How to avoid iPhone to be reported stolen after buying used ??
I bought an iPhone 4 a few months ago, I used it for like 2 weeks, then it got blocked for service out of nowhere. After trying all I could, I called ATT customer service, only to find out my phone was reported stolen and being finger pointed for having it in my hands.
Basically what happened was that they guy who sold it to me, reported it stolen to get a new one through insurance. How do I know? Well the guy in fact had a new one in his hands when I bought this one with the screen cracked.
Anyways, the point it that my phone can only be used outside the US. Now, I bought another one 2 days ago, and called ATT to notify them I was buying this phone used from the original owner. And they told me they cant do anything, that the original owner can still report it stolen or lost at any time.
So, that means every single person using a used iphone can get their phone blocked at any time.
My question is, is there any possible way to buy a used iPhone and have peace of mind that it is legally yours????
