Aggravating story to follow along. Nice to see a positive ending and hope you're happy with it. Few things I learned I guess... Careful buying used phones. In this case the seller helped. If meeting a guy in a parking lot at Tims it may not go so well. Ensure the phone is unlocked, try it before buying. Install your own sim card if possible. Or just keep getting a new phone every 2 yrs while on some sort of plan by any carrier, and forget buying used.
