    I don't want to assume the worst... but how do so many people come into "legitimate" possession of unopened iPhones? Who would buy a new phone just to turn around and sell it at a significant loss?

    It depends on what they paid for the device
    In the first place and what the buyer is willing to pay for the device.

    But new iPhones are rarely discounted...

    True. Which makes me wonder how they obtain them in the first pace.
