    hi im going to buy an iphone 2g on craigslist soon. Any advice on what i should check/ask the seller? I've came up with this list, please tell me if im missing something.

    check screen
    check power/home buttons
    check if sim card slot works
    check mic/speaker
    make sure it's not some iphone clone
    make sure wifi works
    make sure no water damage

    anything else i should check?

    Accessories that it comes with (original cords etc..).

    Why they're selling it.

    Bring some headphones if you want to check that the jack works.

    Typically it should be obvious if an iPhone has had a rough life but I think you should be fine and know what you are looking for.
