    I know some people saw my other post about getting a 5C while I wait for my 5S. LOL. I decided not to do that since my 5S is coming next tuesday. However, deep inside i still want a 5C.

    What's the best way to get the 5C? i tried craigslist, ebay and they're all running for 500-600. i wonder if i do the sign up and cancel so i can pay $49?

    If you sign up and cancel then you are still on the hook for an ETF with whatever carrier you buy it from.

    The cheapest way to get one without a contract would be Craigslist.

    You can't read one of the dozens of other threads on the front page of these forums? Just had to click on this one and reply with something rude?

    You'll have to try eBay then. You'll probably pay slightly more than Craigslist because there are so many other buyers on eBay but it's still cheaper than full retail.

    I just hate when people respond to threads (on any forum; I see it on others I frequent, as well) just to tell them a thread like this already exists and to go looking for it.


    Out where I live, I saw a blue 5c that was practically brand new, for $400 on Craigslist. Others went for $450-$470.

    My local Future Shop and Best Buy have loads of them, so the demand must be dwindling.
