Should I Buy a Phone from Craigslist?
In short, no you should not purchase a used phone from Craigslist if you can avoid it.
The primary reason is because there are no guarantees the phone will work for you. This means anything that was wrong with the phone is now your problem – from Bad ESN's to software problems to physical damage.
You also don’t get a warranty, so there is no going back from purchasing the phone.
Most importantly, you aren’t always safe physically when buying things off of Craigslist. To keep yourself safe we suggest meeting at your carrier store so that there are people around and you can have a rep check the phone to make sure its eligible to be reactivated.

If something goes wrong with the phone you purchased you can dispute the sale with eBay and depending on how the item was listed you could get your money back. It important to note that this is a process and it could be weeks before you get a refund while the dispute process works itself out.
For people who need their phone yesterday for internet access, work, or familial communications, this can be extremely upsetting and inconvenient.
