Hello buyers, and also sellers. some helpful TIPS/ADVICE for a safe transaction here on CL.


- always ask for the IMEI or a proof that the phone has CLEAN ESN/IMEI. Meaning, its NOT BLACKLISTED, STOLEN, or FINANCED ( WITH OUTSTANDING BALANCE OR UNDER CONTRACT/PROGRAM with a carrier. You can check this at these websites SWAPPA.COM, CHECKESNFREE.COM, TMOBILE WEBSITE, RINGPLUS.COM ( for sprint ) to name a few. If any of the above mentioned turns out NEGATIVE, DONT BUY IT!!!! Whatevet the seller says, DONT BUY and save your time and money.
- use the IMEI to know if its ICLOUD LOCKED OR if the FIND MY IPHONE is ON. Go to, if it says FIND MY IPHONE is ON, Ask sellet to TURN IT OFF if he has the password. If he says he cant, DONT BUY!!!!
- ask for pictures if they didnt post that much or didnt post pictures at all. If he cant send pics, DONT BUY!!!
