It is widely known that Apple is selling both Locked and Unlocked iPhones, and most people are buying them with a Mobile Network contract. They do this because the iPhones gets a bit cheaper, and they can get a good Mobile contract (Depending on the network you will choose).

The “bad” thing is that Apple releases a new iPhone model every year, so those that already bought one, are trying to sell them in order to get their hands to the newer models. Those iPhones are locked, but many people are trying to sell them as unlocked. You can Check iPhone Lock Status before purchasing them, in order to avoid extra costs.

Check iPhone Lock Status – Why should I?Check iPhone Lock Status

From time to time, there are great iPhone offers to online shops, like Ebay, Craigslist and Amazon, almost too good to be true.

Those are the offers that you must pay extra attention, because buying an iPhone is not a simple task (And it is an expensive one). The iPhone, does not only need to be in a great shape (Which is also very important), it also needs to be able to operate with ANY Mobile Network.

How you can be sure that the iPhone you are planning to buy will work with all mobile networks? Can you put your faith to the seller? Will you trust that he is telling you truth?

What are the dangers – Check iPhone Lock Status

As I already told you, the danger is to buy an “unlocked” iPhone (As the seller advertises), but it will turn out a locked one! But is the real “damage” for you if you buy a locked iPhone instead of an unlocked one?

Buying a Locked iPhone:

When an iPhone is locked, it cannot operate to other mobile networks. This means that you must find a service to unlock it, and this can cost a lot! A simple unlock can cost you from $50 to $200, so if you buy a locked iPhone you will have to add extra money to unlock it!

Buying an Unlocked iPhone:

Your iPhone supports ALL mobile networks, and no extra costs are required after the purchase. This is what you should look for, and you can Check iPhone Lock Status to avoid buying locked iPhones!
