Not worthit, as soon as the iPhone 4s/5 comes out the prices will fall down and you will feel ripped off .

Yes rly.

The only way you can get it cheaper is if you but it in a mother country with a weaker currency than yours.

Apple sells it here for $659+tax (so around $740), you can find it on craigslist/kijiji for around $550. i've seen BNIB for that price.

Probably stolen.
If Apple and retailers sell them for $660+ brand new how would others on CL sell them brand new for $500?
