Well the phones will be worthless unless unlock, if they use them on the ATT system the IMEI numbers will come up out as stolen phones. If they call into unlock the phones we can run the IMEI numbers again and they will come up Hot. We do the same procedure from phones bought on ebay too.

Morons for sure, everything paid by credit/debit and worthless phones. Criminals aren't the brightest of the bunch.

the liberal moronic call never gives a suspect's color, unless the suspect was white.

so, from the moronic call's lack of description, it's easy to believe the suspect was black or latino.

THE LIBERAL MORONIC CALL IS NOTORIOUS FOR THIS.

Better off doing trades and barter system soon if DC doesn't figure the dollar is worthless.

can they not sell them as "brand new" phones? Then the buyer would be responsible for setting them up and they will take the blame...robber is long gone with the money. Just my thought and I do not know much about cell phones...!

I doubt if this seller warns them. And he probably sells them to people who do not know enough to ask...just want a phone because their credit is bad or something. I don't know though. Like I said, it is out of my realm so I am just guessing here.

Again? That's the second time that store got robbed in the past couple of months. And the Giant has been robbed a couple of times too.

And my husband wonders why I never want to go out alone anymore...

When you buy one like that get the phones code first then check it with the carrier, most legit ebay and such will know this and give you the code up front. There is also a big parts market, batteries, keyboards, LCD, cases.

Hey, thanx for the advice but I am not in the market for another phone and I would certainly only purchase one from a phone store rather than off the street. But good info to know. Thanx
