I am looking to sell my iPhone 6 Plus. Someone has asked me for the ESN and ICCID. Is it safe to share those numbers?

If it is on Sprint, meet up at a Sprint store.

OR if you're selling online

Screenshot results and take pic of ESN and send to buyer

OR

just send the person the ESN

Yes it is safe. The person just wants to make sure the ESN isn't blacklisted and it is clear. They're probably just making sure you aren't selling them a stolen phone.

I wouldn't give it, they can activate the phone on their account and then claim it stolen. I would just meet at a store or use swappa or something like that.

Don't give it out. This info is for the end buyer ONLY. I have sold literally hundreds of devices and this has always been my policy, even from the very start. Helps that I now have a good eBay rating. When I first got started, I stayed firm in this and probably lost some sale - but whatever.

 

First poster is right - just meet at a Sprint store if able (if local). If not, just find another buyer - there are many others out there.

 

EDIT: The screenshot idea is a good one, too....just blot out the numbers, or a portion.

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
