So I recently became a top-rated eBay seller after my last evaluation. I was able to do this by selling iPhone unlocks on eBay. However, there is recent news (in the U.S.) that unlocking iPhones that are still on contract will be outlawed. I am not sure how this will affect this niche exactly because a lot of my customers unlock their out of contract phones but I get the occasional iPhone 5 (most of these are still on contract) and the occasional iPhone 4 and 4S that are on contract as well. It would be difficult for all parties involved to determine if the iPhone is on contract. Would eBay just stop allowing AT&T iPhone unlocks to cover their hides? I'd post a link to the article but I'm not allowed to but it's an article from technewsdaily and it was quoted by macrumors. Also, how much does top-rated seller influence my sales? I was always hesitant to dive into other niches because of competition but I think I might need to if I want to keep making a profit?
