    I'm looking to buy a Note 8 on Swappa and am new to buying phones from third parties. The price on used mint condition and even some "new unopened" Notes makes it possible to consider finally owning one. The worry I have is if I buy this phone from Swappa, Ebay, Craigslist, etc. I'm taking a big chance on peace of mind knowing that I can get it fixed from Samsung or even Tmo, my carrier. So my question is this: Does the remaining warranty life still apply to a third person buyer or once the phone changes hands from the original purchaser to someone else, that warranty coverage is gone and you basically have no warranty coverage?

    Technically speaking, you'd have no warranty.

    1. This warranty is confined to the first purchaser of the product only.
    Of course, you could always still try to get a defect claimed under warranty. I wouldn't expect them to honor it, and the worse they could say is no anyway.

    Verizon has enforced the original purchaser rule. Original receipt means nothing, they track the IMEI number.
