He was on my flight from Portland, OR.
All bags were full of iPhone 6s. He laughed about it.
I went buy the washington sq. mall apple store around 1pm and it was crazy to see how still 100's of people lined up and most all appeared to be scalpers.
Wow. Some serious business he got there.
And how it was? From what country?
He speaks english?
They are going to sell all that phones for big money. You could ask him how much for one
Yeah, you could tell who the scalpers were, the head guy was handing out gift cards from his big stack to these guys in line and then walking off.
Remove if you need to mods
He ought to be worried about being robbed.
How is this guy going to get back to his country without having to PAY TAXES FOR 129129512 sealed iPhones??? :\
I have a 5s and a 6 and I need to buy one more 6 for a friend overseas and I am afraid that I'll have to pay taxes and this guy gets away with tons of them :\
So easy to eliminate this problem.
Force everyone to activate at the store, only allot a certain number of off contract purchases.
At least for the first week or month.
noob. dont use Apple bags
He had multiple people buy 2 phones each, more than likely. Can't defeat that method.
Silver crosses palms (bribes)? Slip a few of those iPhones to the Customs guy where you're arriving...
Probably taking them back to China - they're not getting the iPHone 6 there this year
Black Market Takes Over the iPhone 6 Lines [Video]
Who says he got away with it?
It's China. He was probably able to bribe the customs guy at the airport to look the other way.
Maybe he purchased on his business plan and plans to surprise his employees on Monday?
Why would you take a picture of him?
Where is TSA when you need them!
Not sure why a free market, or Apple for that matter in particular, would or could limit sales of their products ...
All this situation with scalpers is worrying and I think Apple could do far more but they prefer the endless lines of people camping and queueing for the iPhone...
They do activate it at the store...I go to the Apple store a lot and in NH we have no sales tax, so all the people in Boston/MA all come up here for the tax free sales. Everytime i go there there will be at least 2 people buying around 50+ phones at a time. Apple sells them to them, opens them up and activates each one, then they wrap it back up.
A guy i work with has a son who works at that same Apple store and says they have one guy that comes in every couple weeks and buys a PALLET of iphones, they actually do it in the middle of the night i guess for his safety lol.
Didn't get an iPhone 6 today? Here why
I mean, free market right? If they're not stealing them then there's nothing wrong with it. I doubt Apple wants to spend the time policing phone sales on launch day. It sucks but I don't see a way around it.
