BEWARE!

A lot of those phones on ebay are the chinese fake iPhone that is being sold. It is called iPhone but it is not an Apple iPhone. BEWARE!

It is a real phone, there is no doubt about it. However ebay is an auction. That auction has 2days left, it will go for more then that.

Come on now people!

Yep they look Real .... but also remember if you buy from ebay no warranty
and i do think the price will rise also ... it up to you as it your money
if a warranty is not important and you save a few bucks ... choice is yours

warranty is valid only if you buy from AT&T or Apple must have org receipt

Good luck on what ever you deside on.

ask the seller if you are the winner if he can enclose a receipt as well, most have no problem doing so. If not, go to a local state farm agent (u will have to call around). I had to call 11 agents last Mon but finally got a policy for 30 dollars with 0 deductible for 1 yr of coverage. Includes theft, lost, accidental damage, etc. For the record, I don't have any other policies through them as my car insurance is through my company and homeowners insurance is through someone else. Just a thought. MOST, not all, people are legitimate sellers just trying to make some cash. Someone with that high of feedback isn't out to scam you. But I can assure you that auction will jump in the last 6 hrs.

Save up another 150 bucks and some change and go to the store and buy one!

Simple as that! (oh wait, then why the hell don't I have one yet!?)

Nevermind that...

lol

in my opinon i think its better to buy 1 off ebay cause i don't have 2 sign a 2 yr contract and i can get a coverage depending on when the iPhone sell bought his iPhone.

well do what you must do .. you don't sign a contract when you get it at Apple or AT&T you do get a warranty .... ebay you get a locked phone same as the store if you activate either one though iTunes you have a 2 year contract unless you go the pay as you go plan after failing the credit check

ask your self this you get it from ebay and it don't work or you have a problem in 2 weeks it dies where are you then ... it will be a paper weight on your desk at least if you get it from Apple or AT&T you can return it and get it replaced .

just my two cents .. :)

the only way out of a contract if you buy it form ebay or AT&T is go the pre paid way throu iTunes fail the credit ck .... or unlock with the software that is around the web and bi pass the iTunes activation they don't make you sign a contract to buy it its when you go to activate it . so you can bi pass the contract with eather phone ... i was just trying to point that out i used this http://iPhone.unlock.no/#applications on a pc and wifi to unlock mine no contract im on Cellular one witch AT&T bought out but the take over won't happen till after 1st of the year .
