    Default Is this real?

    Hey guys, I'm grabbing a 3GS off craigslist tomorrow. This will be my first iPhone and I was just wondering if you could help me out with these pictures.






    Anything fishy?
    Thanks in advance

    Sorry, first thing that comes to mind is don't judge a book by its cover.

    I would be careful buying a 3GS from a stranger based only on photos (photoshop anyone?). It's more important to hold it and use it, make sure it works. If the seller is serious and reliable, he/she should let you test it out before paying for it. Make sure you test everything, unless you have the original sales slip from the owner and Apple confirms you can return it or repair it under warranty.

    Just my 2.

    Any legit 3GS is still going to be under warranty, but just to be sure, ask for the serial number and run it on Apple's website.

    Be careful and don't let your guard down, sometimes they'll show you the legit phone and let you try out all the features and such, then right before you're about to walk away, they stealthily swap in the crap phone. By the time you notice, they're long gone and you're SOL.

    Also check that it was not reported as lost or stolen. In UK this means that they will block the phone (IMEI) from any network. Put your sim card in and check that it receives signal and that you can make a call. If it is not yet activated then i would ask the seller to activate it so that you can test it.
