Apple's venerable iPhone 7 drops to $200 with 128GB storage in 'spotlight' eBay deal0
Thus, if you're not willing to jump through Verizon's hoops to get the Apple A10 Fusion-powered device "free" of charge, you can still pick the thing up from its manufacturer's official clearance e-store... in exchange for an arguably excessive $399 and up. Or you can trust eBay vendor Bidallies to hook you up with a fully functional 128GB unit in good cosmetic condition at a price of only $199.99.
That's the storage configuration Apple currently sells for as much as 450 bucks, mind you, and Bidallies is a veteran eBay member with a near-flawless record and a 99.6 percent positive feedback score based on more than 25,000 customer ratings from the last 12 months alone.
In other words, although you don't get a warranty of any type here, you can be pretty sure the "professionally tested" and heavily discounted handsets work as advertised while presenting only "minor scrapes or scratches" due to handling. Available in rose gold, black, and jet black hues at the time of this writing, the iPhone 7 on sale here is factory unlocked for nationwide GSM compatibility. That means it can be activated on networks like AT&T and T-Mobile with little to no effort, but unfortunately, Sprint and Verizon use is strictly prohibited.
You may want to hurry if all the above make this a compelling deal, as the special offer seems to be capturing the attention of a large number of bargain hunters as the current centerpiece of eBay's section dedicated to the best discounts available sitewide. Apparently, people still love that compact Retina IPS LCD screen, classic Touch ID fingerprint scanner, decent battery life, stereo speakers, and perhaps most of all, Apple's stellar software support.
