I want to buy an iPad pro which is from the Vodafone UK.

The seller said that, it is totally paid, they send me 2 email about it, but i need Your help, i do not fully understand it. Pictures attached. Are theese mean that, the ipad is totally paid, and i dont need to fear from a block? Or what extra infos do i need?
If the seller cheat on me, the vodafone blocks totally the ipad so i can not use it more?

It's very rare that Vodafone would block the imei of a device for non payment @kmate911 

They'd instead restrict services on the sim card.

Looking at the images all seems to be in order.

Looks like the owner has reached their contractual term for the contract.

The only risk is if the original seller reports the ipad as lost or stolen and then the network can block the device from connecting via a sim card i.e mobile data.

Try to get some form of proof of purchase from the seller too just incase you need support in the future from Apple.

I wish you all the best with this.
