This is true. It would still work on t mobile and with some pre paid carriers without you having to do anything illegal. I would report him to the police. You have his phone number and maybe even his email address.
I recently helped my mom get a Verizon gs3 and we met at the Verizon store. They checked it out before I brought it so we knew it was legit. I buy phones local because the price is usually lower.

How would I unlock it? And could I buy a straight talk t mobile sim?

Okay so here is what I thought of doing but tell me if it makes sense. Get a straight talk t mobile sim for the phone and unlock the phone for t-mobile/straight talk? Im a little confused by my own question. But is that right. How do I unlock my phone. I honestly dont want to do anything illegal.

Essentially, you just need to unlock the phone and then take the sim card out. Whoever buys the phone from you can put in a SIM card for whatever network they want. Or use it on Straight Talk yourself (AT&T MVNO).
