Buying a iPhone 4 from my friend who will in turn report it stolen for insurance.
The title is pretty self explanatory. It's been YEARS since I've lurked the forums and sought advice.
I have a friend who has a brand new iPhone 4g. He has it fully insured with anti theft protection which he so boastfully announced - He needs to make a car payment this april which costs 250$ I jokingly said, "Hey I'll buy you're phone off you for 250 and you can in turn report it report it stolen". He's now on board with this idea, but claims Apple and his carrier have an anti deebity dah theft detection kill the phone function.
With the awesomeness of the Dev team and the power of jailbreaking, unlocking, cloaking and killswitching. Is there any way to buy his phone but still be able to use it afterwards? Or will his service provider brick it to all hell and back. Also if it is possible, what firmware should the phone have before I commit, are there any prerequisites before an unlock with another carrier can incur ?
I have an Iphone 3g, had it since it first came out years ago; it's been jailbroken over and over again, along with unlocking. (Thank you to all the geniuses <3) it served me well but it's time to update.
I'm really sorry if this isn't posted in the right thread, or if this is in violation of rules. I never intended for it to be.
Thanks for taking the time to read my post, I appreciate what you do here.
