I did a search and couldn't find anything on this board. I'm awaiting shipment on a brand new, unopened iphone4 that I bought on ebay (should be here Tuesday). The guy supposedly got it through an upgrade but never opened it. In my anxiousness to get this phone I have been scouring the net finding all things about the iphone4.
Anyway, I stumbled upon another site that said it would be difficult programing a phone bought in this method because whether the seller opened it or not, it is still tied to his account. He supposedly needs to activate it on his account first, accept the terms, then deactivate it then put back whatever phone he is using on Verizon. Only then can I activate it on mine. Does this sound correct?
I was hoping to get it and just hook it up to my itunes account and be done. Does anyone know for sure what the proper process is for doing this? If this is too much of a hassle for me I might just return it for a refund and pony up and get one from the local Apple store. What do you think?
