    Question Got Ripped Off $650 Just Now/Quick Question Regarding What I got

    so i posted an ad on craigslist for brand new/factory sealed/1.1.1/LOCKED iphone. guy came to my door with just that (it appeared to be). i opened it iphone was there great, gave him cash, he left. take off seal from iphone itself, coveredd in scratches. run outside hes long gone. it turns on automatically and usage shows 4 days of talk time. i try to tell what FW it is but he took the sim card so i can't call emergency number.

    i dont understand how he REsealed the box PERFECTLY. im still shocked.

    my question is - how to tell what FW it is? (i wanna resell it..honestly, telling the person what happened..i need $omething back..) and so i need SIM card. would my sisters ROGERS sim card work if i put it in the phone? would the emergency number work? she wants to know cuz she thinks itll screw up her phone and i want to know as well.. so thanks.

    pop the rogers sim in...it'll be fine. i bet its still unlocked. that totally sucks dude. the scratched parts can be replaced though...and for a pretty nominal fee too.

    Week 38? You should be happy, it's most probably software unlockable (if it still isn't).! Is it full of scratches? The iPhone is usually pretty tough.

    It sounds like your iPhone can be unlocked in no time...

    i'm reselling it. i'll prob take a $150-200 hit. i just pray it's 1.1.1 or lower ><;

    i can't stand used stuff, and this will just be a reminder of how this guy scammed me in my own house. ill have to find another 1.1.1 new/sealed..this one took forever to find ><; thanks for ur help guys..

    oh..and the iphone came packed with some PMS application (dead serious) - how can i remove this application without screwing up the phone? i don't want stuff like that on when i resell, it's rude. thanks.

    Are you sure you don't want to restore the firmware and jailbreak it again? Is the iPhone in such a bad shape? All of the iPhone's software wil be just like out of the box (apart from the installer ) It's your choice.
