    I wish it was that way here. I'm pretty far back at 120. But the manager came out and said they had about 250. Just about everyone in front is ordering two at a time.

    Everyone in the line here is buying to sell. Total BS. They are all getting two each.

    I don't know what store the OP was at, but at the larger Apple stores, they would certainly be getting a lot more than 250 total phones, more likely well over 1,000 total. At the smaller stores I guess 250 could be possible.

    If you were just in it for the profit why not just preorder?

    Because of the 3 to 4 week backlog most likely.

    In before the free market BS talk people like to make when defending these scaplers.

    Actual customers are getting screwed because the scaplers will camp for days due to the financial gain where actual customers won't.

    Was 250 total plus. They still have stock of every other model. Several men walked away with 5-6 bags each holding 2 very large boxes.

    Scalpers will then resell them to customers who didn't want to stand in line. It's not like scalpers are hiding the phones under a mattress out something. Phones end up in customers hands either way. And yes, free market. Also, blame yourself for scalpers. If people didn't stand in line ask night, scalpers wouldn't either.
