    A family member gave me their water damaged AT&T iPhone 6/64GB. Didn't have Apple Care. He got it unlocked via AT&T website. I called Apple and asked since iPhone was unlocked would I get a $299 unlocked replacement. They said they couldn't do that and that I would have to get the replacement unlocked from AT&T.

    I got the $299 replacement today and went to AT&T site and requested an unlock. I've done this on my other iPhone lines under contract with success.

    I have all the accessories and the original box. The iPhone is still in factory replacement plastic. The box of course has the IME# etc of the damaged iPhone 6 but the replacement has a different IME#. I'm waiting for the unlock to hopefully go through.

    What's the best way to list and sell this? I figure at the very least I can make some money.

    Craigslist. If you use common sense you should come out ok. I'd sell it for $550.

    Thanks. But should I list it that's it's a replacement since the IME is different than on the box.

    It doesn't matter what u list it as.

    But u may get some slightly higher price saying it was just replaced by Apple and still in Replacement screen protector along with the paperwork from apple. So it would be better buy than a used iPhone.
