Hi All,

I'm thinking of buying a second hand 32GB iPhone 3GS off craigslist, meeting downtown tomorrow.

My question is, how do I tell if it's working fine? Like not dropped or malfunctioning or something. Any pointers?

Thanks,
Col

Well, look at is closely, preferably indoors. Make a call with it, ask the person on the other end if they hear you ok, etc. Check inside the headphone jack for the moisture indicator, make sure it's still white inside.. not red.

Otherwise, it's brand new so it has a full warranty from Apple should something go wrong with it.

Oh yeah the moisture indicator, that's a good one to look for.

So I could try a call, maybe try wifi or 3G data, maybe the compass, GPS. Anything else?

(Thanks for the input)

And ask the seller why he's selling a brand-new iPhone.
