In Texas something typical to do is to go out on weekends and hit the yard sales on the side of the back roads. In October thousands of yard sales and vendors' booths extend 364 miles from Mesquite, Texas, just east of Dallas, to East Vicksburg, Mississippi in the U.S. 80 Hi-Way Sale. Sometimes you find some really good buys but I found something so interesting that I had to take a picture. I stopped at a small booth from a larger well known pawn shop chain and the owner was selling an iPhone 3GS. Nothing spectacular about it but when I tried to turn it on he said the battery was dead and didn't have the charger. I went and got my charger from my truck and left it charging for about 15 minutes until it turned on. I saw that it was disabled and the guy said he could unlock it and start pushing volume buttons then home plus power, then he would press the volume switch while toggling the vibrate switch ! It was hilarious what the guy was doing trying to make me believe that he knew what he was doing. He finally told me he forgot how to do it but he would sell it to me cheap and I could get how to do it on the 'net. I said thanks but I'll have to think about it. I had never seen this happen to an iPhone and I really didn't have the time to wait for it to expire so I could use it.
