    Hey guys im new to the forum, but have just gone to look at an iphone 4 for sale, i didnt buy it for one reason the IMEI number displayed on the phone didn't match the one on the box. Was i right not to buy the phone? :confused:

    Looking forward to your reply's! :apple:

    Maybe the seller didnt have the original box.
    In the US the IMEI does not get black listed so if it was stolen it can still be used.

    Not worth the chance, there are plenty of legit iPhone sales out there. Try another seller. If you're weary, don't buy it.

    If you're weary, take a nap. However, if you're wary, don't buy the phone. ;) :D

    (Sorry, Hankster, I know I'm a s**th**d for doing that. I couldn't help myself. I'm a bad person. :eek::p)

    The original phone may have been replaced through Apple...

    The OP said the person selling the phone said it was a couple of weeks and didn't mention anything about having it replaced.

    There are many hundreds of iPhones for sale so it's not worth worrying about turning one down.
