    How is someone going to buy an iPhone for you and sign a contract in your name to activate it? I'm pretty sure they aren't just going to go passing the things out to anyone / everyone. If you don't already have an AT&T account I would think at minimum a credit check would be required.

    We'll see though....

    No no, the guy waits in line till the last minute, swapping spots with you (whilst getting paid).

    Basically he's sacrificing hours of his life for someone to get an iPhone, in the hopes they'll pay a premium for him to do so.

    I have seen them advertised for about $250-300 depending on when you want them to stand in line....if you think of it from thier perspective, you pay them $250 and they are halfway to buying an iPhone themselves. Clever scheme...

    Haven't AT&T and Apple confirmed that the iPhone will be available online? Who would pay $250 on top of the $599 for the phone?



    ......$849 for a PHONE. :p ...and that's before the monthly charges ensue...

    These guys are freaking geniuses. Theres so much hype for this phone that you'd be crazy not to take advantage and cash in on it.

    They can indeed be very sharp-witted.

    I figured someone with a cleaver imagination would be more adept at cutting in line.
