    I am thinking of buying a couple extra iPhone 5S (Unlocked) and listing them on CL. Since every year I see them selling for $800 (+)

    What would be the best color combination..

    I have set up a poll, but plan to buy three extras..

    1) All 3 in the Slate Gray or Graphite

    2) 2 in Slate Gray or Graphite and 1 in Champagne or Gold

    3) 1 in each color.

    What would be your choice if doing this?

    This should end well.

    I don't think you're going to end up getting what you want for these.

    I make this decision every day. My general rule is 'whatever I bought the least of'. Best way is to look at closed eBay sales and see if there is a pattern.

    China sold out Champagne just a bit ago. So me thinks it could happen here. who the heck knows for sure. They still had lots of Graphite

    Gold and Silver are the way to go for resale value. Most retailers will have plentiful stock of the Black/Gray one so if you can you should get all Silver and White models.

    What is the worst that happens? I am there picking up my personal phone, I buy a couple extra. Try to sell them on CL, if they don't sell I return them to the store...?

    I sold my locked AT&T 16gb Iphone 5 black THREE WEEKS after release for $810...there are people who buy them then send to countries in the middle east, south america, and asia who will pay top dollar for it.

    Thats what I am thinking.. If they don't sell I return them.. And I am out like 10 minutes to return them with the possibility to make a couple buck..


    It is, my girlfriend will be with me. I am buying one myself, and then have the other 3 spots available.
