I bought a iPhone 4 8GB white and the description said that the iPhone was "Service provider unlocked". Can someone explain me what this means because I thought that this phone was unlocked and unfortunately this phone is locked to AT&T. Wouldnt a better description for the phone be "Service provider locked" since this would mean that the phone is locked to its service provider which is AT&T. Please help!!! Thanks

Yup, I think you were deceived. "Service provider unlocked" to me would mean that it is locked to a carrier, ie. AT&T.

But shouldn't it be service provider locked. That makes more sense to be that it's unlocked to AT&T. Service provider unlocked seems like it would mean that it's unlocked......

I mean its through Best Buy auction site so I will have to go through them. It wasnt through CL or an induvidual seller. I was just pondering on what "Service provider unlocked" Which is why i bought it in the first place..

+1. You will get good results if you paid with Paypal. Paypal usually gets your money back as long as you send the product back.

Even if you use PayPal inside ebay and use your bank acct as payment, the result in your favor will depend on the evidence "both sides" present to paypal
If you use a credit you have a better of getting your money back because if PayPal or eBay won't help, you can always file a chargeback from your credit card company

I am more seller than buyer. I've stopped using PayPal simply bc it favors the buyers over the sellers. My PayPal account got shut down bc somebody opened a dispute on me saying they didn't receive the product when I sent it. They opted not to get insurance on the shipping so when it was lost they took it out on me.
Essentially, I'm saying a lot of times Paypal will listen to the buyer. Whether the buyer was in the wrong or not, of it isn't outrageously ridiculous PayPal will give the money back to the buyer regardless of where the transaction went from.
