    I was looking at ebay and the AT&T iPad 2 32gb is going for $1250!! Time to put mine up for sale and wait a month or two to get another one, basically for free with the $500 profit!

    If you are willing to risk the ebay buyer screw you by claiming they "never received it". Just remember paypal always sides with the buyer.

    Probably being resold to another country.

    If i were to sell on ebay, I would only sell to someone with more than 5 positive feed backs and a confirmed US address.

    Just becareful, you may end up with zero money plus no ipad 2.

    That is just crazy. I can't believe anyone would be stupid enough to pay that much.

    Sellers aren't protected?! I hate how you can be an honest seller yet they side with the buyer. What if you only ship to paypal verified addresses, use signature confirmation of delivery etc?

    What if you deposit their money and then ship?!

    If you use the paypal shipping option so you get a tracking number there isnt much a buyer could do about saying the never received it. $500 is just too much to pass up.

    Man, I went through a miserable time when I tried to sell my iPhone 3G through eBay. I used Paypal, read and did everything that I could to protect myself. I saw that the buyer received it, then he put a hold on his funds because he decided that he didn't want it (he claimed it wasn't in the physical condition that I said it was, but I had posted lots of detailed pics on eBay showing it from every angle). Anyway, he sent it back to me undamaged , but I was sweating it thinking that I'd get an empty box, a damaged or different phone, or who knows what. Paypal was not helpful at all to me. I ultimately didn't get screwed since I got the iPhone back intact, but I found the whole process so stressful that I have no intention of using eBay again. I'm sure that there are zillions of people who use eBay everyday with great success, but I won't be one of them. If you can snag a great profit, go for it. Yes, the buyer can't say that they never received the shipment, but if the buyer claims that they received an empty box, though....it makes me cringe to think about it.

    Remember similar madness over the PS3...
    then after 3 weeks or so they were selling at a loss as it seemed 90%
    of the people standing inline to buy were ebay scalpers.

    The actual public demand was low.

    Don't expect that here but just find the demand strange.

    Other than the low quality cameras ,
    for most users in actual use the iPad 2 acts just like an iPad 1,
    and you can get an iPad 1 for $300!

    Yea, but if you look the buyer has zero feedback and is not a registered user. Probably just someone trying to mess up auctions. This has happened to me before.

    Makes me tempted to sell mine for 800, though after fees and all bs not worth 100 dollars profit. A lot of the expensive ones are worldwide shipping and people who will scam you.

    It's smart to sell for these high amounts. The problem is, you don't want to give yours up for the same reason someone is willing to pay so much; Catch 22 :D.

    The secret is to do this with stuff you don't care about, and not stuff you want for yourself. Just remember, there were a lot of people (maybe 10%?) that were waiting in line next to you who had no desire to own an iPad for themselves. Kind of separates the men from the boys; (you decide who is who). ;)

    Of course if you have the $$$$ :D

    (ok so i'm a know-it-all smart asss )

    more like 20 plus feedbacks...

    i shipped an ipad to latvia via USPS and customs held it over for 3 weeks. i filed a claim to see where it was and then got a call from apple asking me if the ipad was supposed to be shipping to latvia. nuts. i said yes and customs released it and the guy finally got his ipad, 4 weeks late. i just think the whole process would be quicker with fedex, and usps don't offer confirmation of delivery to other countries on all but one of their shipping options.

    it's a pity ebay and paypal now side with the buyer, i don't even think they allow sellers to leave negative feedback anymore. :mad:

    I've never shipped anything out of the country. Can of worms, and not worth the hassle and the potential downside.

    This makes me seriously consider selling mine.

    Its a black 64 gig ATT with a full body invisible shield, smart cover and an unlimited data sim.

    I live in Salt Lake City and had the zagg store (where they do training) install the IS. It looks great and is installed so much better than I ever could install it.

    I bet I could get $1,800 or possibly more. Tempting.

    What if they say nothing was in the box? You know it won't be the first time that has happened before on ebay.

    The paypal scare is way overstated. They have specificic guidelines, if followed, there's not much a buyer can do.

    A) only ship to verified people
    B) insure the item
    C) signature required

    If you do those three, you're probably fine much more often than not.

    Well I'm sure it's being sold to another Country. There is no way someone in the U.S is paying that much.
