    It is a scam, you just get the actvation code which is not enough !!! You need the whole package ( box, receipt,.... ) EVERYTHING SO DON'T DO IT. I did a lot of research about it because I was also tempted

    "Apple" + "eBay" in the same sentence = scam. Period.:rolleyes:

    the irony of this. Before i really did searching into the shady practices of AC on eBay, I bought AC from this EXACT seller for my iPhone.

    He emailed the code pretty quickly, but his communication was ok and took him a while to leave feedback for me. I did have to utilize the AC on my iPhone a few months later, and i had no problems. I have since sold the iPhone last October.

    I, however, bought my AC from the Apple Store. No way am I going to take a risk like that.

    For the record, i paid $50 for the AC ( i think it is $70 in the store or something) for the iPhone. This guy is located in Seattle, Washington. Funny he is selling in the UK. I did send him questions after doing research on the eBay scams. He closed shop for a while....

    But no one has filed bad feedback though, but the buyers probably just registered it and it worked, thus cannot leave bad feedback when something goes wrong..
