    Mint condition 64gb iPhone 5 with all the accessories for $625?
    I honestly only need 16gb but I'm considering 64 just because it seems like a good deal

    That is a great deal if the seller is including the box/accessories/packaging AND it is unlocked. If it's not unlocked, then no.

    Given that a brand new unit is $399, this is not a good deal.

    True, if the phone is locked. but if it is unlocked, then it's a great deal.

    I say if you're unable to upgrade at the moment and buying this off contract, it's a good deal regardless of it being unlocked.

    It's only a decent deal considering there's a possibility that the iPhone 5 will have a short product cycle & be replaced sooner than average. Personally my iPhone 5 is a disappointment I'm eager to get rid of. Just as soon as the new release is available I'm a buyer.

    With a 2 year lease that's tantamount to $2500.
