    anyone know how do these ebayers get tons of iphone 3G's? Can you buy more than one from apple?

    Speaking of buying, what are the process of buying an iphone from the apple store? Do you need to sign up on the spot or do you just need to be pre approved and take the phone home for activation?

    I know people in Germany travel to Czech Republic, Poland or Italy and buy there up to 10 phones (unlucked, prepaid). You can get there as many as you want as long as you are willing to pay the rather high costs (starting with 850 USD).

    how exactly do they buy in bulk? or just one at a time for that matter? Won't apple know if you purchased an iphone already?

    when did apple sell iphone 3G's to wholesellers?

    My guess is the ebay reseller's must be apple employee's and buying iphones in bulk without contracts and all.
