There probably wont be much of a shortage - Apple is the biggest company in the world, and if there is profit to be made on their products, dammit they are going to be the ones that make that profit!
Will never beat the xbox 360 launch day when i bought 6 of them (worked at virgin megastore) then took them over the road and sold them at CEX for twice what i paid. 2 grand profit in about an hour, winner!
foreigners are so annoying, they should make every single one of them leave the country..
This thread will be closed if any hints of racial behaviour continue.
The reason is probably that people want to buy them unlocked and contract free which you cannot do at phones 4u and o2.
Agreed. This thread is about buying to resell and whether there is a profit to be made by doing so.
Dunno why there would be, seems to be plenty to be had easily from loads of places.
Bought mine contract free from O2 this morning
Lol.. 64GB here too
Well I can see a 16Gb are going on ebay for £660 at the moment with 32bids and 16 minutes to go. Post to Americas, Asia, European Union, Australia
That is a pretty good profit (even after sellers fees).
Was £20 more than apple store prices though which was slightly annoying.
I'm surprised as there seems to be plenty of them to go round this time. Reckon you could walk into an O2 store tomorrow and pick one up.
64GB white iphones (the one to get it seems) are still avaiable at my localO2 stores
And it is now sold at £680 + shipping. That is £151 over RRP.
The risk of course is that the buyer scams you...e.g. says item not received or is damaged.
There is a 64Gb going for £920 at the moment ! And he will only post to the UK.
No idea why you'd buy one on fleabay for £150 above RRP when the shops have all got plenty of stock
ok there is something fishy going on. The one for £920 had lots of cancelled bids and eventually went for £870.
Pump and dump baby ! Roll in the suckers...
870 for a phone, how stupid are some people.
You'll often find people buying them if the release date in their own country is either later, or not at all. The iPhone wasn't available in China for a long time so people would buy it here and presumably ship it back to China for friends/family. Same with any other country.
