What is an unlocked phone?Freedom
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

I bought an iPhone in April of last year off this website and the description said "Brand new iPhone". I received the phone within a few days and it was beautiful. It came in the box, still wrapped in plastic, no scratches or scrapes, and it required me to go through the whole set-up process making me believe it was the real deal. The phone worked like magic for the first couple months up until about 3 months ago. I started experiencing issues with it like the phone would power off and reboot itself all day long for weeks on end and the phone was unusable. So, within the past couple weeks I have been in close contact with Apple support and no technician was able to figure out what was wrong with it. Finally, I go in to the Apple store and ask for help. The Apple rep was very helpful and very patient. After about 3 hours of sitting in that store, I find out that the "Find my iPhone" app is registered in someone else's name that I have never heard of before which is scary because thousands of personal pictures of mine have apparently been updating onto this email that the seller has control of. So, basically I'm sitting in the Apple store feeling completely deprived of privacy, when the rep comes up to me and tells me he opened up my phone and found multiple missing parts which are vital for the phone to work properly. It was missing the two screws holding the phone together, and about 5 other huge pieces on the inside, as well as sticky liquid, and writing all over the hardware. I was also told that the display of my phone were not even real apple pieces.. so basically this person bought a jenky old phone off Ebay or whatever and is selling them to people ($300 in my case) and is portraying them as real iPhone products. IT IS A SCAM!!! Don't give your money to these types of people. YES, it is more expensive in the store BUT they do offer amazing payment options when you buy them through Apple and you will be THE ONLY person with access to your information rather than some creepy dude form across the country. PLEASE be aware and be careful when you purchase ANYTHING off of a 3rd party seller, OR ANY SELLER because it's not always what you hope it will be. Luckily, the people at Amazon support are extremely helpful and I will be receiving justice.
Do not be fooled by this scam artist, or other scam artists out there who resell defective electronics. Be part of the solution:if your phone doesn't work, donate it for spare parts or return it to its original source. Always request a serial number and trace it before buying any electronic.
