well.. I got a lot of good advise and I appreciate it. Thank you guys. However; none of them answers my question. Again, is there a legal and safe method to buy a used iPhone? If so, what would it be?
I find hard to believe in the supposedly biggest Nation of the globe one cant safely buy a used phone. I simply believe nobody knowing the right method has posted here yet.
Safe? Read all preceding advice, including your own posts where your own phone number is at risk.
Never should have gotten back in. You are unable to learn from your own experience.

There is no completely safe way to buy a used iPhone (or anything else, for that matter). The closest you can come is to buy on eBay and pay with Paypal to get the buyer protection feature. Keep in mind that legitimate used iPhones sell for very close to their new price and sometimes even higher. So bargain iPhones usually have something seriously wrong. If a deal is too good to be true, it isn't.
