It might be tempting to purchase this phone based on its lower price and even though it might work well in the UAE which has led me to write a very positive review, please avoid purchasing from this seller at all costs if you intend to use the phone internationally.
The phone is blacklisted on US and UK networks; this means that the original owner had reported it as lost or stolen, has been involved in an insurance claim, or was part of an un-paid contract. It seems that these phones are bought cheap on a US network contract and sold here at a lower price. Once the contract is not honoured, the network puts a block on them or the owner reports them as stolen to get an insurance rebate.
The phone is in perfect condition but i don’t know why it wasn’t in the original packaging! I always buy from apple store and i know how the packaging and sealing should be... but this one came in different. And what the electricity adapter isn’t the one compatible with UAE sockets.
