  • 2. * Lets say that you did sell used iPhone to get, say, a brand new iPhone 4S. What could you possibly do to prevent yourself from being victimized by troublemakers?
  • 3. * Here are a few preventive acts that you must always, always do no matter what kind of smartphone you have. Remember that the key to all these preventive acts is to protect yourself from identity theft and other smartphone related crimes.
  • 4. * Never Underestimate a Passcode * A lot of smartphone owners think that the passcode on your iPhone or on any smartphone for that matter exists only to prevent your nosy brother from being able to read your messages or messing with your games. Actually, it can do a lot better (or worse) than that. Did you know that you can prevent thieves from being able to sell used iPhone or access your personal information by simply enabling your auto erase feature so that your phone automatically erases all data you have on your smartphone after 10 failed attempts? * Make sure that you remember your passcode well and type it well so that you wont get locked out of your own iPhone!
  • 5. * Back Up Regularly * It may seem like a very tedious chore but backing up your files on iCloud or other cloud services or syncing them to your computer or laptop will help you save your personal data in case your iPhone gets stolen. * This is also helpful if youre planning to sell your iPhone because it makes file transfer easy! Back up your files to your cloud service at least once a week or twice a month!
  • 6. * Take Note of Your IMEI and Serial Number * IMEI or International Mobile Equipment Identity is a very unique set of numbers issued to identify a mobile device like a smartphone. It is usually found at the back of your device or on the inside of the battery compartment of your iPhone. Your iPhones box also has the IMEI code in it so look for it and take note of it. * You can also check it on your iPhones settings. Your IMEI and serial number can actually be used to permanently block your smartphone if it is stolen thus making it impossible for the thief to sell used iPhone.
  • 7. * Use Disguises * One of the major crimes that might lead to you losing your iPhone forever is when you get held up at gunpoint. Wake up, there are people who will force you to hand over your gadgets by threatening your life and this usually happens in dark alleyways and public transportation like buses, taxis and subways. To prevent this, try buying iPhone and iPad cases for disguising it. * Try Dodo cases that can make your iPhone or iPad look like a book. There are also cases that looked like a small Bible or iPhone cases that could be mistaken for Gameboys and calculators! Disguising your iPhone may seem a little dorky to do but wouldnt you rather sell used iPhone yourself than allow a thief to do it for you?
