Do check for any liquid damage as it can cause a formation of rust.                                                                                                                     
  • Price Estimate: Compare with similar brands and models. Accordingly, negotiate a price with the seller. Double check cheap offers for fake or stolen items.                                                                                                                       
  • Accessories: Are you being provided all the accessories. If not, find out what it would cost you and accordingly negotiate your price. Examine all the included accessories are working fine.                                                                            
  • Documents: Ensure you receive the necessary documents. Ask the seller for the IMEI or MEID. Simple online search yields several good resources for help.                                                                                                                                                   
  • Replicas/Clones: Be careful of replicas/clones. Insist on phone warranty & necessary documents. Replicas unmistakably look the same, so inspect very carefully.
