Question Is This A Good Deal On A Used iPhone 4?

mint condition iphone 4 16gb w/ only charger and cable $300 (a kid at school is selling it).

i got the imei and serial number and when i looked it up on apple's warranty, it does pull up so it is a legit phone, but here is the problem...

Version: 4.2.1(8c148)
Modem Firmware: 03.10.01

i can unlock at 4.2.1 if i upgrade to the ipad 6.15 baseband which is not reversable and i do not want to do that and the dev team stated no more unlock until 4.2.5 or 4.3 is out (http://news.softpedia.com/news/Dev-T...t-178501.shtml).

with that being said, should i spend $300 on a mint condition iphone 4 with just charger and usb or do you guys think by the time 4.2.5 or 4.3 is out along with an unlock, used iphone 4 prices will be in the $300s anyway?

i may even contact apple or att support and give them the IMEI number and see if its stolen or lost.. not sure if apple or att blocks iphones thats have been reported lost or stolen because i dont think you can get insurance on it

iphone unlock for 4.2.1 is ONLY for iphone 3G/3GS. there is no unlock out for iphone 4 running 4.2.1 baseband 4.1 and higher. 300 for iphone 4 is a good deal, but if u want to unlock it then you're out of luck for a few more months until apple releases more updated firmwares

edit: oops just read the baseband, i believe theres a way to do it for your baseband. perhaps u are right

A new iphone 4 16GB is $650 without a contract. That is a VERY good deal.

you do not need iPad baseband to unlock iPhone 4. iPad baseband will only work on 3G/3GS

+1 There is no way to unlock this phone! Untethered jailbreak is available though.

$300 is a very good deal, and to the skeptics, I bought a 16GB 4 for $350 in NOVEMBER. I do buy and sell these all the time though, that was one of my best pickups.

Good luck
