For some reason, it somehow seems slightly more legit than the previous one mentioned on the forum. Obviously, I could be EXTREMELY wrong.

Has anyone tried asking the seller a question, like when will they be available? I know in the description it states Exp. June 30, but just wondering if anyone has tried to get more in depth details from seller, if he even has any. I agree with jay-dee though, its just like with the PS3 or any other hot item set to come out. People will set up an auction for pre-orders then they will go to the store or order online the day the items drop, then ship those phones to the buyers. From this seller's listing, he will almost be doubling his money, that is if the non-contract price is between 500-600. On the side of the page, it says 5 have already been purchased.

Who's gonna pay $1025 for this phone? Ow, well, I've seen people pay $900 for a pre-released 9780.Proud owner of:

Yeah, I'm a CoD gamer. So what?
So the guy replied back with "It will be delivered and shipped as per our listing specifications. Thank you!"
Not sure what that means.

Money is not unlimited for me but I have paid well over $1k for a pre released phone and would do it again. Neither of these two sellers have these phones in their hand to sell. Up to "30 days for shipping".

Doesn't matter if money is no object. If I pay $1000 today for a device that's not out yet, and can walk into a store on release day and pay half that, how is that not stupid? Just for bragging rights? They won't get it any sooner than the rest of us. If I were the buyer, I would feel REALLY stupid if, say, I'm sitting in a meeting the day after release and a few people there have the new bold, paid retail, and I don't even have mine yet and shelled out double? If the seller actually had the device and could deliver before full release, pay what you want, but paying double to get it at the same time as everyone else is stupid. Ok, maybe I'll change the word stupid to foolish. Stupid does sound harsh....
It's your money, and you're free to spend it however you want of course. This is all just my own opinion, so sorry if I stated as fact. I really just can't see anyone actually spending this kind of money on a device they can't get before anyone else.

I mean you aren't the one being stupid, obviously you have enough common sense not to fork out that kind of money (for what is in my eyes is a "scam" whatever way you look at it) just be happy that you didn't buy it and just laugh at those who did.Hi, I'm Alex Bass - Website Designer, App Developer & Owner of CyberBytes Inc.
