They still have to pay the tax according to state law they just pay it on the back end and hope to make money off of the accessories which are way over priced so that they make more money. In the end if you are smart you will find better deals on cases online. As to the law itself in California it sucks ass I have to deal with it all the time I work for a company that sells cell phones and not saying we are any better of a company then wal-mart, but I hate those customers who flip out because of the tax and try to argue that wal-mart doesn't charge the tax so we shouldn't. If you really care that much go buy your phone there because at the end of the day I don't make commission. Just my thoughts. Whatever the new iPhone ends up being it is going to be quality.
