You can, of course, also buy older phones outright on sites like eBay or Swappa, which reviews and approves all the electronics it sells. That process includes checking the phone’s electronic serial number, or ESN, against online databases to see whether a phone has been blacklisted — if it has been reported stolen, for example — what carriers it is compatible with and its price range. If you’re considering buying a used phone from a site like Craigslist or eBay, you can use Swappa’s site to check the ESN yourself — a good tip if you’re shopping for used phones.
