    Sorry, but apple does not sell the iphone 5 anymore. The 5C is the closest model to the 5, but it does not come in gold.

    The only Gold iPhones are the 5s and 6.
    iPhone 5 was available in Silver and Slate.

    When I said Silver I also meant White :)
    The 5 came in 2 combos :
    White & Silver
    Black & Slate

    It might be a mislabeled auction and you actually got a 5S. Can you post the link to it here? That might help people tell you if you got ripped off or if the person posting it just made a typo and forgot to say 5S.

    It also may have been one that's been put in a new case. Fairly common practice amongst those who don't see it's a bad idea and know somebody who will do it for them. Do you have a link or screenshots of the eBay ad?

    I once saw a Pink iPhone 5 with *Touch ID.
    The guy who ownes the phone is convinced that It's a legit limited edition iPhone 5.
    He bought it from a Pawn Shop....

    *It worked only as a normal Home Button and it could not read the finger print because the iPhone 5's logic board does not have the connector for the Touch ID cable and the Secure Element from the A7 SoC.*

    I have asked him if it is a 5s and he says no!! It is apparently brand new in box! I will wait tomorrow and see what happens but this is really putting me off using ebay and I have used ebay for many years!

    He is either telling porkies, is scamming you or the device is aftermarket and rebooted. Pictures of the listing?

    Perhaps next time, ask someone, like on here, before you buy

    Erm....
    Copy the link from the browser window/tab with the eBay listing and paste it here ?
    It might just work. :)
