How do I make sure a used phone wont be reported stolen?
But I have had an experience before where I bought a phone off craigslist and it worked great for a few days. And the it stopped working. I called my carrier and they said the owner reported the phone stolen. needless to say the seller ever answered my calls. Is there any way I can make sure that doesn't happen if I buy a phone like that again?
For example, if I make the transaction at a t-mobile store and have a worker input it in my account that I paid for the phone. would that work? does anyone know?
I know about checking the IMEI before the sale. But how do i make sure I don't get screwed over after? Any advice?
