      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

How can you find out if a used iPhone is stolen?

6 posts in this topic

So long story short I lost my 4s on the weekend so I decided to buy one from kijiji.

Anyway, I went into telus today got a new sim, found an add online for a 4 so I bought it for 400. The ad said it was white but it turned out to be black, he said he screwed up in the add. I checked the serial number on apples site and it said it wasn't under warenty anymore but never said anything about it being flagged.

Anyway, when I got home I realized the serial number on the box was different than the phone and the charger cable/outlet are not the original. I then looked at his ad again and seen that he had several other ads up.

Those are all his ads. I emailed him when I got home and stated that the phone was actually black and put the serial number in and said that I'm just adding this in in case anything fishy comes up. He responded with "lol ok no problem"

So what should I do here? Should have been more careful, but if anything happens I have all the emails between me and him, I know his name and where he lives as well as his email and phone #

Should I call telus and see if they can tell if it was stolen? If it is what would happen? Could I get my money back?

There is really no way to tell if its stolen, once the sim is out all bets are off. Enjoy your phone try not to lose this one. :)

I ended up selling that one, buying a used 4s that was scratched to hell. I took that to the apple store and got a refurbished one cause the speaker cut out. Sold that phone And went to and Iphone 5, which I sold for a galaxy s3, which I traded for a 4s that i have now and the home button is now acting up.

So in theory, I'm out 100's of dollars and back to where I was prior to the op. :(
