    Title says it all. What should we expect the scalpers to be listing the iPhone X for?

    My guess: 64GB = $1500-$1700
    256GB = $1600-$1900

    What do you guys think? What will they ACTUALLY sell for?

    I can't believe you would create a thread about this.

    I would not be surprised if price tags reach $3,000.

    I'm trying to figure out what the cost of me not pre-ordering will really be.

    Time would be the only cost.

    No stock, wait. Want it ASAP but don't wanna buy from a scalper? Pre order.

    No additional cost if you don’t buy from scalpers. ;)

    Actually you said you were buying and selling them to cover the cost of yours when it was eventually available on ur carrier Boost. So you're lying

    Actually you're right :) I am doing that. Didn't know if there was room for flipping after the fact.

    I'm being realistic. I know I won't get $3000, and I wouldn't charge that either. That's dumb.

    I expect 1400, if you want to move in volume and you sell to middleman who would pay cash.

    If you want to sell ebay or craigslist, I would say 1500-1600.

    Depending how far out they are back-ordered people will definitely pay that. If this thing slips in to March 2018 like some are predicting flipping prices will definitely soar.

    I think $3000, while people are saying this, is very close to just a pipe dream. If it were that easy to flip for that much, you bet I'd be fighting my way to get one. To flip.

    There are several complaining about the $1k base price with no markup. Even if you were lucky to land a celebrity or moneybags paying >$2000, it's no a guaranteed andvis purely by chance.

    $1700 for base more realistic for the desperate (which I am not) :)

    You are taking away the overseas customer base with deep pockets. $3k will be easy to get on release day.

    The cost of not preordering is that you wait a bit longer to get the phone. Paying well above the value of the phone is the price of your own impatience. Only you can decide how much that will cost you.

    Will pre-orders/shipping dates be pushed to mid 2018 within seconds or minutes? (I know it's either minutes or seconds, but I'm trying to figure out how many devices to use. I have 3 iPads + my Phone to use for this so I figure one will get through maybe.)

    I know. They will be doing the same thing as me just with one phone instead of the 2 or 3 I can get my hands on.

    I see, but I'm sure there will be plenty well under $3k that the overseas rich ppl would snap up. Or else we (as in us scalpers/potential scalpers) will end up relying on only foreign buyers to buy up the phones we're flipping
