I just have to say it somewhere because it's so freaking outrageous. Maybe someone out there will get a laugh out of this.. I'm involved in a back-and-forth email conversation with ebay's trust and safety team regarding my iPhone listing. I mean, I got a new iPhone, why would I keep my old one..except it's been about a week and ebay has pulled my listing a couple times and their trust and safety people, after a bunch of emails repeating the same thing and NOT telling me why the listing was pulled...said earlier today: Yeaaahhhhh. My iPhone is counterfeit? And you can't tell me why you think so? For reference, my ebay listing of my iPhone and my emails to trust and safety have either included or offered to include the following details: receipts for both my phones, with not only my name and email but also... serial numbers on the phone and on the receipts photos of, like, me waiting in line at the apple stores, me using the phone pretty much every-freaking-where from everywhere in socal to defcon and vegas to lake tahoe to wwdc and the bay dating from june 29, 2007 to july 11, 2008! imagine that? numerous photos of the phone itself lots and lots of at&t bills for an iphone documented warranty replacement with applecare documented product registration with apple long email trail with apple executive relations and the apple store regarding warranty replacement phone calls from the apple store about warranty replacement if the serial wasn't enough, you'd imagine Apple would stop me from registering a fake iPhone with a presumably questionable UDID for their iPhone developer program..wait, they didn't. The iPhone in question is registered to me as I can so obviously see in the developer program portal and have seen for weeks now and I can run my apps on it just fine! And my phone is still apparently counterfeit (and with that kind of logic, every single iPhone on ebay...). So if you keep that all in mind, ebay's pretty much implying to me that i bought a counterfeit iPhone from Apple on June 29, 2007 from an Apple retail employee at LA's flagship Apple Store at the Grove. That just happens to have all the characteristics of a real iPhone, whatever the heck that is. Well, i guess ebay lost out on fees, cause the last thing i'm going to do now is to ebay it. But i really want to know what kind of cretin will still think it's a counterfeit phone. I also still can't believe it took a few emails to get to that point. God, I'm so irritated. And thanks to de blob, I think I'm just going to keep my old phone for testing my apps and playing games now..
