Is this fully paid off?

rrv

    Hi,

     

    I am buying a T-mobile iPhone 8 Plus from a Swappa seller. I am going to use on T-mobile only for one of my existing lines. But still, will I be able to unlock the phone right away?

     

    I asked the seller if he has the proof that the phone is fully paid and he sent me the attached screenshot from his online t-mobile account since he doesn't have any receipt or original box.

    It looks like fully paid from the screenshot he sent me but still can someone please confirm?

     

    Is there anyway he can report the phone as stolen 1-2-3-4 months from now? Is there anyway I can prevent that happening?

     

    Thanks!

        Yes it is paid off, but that might not be what he sends you

         

        ask him to get it unlocked first and show that the device is unlocked through iTunes with matching IMEI.

          I agree with tidbits. Having him unlock the device first before purchase is the safest way to do things.

            tidbits & dragon1562 Thanks so much   The seller told me its unlocked, but I'll have him send me proof for unlock before I buy it.

             

            I need to buy a couple more T-mobile iPhone 8 pluses. Is there any cheapest (under 5-10 bucks) Non T-mobile sim card that I can just put in t-mobile iPhones and see if they're unlocked or not? I have Walmart & Best buy near me.

                It doesn't have to be activated.  You can check ebay.  may be able to go into AT&T or Verizon for a sim, but I have a feeling they are going to make you activate a new line of service.
