    So recently I saw an ad on someone selling an iPhone 6 16 GB for around roughly 125 USD but the phone is iCloud Locked, I checked the IMEI status on IMEI Check


    Model: APPLE iPhone 6

    Find My iPhone : ON
    iCloud Status :Clean
    Blacklist Status : Clean
    Meid :
    Simlock Status : Clean/Unlocked
    Country : United States

    So what do you guys think of it?

    If I get this, how can I unlock it?
    Is it worth getting for 125 USD ?

    Thanks

    You can't unlock it. Phone likely stolen. Don't buy it.

    Oh

    So what about these websites claiming they can do it?

    Does the unlock procedure involve hardware ?Do I have to open the phone and do something ?

    Sure, spend $125 on a device that you cannot do nothing with.
    It's a great deal...

    iPhone prices are stable. You really get what you pay for!

    I would buy one from a big online second hand shop. Some even give you warranty. In Europe up to two years for a used phone! So I would take 400-500 bucks and buy a working iPhone thats looking like a new one with warranty.

    It involves chip level repairs. If you're in an area where there are trained electronics techs, the lock can be removed.

    In Shenzhen, the cost is is around US$200 and a half day turnaround.

    The prices are relatively stable in my place as well but the question is how will I find a good one ?

    What if the phone that am going to buy is unlocked or repaired?
    Any idea on how to check before falling into these traps?

    What part of "Don't buy this phone" don't you understand?

    Buy cheap and live with the risk or buy a used one from a big company for a little more money and get a working phone.
    If you take the risk you will have to pay a little less.

    There is no remote diagnostic telling you if a phone has been hacked as far as I know!

    And like Azzin said: forget the 125$ phone!!!

    That would likely depend on your state laws and what's considered a felony under buying stolen property. Not every state is it a felony to purchase knowingly stolen property. It would have to be proven that the individual buying the property knew it was stolen.

    I'm confused...if you cannot do nothing, that means you can do something...so it would be a device you CAN do something with you are saying? ;)

    You could use it as a door stopper, paper weight or to balance a wobbling table maybe:D

    Swappa is a good place but it's hard to find an iPhone at a cheap price.
