Sometimes I try to distance myself from being called a geek or a nerd after I hear about some fanboys and the lengths they will go to defend their mobile platform of choice.
Smartphones are our “everything device” and most of us wouldn’t be anything without them – Yay Future! So I’m sure most people know EXACTLY where their precious iPhone is right now. If your iPhone is ever lost or stolen, you can rely on a couple of tricks and tools that may just help you get your baby back, because you know you will literally die without your phone.
If you’re looking for a good deal on an late-model iPhone, you’re in luck. Since the arrival of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, folks (like me) are putting up their slightly-used, mint-condition iPhone 4/4S/5/5C/5S up for sale on sites like eBay and Craigslist, or flooding their social media networks. The phones are in ample supply, and you may come across a seemingly “too good to be true” deal.
Before you make, phone calls, putting in bids, or starting message threads, you might want to make sure you won’t have the cops (or some vigilante owner) hunting you down after you’ve purchased a hot iPhone. Apple has released a quick little tool to help make sure you’re not buying an stolen iPhone.
