    I want on [redacted] (Canadian Craigslist I guess) as I was looking to buy an iPhone 6. I found an unlocked 64G silver iPhone in mint condition and the buyer was asking for 680$.

    I am going to meet him later today, but I need to be sure I am buying a real iPhone and not a fake one.

    I watched videos on the Internet, but I am still not sure. Is there any way I can post the picture on here and get your thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Pictures will not be proof, in my opinion, and no, you cannot post photos as an anonymous user. Anyway, you need to be familiar with iOS. If you are then you will know if it's real or a fake. If you're that concerned or unsure, have the seller meet you at an Apple Store and have one of the geniuses inspect it for you.

    When you have the phone and before you purchase it go into settings:general:about. The model number should be MKTC2LL/A.

    You can also look at the serial number and look it up on apple's self solve site.

    You should also be able to get the MEID and contact your carrier to make sure the phone is not on the lost or stolen list. If it is on that list, you will not be able to activate the phone.

    Great idea. Even if it's a real iPhone, it's worthless if it's been reported stolen.
