Hi,

I thinking about buying a second hand 3gs of ebay. Is there any way i can register it under my name after i've bought it?

I'm worried about people reporting it as "lost" after a couple of months.

Thanks

I will be selling my 3G in the near future and I plan on just doing a restore to new and shipping it. SIM card and all. Once I activate the new phone my old 3G should be free from my name and number. I think AT&T automatically de-activates it.

What you say is true, but I always remove/destroy the sim with the phones that I sell. That's just me though.
