Hi,

 

Planning on buying a s9 off gumtree from someone local to me which is about a few weeks old. I plan on getting it unlocked as i am on virgin mobile and this is ee, but a bit worried encase this person does not pay for his bill as its an upgrade and dont want it. 

 Any advice on this please or shall i stay away from it encse this happens?

Thanks

@valleyboy22  EE will not unlock the device until 6 months have passed from the time of purchase by the original owner.  

 

And if the original doesn’t pay the bill the device could get blacklisted and this blacklist will not be removed until that bill is paid.  They could also report it lost and so the device will get blacklisted and that will not be removed also.

Spend the extra and buy it new or from a reputable seller. Don't buy from gum tree. If you do pay by credit card.

Best to leave it I guess then encase. EBay unlock network I see to.
