    Default [Advice] AT&T legit > Can i use a 2nd Hand 1st Gen iPhone ?

    If I were to purchase an iphone thru craigslist... Am I able to do a restore / update to it without locking it? I mean if I use it on a AT&T network with contract, Am I able to with someone elses old phone and say it is mine now?
    I see warnings on craigslist saying not to restore/update..another comes with a active 2yr insurance on it? Basically if I buy a iPhone pre used is it now mine or do I need to register it somewhere?

    Thank You

    You would not need to restore it. If you are a legit AT&T customer, just pop your SIM card into it and it should work. You should have a full functioning iPhone.

    Restore it only if it isn't working correctly. Obviously, restoring would re-lock the phone to AT&T and remove any jailbreaking.

    Yeah, you'd probably want to call AT&T to have them set up the iPhone data plan if you want to have Edge access. Otherwise, you'll have a huge bill!

    You shouldn't (and DON'T) have to sign a new contract, either, if you purchased this phone from a friend or such.

    OH, I didnt know restoring factory settings will re-lock the phone to att. That sucks. How do I unlock it now? Its shwoing me to plug it to itunes. when i plug, all its doing is take me back to factory settings and enter sim. when i enter the sim, it says invalid and itunes doesnt recognise it.
