I need to have it shut off?

    I am legitimately confused at the question. Are you waiting for the activation screen?

    No, the phone works fine, Im just afraid of listening music on this device because I bought it from someone I don't know, a street seller. I just want to know if I can listen to pandora without having any problems. The phone has no way to make any phone calls , it has a number and it's disconnected. Its an iphone4s

    You bought an iPhone 4s just for music? Are you crazy? iPod?

    Ring Apple, give them the serial number, and ask if it's been reported stolen... If not, I'd sell it, and then use that money to buy an iPod.

    Phones dont get reported stolen to Apple and Apple doesnt keep track of that.
    Usually carriers do that when reported stolen they blacklist the device.
    From the sound of the OP this is pretty much stolen property.

    I am going to call to see if the street seller lie to me, I did call the number that was there and it's disconnected. The seller told me it was his but I still not sure. I bought the phone because it's a small device and I can listen to music while I'm at the gym or driving. That's why I ask if I can listen to it and keep it in airplane mode or disable airplane mode and trust the seller of the phone being his.

    So you bought a stolen iPhone from a "street seller". no /sarcasm.

    Just restore it and use it any way you want. Oh, and don't trust "street sellers".

    Lol, thanks ... * cell phones providers lock cell phones when customers did not paid their bill. So the customer sell it, it's too bad because they can keep it, but that's them.

    That's them? Most people getting the iPhone actually want to use it as a phone, not an iPod.
