    Personally, I wouldn't buy from a non-authorized source.

    Yeah...I wouldn't trust it. Until you can see and touch it...and even then, it could a scam of some sort. :(

    Maybe he's just desperate. You lack civility for being so rude.

    I wouldn't. It's kinda like gambling except you're likely going to loose the money .

    Just wanted to bump this up, is the site legit? Has anyone bought from them before? I know it's unlikely but want to get an opinion from someone who has actually purchased from them, not just based on the price...they have been around since December so there must be someone who has bought from them...

    No need for bumping. Did you even read the thread? 20 businesses operating
    out of the same office suite? No one bought from them because they are a SCAM :confused:

    Wait, you "know it's unlikely", but "there must be someone who has bought from them"? So which is it?

    They are obviously a fly by night operation who preys on those who think that because they've been around since December they must be legit. I have a nephew who's been around longer than that and he's a baby. I wouldn't buy an iPhone from him.

    Pffft I'm not a baby, I've been around since June 1989.

    Not too long, but if you send me that much money, you have a better chance of getting an iPhone than from that site. But it's still not a very good one.

    Last Tuesday (July 22) I sent them a question detailing my concerns about the product in question (Apple iPhone 3G - 100% SIM Unlocked - 16GB) via this contact page: http://www.welectronicsltd.com/contact_us.php?osCsid=48fd8a779da0f799a01fd48657ab17cb

    I stop waiting about 3 days ago. :mad:
    Until someone comes forward saying they have bought from this company successfully, this thread should act as a warning to other people about this site.
