the enjoyment of having the phone a month or so before most people..is it worth 500+ dollars of profit lol thats the question

i could just keep using my iphone 5 its in perfect condition ive kept it in a defender otterbox since day one...but there is something very satisfying of having the newest thing that everybody wants and can't necessarily have right now aka iphone PLUS

everytime i brought it in a store or showed it in public people were like oh is that the plus can i see it, your so lucky, where/how did you get one, etc. in my opinion the attention is worth 500 dollars haha


how high do you all think the pluses will get up to on ebay in the next few days ? the one i have is already selling for around 1300 i wonder how much higher they will go

You still have the 5 too???

You would be completely stupid not to sell now and use a small amount of that to order another and get it in a month. Update to the new iOS and guess what you pretty much have the iphone6

lol obama nice

i did notice a few of the apple employee had pluses as their personal phones i was told and have read they aren't allowed to buy them yet... idk oh well

oh btw is that not awesome that the regular iphone 5 in good condition is STILL selling for about 275-300 on ebay ? for the 16 gb.. pretty cool so really you get the new model for like 40-50 percent off each year lol if you pay full price and get new one each time. the 5s is selling for like 400+

I went in the Apple store today to look at them and they were still stocked. And with a little over 4 million preorders, I wouldn't say it's having it before most people.

If you can sell it for that much and people are morons to spend that much and get ripped off, then I'd definitely do it lol

Are you one of those people who waited in line and smelled like a garbage can for 2 days so they could be hip, having it before others, and to be seen in the line?

Honestly though, as someone who doesn't own an Iphone, what's the technical difference between the ones sold at Apple versus the ones sold at Walmart/Best buy besides carrier issues?

Nothing is different between an iPhone sold at Apple vs another retail store.

It kinda blows my mind that you are weighing essentially paying $500 to use the iPhone6 for the next month.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

The only reason you want to keep the iPhone 6 right now is vanity. Take the money and run. In one month, get the phone back at regular price.

2 months from now, nobody will remember (or care) that you had an iPhone before everyone else.

Just to clarify the regular iphone 6 is easy to find however good luck finding the PLUS right now. Also yes I paid full retail for it luckily so no contract tied with it.

1400.. People are morons. Places sell out, but restocks are coming lol. Never understood why some people are willing to throw hundreds of dollars away just to have the newest item right this second instead of waiting a short period of time for more to be stocked

I would sell for a profit.. Then take the earnings and go buy whichever iPhone you want in a couple weeks or whenever your local place restocks and get it with a contract

Keep it then if your such an attention whore.

Im happy with my old flip.I go to my gf parents house, here brother and step brother and sis are always on there stupid phone.Cant have a discussion anymore everybody is obsses by these darn things.You get run into in the grocerys because the guy is starring at is dam intelligent phone.And i aint talking about the asses texting while driving.A teen killed herself in Montreal she walked in the metro and fell between between two wagons because she was starring at that thing.You see kids biking and doing longboard starring at these things.Did i mention i hate inteligent phones and there user that cant get away from them more then two minutes.

I think the op really needed attention. Gratz on the score of the iphone 6.

Hope you have fun with it. Great pickup, at a good price......I guess.
