I've used Swappa to sell about 150-200 phones and purchased about 50. I highly recommend it. Do not use Craigslist, eBay, or Facebook to buy/sell a phone.

My uncle has a 6.1 and it works really well for the price point. It will definitely be compatible with AT&T assuming you find an unlocked version. It should be unlocked as long as you don't buy it through a non-ATT carrier.

Depends on the carrier, is my guess. If it is AT&T, T-mobile, or Sprint, it is probably locked. Verizon is required to unlock all their phones, though they've been trying to sneak some through and gotten busted. But regardless, do your due diligence.

Depends on the carrier. This was verizon. If you pay up front as I will, they are unlocked but you must activate them on Verizon. I guess that you can take the sim card out and unactivate it the next day, as I was told this by the floor rep.

T mobile makes you stay on their service for 40 days and nights before they will consider unlocking it for you. IDK about other carriers.

I agree. And I'd emphasize my focus on the expected life of product, which unfortunately is anyone's guess. I do this, because I'd rather not buy the same things over and over. Especially things over $100, and things that need installing.

Not sure about this review, but it is something:

Oooh, I forgot to mention it is not $750 cash back, nor gift card, nor instant discount. The $750 is bill credits for 24 months.

So my goal to get the $1000 iphone XR is to buy two for $2000, and then flip one for $800 on swappa. My net price is $1200 but then I have $750/24 months in Verizon bill credits for two years. My net price is $450 on the Xr I retain.

Going to buy a Samsung 55" TV, can't tell if current price is as low as it will go or if Friday/Monday it will go down more...

Heads up for those interested: In the next few days I will have a brand new in the box Pixel 3 XL and a mint condition (with all accessories) Pixel 2 XL (my personal phone) up for sale. I will cut AOers a deal of the going Swappa rate minus the cost of the Swappa sellers fee since you will save me that much. Let me know if anyone is interested via PM.
