So What’s Required to Pawn an iPhone?
Any iPhone can be pawned with just the typical accessories needed in order to use it. Obviously the most important would be the charging cord and/or brick. This allows us to test the iPhone on site to make sure there are no significant impairments. Next, we want what’s called an ESN. This is a unique number assigned to each phone and keeps track of them. If the phone has been reported stolen by a previous owner or if you’re still making payments on the phone, your carrier will labeled it as “dirty”. Until any and all pre-arrangements get settled, the phone will be devoid of access to anyone else. We won’t be able to resale phones like this and more than likely the device will be confiscated by local authorities. Most of the time it’s not an issue, but if you’re curious about the ESN there’s many websites available to find out. Swappa is one example.
Last relevant issue, is the iCloud. It is necessary to log out of iCloud before we can pawn your iPhone. Why? Well, because of the iCloud’s ability to lock the phone remotely from a computer. If the phone were to become locked for whatever reason it would become useless once in our possession. That means the whole purpose of the collateral loan gets defeated and subsequently trust is broken. If you aren’t able to do this before heading into the shop, we’re more than happy to assist you in removing it on the spot. Don’t worry logging out — your personal data is always stored by Apple Inc. You’ll be able to log right back in as soon as you get it back to a source for it.
