They have hundreds of phones so I'm sure that's it and also they buy phones from people to. I don't think they use Lex or semi, and the pics are stock photos mostly so that's why I mail them and ask detailed questions, and you can buy a AT&T iPhone locked to your carrier and then have it unlocked way cheaper than you can buy it already unlocked most of the time! That's what I do anyway.
    But if they restored to 6.1.3 or 6.1.4 - then I'm screwed. When a phone is listed as USED and JAILBROKEN - I just need to know for sure WHAT firmware they're on - before I buy.. Do you understand my concern? And since it's impossible to clean a JAILBROKEN phone totally out.. I just wonder what the SELLER does prior to selling it AS "Jailbroken" to get all his/her personal info off it. These phones of Gazelle - JUST RECENTLY became available.. So we haven't been able to restore for a LONG time. I just want to make 100% sure that I get a Jailbroken phone on at least 6.1. The seller won't respond to my requests.

    Asking for 100 percent certainty that a "used" phone is perfectly cleaned according to your standards is not possible, hence the "used" part.

    Sorry for stating the obvious but asking for advice on this is silly. Might as well ask for an exact date for the iOS 7 jailbreak. It's a question that has no answer that anyone here can give.

    Maybe if you asked for 99.94732% certainty, then that's something I can work with.

    Thanks, RKO. I know they're close today.. I first sent my eBay question on Friday afternoon. I'm not used to eBay sellers not getting back to me within a few hours. Makes me concerned.. But this isn't a topic for this thread.. Thanks anyway for everyone's thoughts..

    I just wanted to make sure the seller didn't hook up to iTunes for a full restore to assure all his/her personal info getting cleaned.. And wanted to know what the convention was from people's experiences buying used "pre-jailbroken" phones. Just curious as to what any of you would do if you sold a jb'ed phone. I'd ilex it. So I wasn't asking what my seller "has done" - but what he "might do". Just don't want to get caught with something I can't use.

    My question was a very reasonable one that any one here would ask. You made it sound as if it were a stupid question to ask.

    My apologies Grant. To me it sounded like you wanted assurances in how they cleaned them, like if they used ilex. I seriously doubt it and you asked several questions like that. I just thought it couldn't be answered by anyone.

    I never said stupid, I said silly, which I stand by that comment. But fair enough, no worries.

    I've bought used phones to use for testing and I have always bought them unjailbroken and with a certain firmware. Of the 3 that I have bought, I've never had an issue. All came from private sellers on eBay.

    Not sure I follow. You mean you've searched for a phone on eBay by firmware number but specifically did NOT want it if it said jailbroken?

    Hmm. And you actually found such a thing in the past? Wow. Sure aren't any out there now. Ive looked & looked. Been so long since 6.1.2 was signable. The person would have to have restored it months ago - left it on shelf unused and just now decided to sell - if you truly want no one else's problems. If the person's been using it since it was on 6.1.2 then to get ready for sale they'd restore it to get their data off and that would take it to most current firmware - useless to me.

    Only the most astute of iPhone owners knows how to use Erase All Contents and Settings which doesn't restore to a new firmware but cleans phone of all personal data, apps and settings.

    It's been a while since I bought one, so maybe I was lucky and it was still close to the signing window.

    Yeah. That makes sense. This store RKO mentioned looks good. Just want someone to tell me firmware version. Price is right.

    Just picked up a 64GB 5 with 6.1.2 on it for $149 from my provider. They are still out there. I made him open her all up to show me the firmware version. No problem.

    Through an AT&T store?I tried that with Radio Shack, Best Buy and Target - and they had none on 6.1.2.. So I've been trying.. You got lucky, my friend. Did you do any calling ahead asking about serial numbers?

    All iPhone 5'es that would still have 6.0-6.1.2 will have 4th digit "J" with 'any' 5th digit.. Or 4th digit "K" with 5th digit 1-9, or A, B or C.

    I just walked in to the Rogers store and asked to see what they had...same phone as the 5C 16GB they are offering up for the same price, so instead of my kid getting a 5, he'll get my 4S with Paragon already on it and I will load up the 5 the same.

    How did you know for sure it had 6.1.2 on it? Did you ask the salesperson to open 'every box' they had and started up the phone?? If so - that was a very nice salesman.. And what's Paragon?

    They had 2 phones. He opened up the 1st box and started it up for me. Good to go.
