Guy tries to sell me iPhone X, I find out phone is not paid off, he claims it’s no big deal…just a reminder to always check IMEI when purchasing used
I’ve been searching for a used iPhone X (switched to Android 2 months ago, I hated it, and going back to iPhones). Found this one locally, and paid. The ad showed it was a clear phone, but on AT&T network which would have been fine with me. No IMEI listed, however it was a good price and bought it so no one else would grab it. He sent me the IMEI afterwords. I checked AT&T’s website ([https://www.att.com/deviceunlock](https://www.att.com/deviceunlock)) and it shows phone is not paid off. He claims it’s no big deal, however if the person who bought it eventually stops making payments (or already has), I would have had a bricked iPhone. Luckily he refunded immediately. Communications below were on my work phone.
