I don't live in the US but in Europe, so I 'd like to ask the US iphone5 users' help, because I am now considering to buy an iphone 5 64GB from Ebay. The seller has described it "as new" and "unlocked (AT&T)", although she doesn't say how the iphone got unlocked or if it was unlocked from the start, on the contrary the most details she has given are the following: "I had it (the iphone 5 64GB) for one day bought it two weeks ago. there is a 3 mth warrenty i bought with phone i can use but i do believe a standard 1 yr warrenty and depends on your service you have. we didnt want it for the simple fact you had to have the apple itunes and credit card and i didnt want to add a credit card to my daughter account." When I asked for the IMEI number in order to check if the iphone's still locked or not, she answered "I am unable to find this out unless the phone is activated which it is not. u cant get on it without putting a sim in it and logging it in to wifi and havent paid for anyyhing." To me all this seems suspicious and I know "if it walks like a duck...", but I don't want to prejudge people without giving them the benefit of the doubt, so I would like to ask for the opinion of US iphone5 users and AT&T customers: 1) Does what she says or any of it make sense to you? Is it possible that she bought the iphone5 64GB 2 weeks ago / that she bought a 3 month warranty with the phone / 1 year (apple?) warranty"??? 2) AT&T does not lock iphones by IMEI as Sprint does?? Does AT&T sell iphones5 unlocked now or you should first sign a 6 month/1 or 2 year contract and then AT&T will unlock your iphone upon request if you have complied with all terms of the contract? 3) Is it true you cannot see the IMEI number on the iphone 5 unless it is activated? Isn't there any other way to find out the IMEI number? Since this was an AT&T iphone5 64GB, the contract/receipt with AT&T would not mention it, AT&T wouldn't know? Many thanks in advance!
