    This is really funny how people post ads like this. I sent the guy an email stating, "LOL $2,000?! You crack me up scalpers!"

    He did respond to my email stating:
    To make matters worse, it is only a 16GB, not even a 32 or 64.

    trippin. i can see spending the full retail for the phone because I've done that a lot but 2000???? that dude must be smoking something. why won't people just go to the store and pay the retail price? it makes no sense.

    Tell him it's "should have." It's not "should of." It just sounds like it because "should have" becomes "should've" when spoken.

    Because theyre sold out everywhere?

    If you have the money and don't want to wait, why not.

    Completely agree... Why did you add fuel to the fire and contact the seller?!

    Nothing wrong with that guy offering for that price. When the PS3 was launched, I sold three of 'em for $1300 each. If I was able to get these phones without the want to keep it, I'd be selling them for a great price too.

    The OP needs a simple lesson in supply and demand!

    They are selling them in Russia for over $3000. He might not get any bites in the US, but elsewhere.
