    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.

    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.
