Buying a financed phone on eBay - will I have issues using it on an AT&T MVNO?
I purchased an iPhone 13 Pro the other day on eBay for $450. It was listed as locked to AT&T, and only today when I was thinking about unlocking it for the heck of it, I got this error:
"You can't unlock this phone until the installment plan is paid off."
SO, the device is not paid off in full. The eBay seller claims this:
"Unpaid balances only blacklist when it's a device that been bought but not paid in the first 60 days... we keep them for 60 days before we sell.
I assure you this device will never blacklist."
Can anyone back up this claim by the seller? Will the phone not blacklist? I'm using it on RedPocket, an AT&T MVNO, and it hasn't given me any trouble yet in the first week.
