I know there was another thread on this, but it didn't quite answer the question that i had. Namely, If you have a stolen iPhone is it possible to activate it? NO, i don't have a stolen iPhone and NO im not looking for one, i am however looking to get one off of eBay and am afraid of it being stolen goods as it happened to a buddy of mine a year or two ago through craigs list. I know the phone cant be re-activated if it already has been, but if the phone "fell of the back of a truck" would it still be usable/activateable? i just don't want to go to the hassle of going through eBay only to find out i have a $600 iBrick. And yes ive been hunting everywhere around me for one, i just cant wait anymore.
