    I would ask "Who would pay for that?", but then I answered my own question when I saw Micheal Moore's new trailer "Capitalism: A Love Story"

    So I ask now:

    How much more are people willing to pay if that phone would be more expensive?

    Imagine using that as a engagement thing instead of a ring! That'd be AWESOME! :D

    So what happens if something goes wrong with the phone and you need to take it to the genius bar??

    If you can afford to pay $4,000 for a phone, you can afford to get it fixed.

    First of all - the size of the diamond - even that many doesn't warrant that price tag.

    Second - the warranty is already invalid on the phone "NOTE: THE PHONE WAS PROFESSIONALLY TAKEN APART AND ASSAMBLED BACK TO INSTALL THE DIAMONDS"

    So no genius bar is going to touch it. Unless you pay $199 to replace it... which seems moot.

    That sucks that their is only one available. All my other girlfriends will get jealous if I just buy one of them and have to randomly pick which one gets it.

    They look like very cheap diamonds. They can't be worth $1000. And of course no warranty... :mad:

    just to show you all how i roll....im going to buy that phone and put it in a incase slider so you cant see the diamonds.....then toss a .99$ screen protector from Korea.

    HOW MUCH you wanna bet that Flavor Flave going to buy it with one of those neck straps and wear it like a necklace, with a giant LCD clock on the screen.....

    That may well be one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen.

    Oh yeah? Well Im getting the entire body resurfaced in Black Coral and my entire touch screen will be made out of one perfectly cut diamond with a clarity of D and NO inclusions whatsoever. That's just how *I* roll! :)

    What about the alignment of the diamonds with the bezel? I wouldn't buy it unless THAT was perfect.

    I bet those are even certified diamonds. They probably have I3 crappy diamonds in it, worth about 400.00. VVS might be a different story.

    3.45 tcw / 181 = 0.019 ct per stone. (scraps) A loose .02 ct diamond sells for about $1.50 (That's for an average quality diamond.)
    G1 is not a recognized clarity rating according to the GIA charts, it's just G.
    But for the sake of the auction, we'll let that error slide.
    SI 1/2 grade stones = low quality. Not the worst, but nothing I would put on a loved ones finger.
    Take all that into account and you have a little under $300 worth of Home Shopping Network quality diamonds.
