Oh well it is what it is.
It's just smart business.
More fool anyone silly enough to pay such a stupid price for 4 iPhones
Yeah $950 each for a 16gb and the auction isn't over yet!
Agreed. Nothing wrong with trying to make some money. That said, you'd have to be crazy to pay that price.
And they are NOT factory unlocked as he says... Apple isn't selling unlocked 5s yet.
Let the man hustle.
How many threads do there need to be?
Yes, people are selling them on eBay. Big deal.
People are spending more than you would for them on eBay. Big deal.
Supply / Demand. It's how the world works.
The only way the scalpers will be stopped would be if Apple were to actually have enough phones for everyone at launch... so don't expect it to change anytime soon.
If they're from T-Mobile, they're factory unlocked.
People need to stop calling this type of stuff "business". Also, it's not very smart. Anyone who wants to take the time to do it would. A monkey can do this. It's called buying and selling or scalping if you will. Quit trying to make it more than that.
The best part is anyone in the market for four full-price phones is likely looking to sell at least 2 or 3 of them for an even greater markup! America!!
They are effectively the same as factory unlocked because factory unlocked phone's best benefit is that they don't lock you into a contract, as these phones don't. Unlocking then is only $1 away from eBay.
YOU are trying to make it more than it is. It's just business.
It's not a business dude. Are you 12?
I think you're butt-hurt.
Based on the definition, it is business. It is 100% business. I never said it was ethical business.
I wonder how much after fees and time, paying someone for the line, tax, etc etc will he end up getting? $500?
Plus the buyer can call a BS and keep the phones free and he can lost all that.
Nah just annoyed with people who claim they are running a "business" when all they are doing is buying and selling a product once a year. That's all I'm gonna say. Please go to college or read up on what defines a business. Buying and selling iPhones once a year is not considered a business.
Logging out and won't read your uneducated response FYI.
Even though you're supposedly not going to read this (you are), I'll respond anyway.
Go to Merriam-Webster, look up "business," and tell me what you find.
There isn't a provision, except perhaps in your feeble mind, that says it's not really a business if you only sell once a year.
It's called resale bro. No different than a deli buying a 36 case of water bottles for $5 at Costco and then selling them for $1.50 each.
ROFL... It doesn't matter how many days you work. If you buy low and can sell high, you are making money. If that's what you do, it's your business.
H&R Block get 90% of their work within the first 4 months of the year. Does that mean they're not a business cause they don't work 12 months a year?
I don't blame the sellers I blame the idiots that buy these.
It's not 2009 anymore. Everyone and their mom has an iPhone.
I fully support scalpers. I hope big scalping teams continue to hit Apple stores next week and they buy out entire shipments of gold. This is how capitalism is supposed to work: supply and demand.
ya but not the *gold* one...
i just dont get these people. its not as if the gold version is a limited edition. these idiots will have spent thousands on a phone everyone and their mom will have in a few weeks' time.
simple economics, supply and demand.
