Questions and Answers

I am planning to buy an iPhone 4S from a customer?

How can I find whether it is original or fake?

Fake iPhone phones may have memory card slots or extra SIM slots, may not have Pentalobe security screws, may not have a black screen when the display is off, may not have the Apple logotype on the back of the phone, and may have bad touchscreen response.

Check the serial number by going to https://checkcoverage.apple.com/ and entering it. You should enter the serial number, the code that you see in the picture, and click "Continue". To find the serial number of your phone, tap on the cog-shaped Settings icon. Tap on "General". Tap on "About".

The easiest method is turning on your phone, tapping on "Settings", "General", and "About". You will see your serial number if you scroll down to "Serial Number". Now, open the Apple web site to enter the serial number in the upper field. Do not forget to enter a generated code under it to bypass spam protection. Click "Continue". The web site will give out the information on your phone status and warranty.

It has everything no extra storage at the back, no welcome screen, verified the serial number at apple support, yet when I tap on the app store it requires a Google account. can't sign in to my apple ID or iCloud. could it be that it is fake. I have tried: I have tried resetting it to factory settings yet the same results. I think it was caused by: I really can't tell what the problem is
