I would take that offer and buy a 5S. That is a crazy good offer, you shouldn't pass it up.

Do it. For a 5s. If it was a 5c then definitely not.

Sounds to good to be true.....thats way to much for an iPhone 5 32gig. I was trying to snag a 64gig mint iPhone 5 for $400 2 weeks ago.......even unlocked iPhone 5's are around $400-$450......I don't know.

Is this on eBay, Craigslist or some bloke in a pub offering that amount?

If that's way over the odds then I'd be suspicious, make sure you've cleared funds before sending. If they pay via PayPal log into your account to make sure the funds are there, would there be a risk also of a chargeback?

I often find if something's too good to be true then it probably isn't true.

I would only use Paypal because that's a too good to be true offer! If it's legit then good for it you!

Why are you even asking? Sell it before the sucker changes their mind!

Maybe through CL, but on ebay it's more like $500 for unlocked in mint condition. That's still less than $600 or even 565 in Canadian dollars.

If it's legit I'd definitely sell and buy into the iPhone 5s. The iPhone 5s is quite simply the best smartphone ever made and every true Apple fan should be carrying one at this point.
