    check out this SITE(click here) sir..


    personal tip:

    -if kahibaw ka sa gig na imo paliton check general settings then "about", check if sakto ba ang capacity.
    -check volume up and down buttons if mo work bah
    -check silent switch if mo work bah (note: ig silent nimo dapat mo vibrate ang phone)
    -check sleep/wake button if mo work
    -check home button (note: 1tap home - goes to first page / search page; 2taps brings app switcher up)
    -check sd ang wifi if naa wifi available mas maayo.
    -if naa wifi available, go to appstore para macheck nimo if ma visit nimo ang appstore..


    goodluck sa pag palit..

    Lets do this systematically

    Before you meet the seller of the iphone bring the following

    Headphones & Laptop

    1. Look at the iphone and look at the box, first things first check the serial in the iphone
    Settings>general>about
    and make sure it matches the serial number on the box! why? because it will verify that it has never been repaired, and to check that it has not been stolen

    2. look at the iphone check all the edges and aluminum band, if you are happy with the condition

    3. check the connector and headphone jacks, look carefully and make sure they are not red. if they are they have been water damaged.

    4. plug in headphones test the music, plug in to laptop check if it will sync, plug into wall see if it will charge

    5. open notes and test the keyboard, press every key in portrait and landscape mode

    6. test the wifi, meet at a coffee shop, browse internet, watch youtube video

    7. make a call, make a text

    8. test the physical buttons, home button. volume up, volume down, the silent switch(phone should vibrate). power button.

    9. test the display, browse the internet and look for a black picture and a white picture look closely and make sure there are no dead pixels

    10. take a picture, take a video.

    that should have covered everything. if there is more feel free add on what ive mentioned
