Before buying an iPhone from the most popular online shops, like eBay, Amazon or Craigslist, you need to Check iPhone Unlock Status. You should not depend only on the sellers description!
By Checking an iPhone’s Unlock Status, you will be able to really check if the iPhone you are about to buy has a good and attractive price.
Check iPhone Unlock Status – Why should I do that?
Let me start with what Locked and Unlocked iPhone is, then proceed with a real-life example, and I am sure that you will fully understand why the Check iPhone Unlock Status is important.
When an iPhone is Locked, it means that it can only operate to one Mobile Network. If you try to switch its SIM-Card with a different one, then you will receive a message that the SIM-Card you are trying to use is invalid.
