[eBay.ca] New unlocked iPhone 7 Plus 32GB - $740 Free Shipping

Came across this listing on eBay for new iPhone 7 Plus. Listed as New, but box is unsealed. Seems like a decent deal, no?

Only thing that would concern me is if these units were repaired (not by apple) and how much warranty is left on it. I guess you have PayPal if things go south.

Uhhh what is this mean..

***Available storage is les due to phone software. Available storage is subject to change based on phone software updates and apps usage.

Doesn't this apply to every phone

Huh? Doesn't it just mean the more stuff you load on the phone, the amount of storage left goes down? Confused Face

Well that's how I interpreted but what's the point in putting that in the description.

It just means that you'll only realistically get like 26-28 GB of useable space on the 32GB phone because of the pre-installed software. Same thing happens for all phones. And the subject to change thing is for software updates. For example if I remember correctly iOS 10.3 was smaller because they implemented a new file system so it was smaller and therefore the users had more storage space.

Probably just to avoid the odd wingnut making a claim that there isn't 32GB of storage.

It just a caveat that when it's advertised at 32GB, you won't be able to store 32GB of photos/apps/music. The operating system, iOS, takes up a portion of it. The amount varies depending on the latest operating system.
It's a bit old, but here's an article that describes this:
