Normally i would be saving money too but i use tethering...a lot haha.

Apple doesn't have the ***** to go after Google, so they sue the oem manufacturer that is their largest rival.

Buying a used phone today and picking it up pretty late. 9pm ish

a) How do I make sure its not stolen?

b) How do I make sure it will work with Verizon?

c) Anything else I should check outside of phone turns on and off? Dont want to buy a botched phone.

Vz phones are only Vz. It should have their logo on it somewhere.

Get the seller to tell you or send you a pic of the IMEI number. Then call Vz and ask if it is clean. If it is lost/stolen DO NOT BUY. If it is clean, you should be good to go.

Just check when you meet up with the person that the IMEI number is the same on the phone that you checked on with Vz.
