    Well it's not stolen... It's just being listed in data base

    If you report on tax form that you sold iPhone unlocks is like selling contra ban ? Would the IRS care?

    One off phone = 1 time thing?

    No it isn't. It's done hundreds of times.

    I know many people do it on eBay.. But maye they're all doing illegal..

    In theory you don't even own the iPhone, the iPhone owns you.

    I dont think anyone will care even if it was illegal to sell. I see people selling them all the time, probably find thousands from searching google

    You are not breaking any laws by unlocking the phone and selling it as long as you own it. The US government actually declared it legal back in 2010. I would post a link to the article, but I haven't been a member for long enough. :(
