    Omg... What's this nonsense in Ebay.. Iphone 5 16gb for more than $1,000. What's happening to people with the iPhone 5. You can buy the phone for less than that in an ATT store.. Even without contract. This is cracy. I wanted to buy an iPhone 5 and when I see those prices I might be better buying from BestBuy or Att store...

    Anybody would be crazy to spend that kind of money on a phone, when you can get it for half that without contract.

    Maybe I should just sell mine.... $600 profit could go a long way, and I wouldn't mind using my 4S for a while longer :p

    sellers are just listing it at that crazy price but doesnt necessarily mean it will sell at that price. buyers most likely wont bite at it. theyre just hoping and wishing that some idiot would actually go for it, but highly doubt it.

    Give it a few months till Apple catches up with demand and all those crazy prices will go away.
    Supply and demand...

    Yes... That's what Im gonna do. I wonder why there isn't enough iphone 5 yet... You go to a ATT store and you cant buy one.. They are all waiting for Apple to send them a batch

    Same with Apple stores, verizon stores, best buys etc....
    The production has slowed down due to quality controll issues and demand is very high still.
    Takes about a month to get one in if you preorder one online or at a store.

    Well... My wife's account in ATT says she can get the iPhone 5 in an early upgrade for $549... That would be the 32GB model. I guess I'll use that early upgrade option.
