    Or are we not allowed to talk about re-selling?

    With all this pre-order talk, I'm assuming some of you are going to try and buy as many as you can... and then when the market is scarce/sold out, you'll re-sell the $600-$800 phone on Craigslist/eBay for probably $1200-$1500.

    I know this is frowned upon, so I guess that's why no one's posting about it?

    I wouldn't rule out the general population who would be just fine with 16gb...

    I think it'll be a lot easier to resell the iPhone 6 base 16gb gold to the general public on Craigslist, but you're probably right... 6+ with 64gb in gold will probably be in most demand. Assuming the shortages of gold from previous years.

    It is amazing though people will go for the 16gb still(I couldn't use it). And they will be buying that model in droves.

    I think the Plus model will be higher in demand. What do you think?

    iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+
    16gb or 64gb?
    Color?

    For resell purposes.

    The Plus should be in higher demand due to the better battery life and 1080p display.

    Personally, from my experiences on Craigslist, it's really easy to sell the base 16gb models. Most people just want an iPhone and if they can save $100 by getting only 16gb.. even if it's a re-sell, they'll jump on it.

    So I'm gonna say Gold iPhone 6+ with 16gb

    With Apple shipping over 10 million iPhones for September alone, I don't think the resale market will be as strong this year. I don't see these being sold for $1000-1500 like the Gold 5S was last year. The 5S was so constrained that they didn't even allow preorders.

    Maybe. It also depends what kind of area you live in. :cool:

    I wouldn't say you'd lose any money.. May not make as much as the gold 5s though. Worst case, you can just return any extras you have haha
