Users can purchase the Apple iPhone 5 on the eBay website. The website offers specific Apple iPhones depending on what the carrier is and what size drive the phones include.
As is the case with most items on eBay, there are some Apple iPhone 5s that are offered up using the bidding process. There are other phones that allow for users to simply buy the phone right away and forgo the bidding process. Some of the iPhone 5 phones are offered up as "factory unlocked," which means users can use them on a variety of networks with an appropriate SIM card.
