Buying a BNIB Samsung s7 tomorrow

Anything to look for? Or just assume it's fine because of a sealed box?

If you get them to call in to transfer to your account, then they can no longer blacklist it.

Usually sellers wouldn't agree as I said I get the BS excuses how they can't meet. I ask 4-5 on kijiji last year that I gave up and accepted of paying retail/upgrades.
