    Refurbished IPhones for straight talk

    Straight talk began selling refurbished iPhone 4 & 5s on their website and Walmart began today. Prices are $344 &$544 with a one month card. Any comments on this?

    If we weren't a month away from the new iphone. I would hate to see the new "value" iPhone come out with the same specs off contract for less... And with LTE enabled.

    Scammers have sold iphones on Craigslist and then reported the phone stolen with carrier blocking the phone from working. It is buyer beware.

    the new trick nowdays is to let it go past 90 days, then the seller report it lost/insurance claim/stolen or bailed out of contract. the buyer then is left with no recourse, after 90 days of transaction, most CC will not allow to dispute charges.
    at buyers consolation, he/she has an ipod and wifi device. but somebody posted here or gophone thread that the IMEI can be changed. I thought it was illegal to clone an ESN or deface the IMEI. I could be wrong.

    It is illegal to clone or alter the ESN & IMEI.

    check out post #21, op states some phones are super easy to change IMEI. not that i'm interested, but good reading. if its possible, I always buy my phones from AT&T except the Note 8.0 GT-N5100, I bought it on Amazon. Never bought from eBay or Craigslist. Money save up front might come back and bite me where the sun don't shine.

    It is not illegal to change the esn if you own both phones and dont sell them changed as you are not defrauding service or other people and this has been verified
    Thanks
