    I found a Lumia 820 for only $200. Im skeptical due to the price though. I've never bought a used phone. Is there anything I should be on the look out for?

    There was a post the other day about someone who bought a lumia from craigslist. When he went to activate it, the phone had been reported stolen and he was out of luck and money. Might want to check that it has valid numbers that can be activated.

    How can I do that though? Im so new to this any pointers will be greatly appreciated. I don't want to be suckered into buying a stolen/unusable phone.

    Ask for the IMEI number. You can call the carrier to verify.

    One option is to ask the seller to meet at the carrier store. If the seller refuses, the item is probably "hot".
