    Hello! I'm Shazad.I'm currently thinking if buying a couple of iPhone 6s 64GB for my personal use.But what makes me delay is the buyer is offering me $800 for both the phones which is awkward for me.Can anyone offer such a price for a sealed pack iphone 6s that also for two units!Can I know why it is so?Please help me!
    Thanks in advance!

    Is the iPhone on insurance or contract then be careful. Think 3 times before getting it. Try amazon it's more safer. But if you like Ebay then get it from a business seller with million of feedbacks and good rating to be on the safe side.

    One iPhone 6S with 64GB of storage directly from Apple costs $749, if somebody is selling two for $800 my guess is the phones are stolen, fake or in extremely bad condition. I would personally stay away from this deal.

    If you have to ask such a question, you should really stick to authorized retail channels. You only spotted this one as a potential fake due to its skewed pricing.

    I would not in a zillion years. Too many unsuspecting buying like yourself fall for this. Brand new 6s 16 Gb from Verizon with a promotion is $549.00. Two 64 GB for $800 is not even close to new or its stolen. Save up enough and buy from Apple or some where safe. Don't be a fool. If you do and things go south, don't come back here and complain. You have been warned

    they have been most likely resealed , with used, / blacklisted/icloud locked/ or stolen goods. look sir if someone offered you a mercedez benz s500 2016 for 20k? wouldnt you think something was wrong there?

    It is not difficult to reseal an iPhone or iPad.
