    I got a 64 grey on launch day for $A1128 by putting pressure on my phone carrier to sell me a handset they had in stock by purchasing outright -there policy is only to sell them with plans. So laughing really that I got it on the day with a small discount even lol. Saw idiots listing them on eBay within an hour of launch. One dipstick was trying to make out he somehow went to the store lined up amongst however many (avg is 100+) and bought the wrong colour for his wife, but conv his listing was for $1500 on eBay lol!

    You honestly think Sprint is paying $500!!! Do you seriously think the cost of that phone is $800?! That's what the carrier charges you. You paid $299 for the phone, which only costs about $95 to make...the carriers aren't paying $800 per phone from Apple...lol. They'd all be out of business. If you buy that phone outright without a contract for $799, they're putting probably $600 in their pocket- so they still made $100 off of you, if you paid $300....now, figure that for every customer they have...it's a sick profit. I'm sure my numbers are off a little, but it's in that ballpark. They charge that insane price, because they can. Demand.

    It is a Buy It Now, I can assure no one is going to buy it. The seller is just trying his luck.

    Wow good for you. That's just so cool. Smh

    That's awesome for the people selling them! Stupid for the people actually paying that much money to get "happiness" right now instead of waiting a few weeks and paying normal price. I guess this is what Apple wanted by limiting supplies!

    You don't get the phone market. Apple doesn't discount iphones sold through carriers. Have you paid attention to any of the stories about how carriers hate iPhones because of their cost? The carriers do pay that price and they make it back with upgrade fees and high plan costs.

    Good for you, you are obviously a Sepo. No Best Buy here and no $99 iPhones either.

    I was there on launch and the moment an Apple staff mentioned that the Gold version in sizes 16 and 32GB were non existent
    and that they only had half a dozen in the 64GB in Gold. I quickly asked for a Black and Gold in 64GB knowing i would get $1800.00 for the gold one on eBay. It turned out that I was right.

    Lol... All you guys are making me laugh! Apple pays less then $200 to make these phones, and how much do they retail for? Some markup huh? Apple's been raping all you guys for years. They didn't become one of the worlds richest companies by being nice! Bunch of jealous fanboys in here.

    Wow! I live in lebanon and iphones 5s shipments will start getting here by the end of the month, max. Mid october. The wait is definitely no worth 2000 bucks

    Edit: sorry meant to say mid november.

    It isn't "going for" that much unless there are bids or purchases, none of which have been indicated in that listing pic.
