    for those of you consider selling your iPhone X, do you remove the sim card prior selling? since there weren't any sim-free model, so everyone comes with a sim card associate with a phone number right? i want to sell my phone in a sealed box but guess i have to remove the sim card in front of the buyer during the sell.

    please do not turn this into a keepers vs scalpers thread.

    Same here bud. Luckily my buyer is in the area and i don’t have to ship it. I will let him break the seal and hand over the SIM card don’t want to take away from his joy.

    Yeah but most of the buyers willing to pay decent markups are intending to resell them in the sealed box to some foreign buyers for even more profits. In those cases I don't think they will break the factory seal just for u to take out your sim.

    But aren't most of the the sealed phones useless without opening them up for verification? From my understanding unless you bought it without giving account info or it's a t-mobile phone it's no use to the next person sealed.
