I have heard stories about certain groups of people buying up iPhones for sale in their home country for big money and not for personal use (perfectly legal). Anyway, I was at the Menlo Park NJ mall this morning around 11AM for something I needed and saw a relatively short line (counted 57 people not including myself) of people waiting for a 5S. So I decided to wait so I can get one for my wife since I already have mine. Of the 57 people in line 49 (counted) were seemingly of the same "group" all seemingly knowing each other in what seemed like one big family and chattering in a foreign language. I was able to watch through he window as virtually every purchase being made while I was standing in line (all were at the front 4 tables). Every person (husband, wife & sometimes "older children") in each group that went in 1 group at a time purchased 2 phones each and all paid by cash with LOTS of large bills pretty obviously buying "no contract" devices. It took around 55 minutes for the line to get to me and I was finally the next one. With about 3 people ahead of me a rep came out and said all he had left were 32gig Verizon (which is what I wanted) and 64gig ATT only in gray. Well, I finally got "escorted" in and placed my order, waited 3 minutes for the "getter" to bring my phone to the sales guy when .... "sorry Sir, all sold out." I was pissed. Not so much because I didn't get one (which did bother me somewhat because I wasted an hour) but because it was so obvious what was going on with what I would call these "gangs" of people buying phones simply for sale elsewhere and not for their own use. All legal, can't argue with that, just so dammmm frustrating. I guess there is no way to fix this problem since (as the Apple guy said when I said that the chances of any of these phones being activated in this country are slim to none) "we're just here to sell phones, doesn't matter what is being done with them." Just so annoying when obviously these large groups who gather keep "real" customers away from a chance to get a device. They must have some sort of "calling system" when they find a store with phones in stock because the vast majority did NOT seem like strangers to each other. It's worse than trying to get concert tickets. At least you do that by phone.
