Thread: Has this happened to anyone???

    Default Has this happened to anyone???
    Hi, I just got a few iphones from an Atlanta Apple Store - they asked for my ID before payment - went in the backroom and took a few minutes. When they came back they handed it back to me and rang up the sale. I asked why and they stated that some people are buying too many and reselling them (gulp)! Has this happened to anyone? Thanks!

    Apple has put the clamp on people buying too many devices at once. They don't want people reselling them, and if they do, Apple wants to force them to sign up for the Apple Reseller program. They could have very well refused to sell them to you.

    This is the email customers who have placed orders for more than 9 iPhones/iPods are receiving...

    Dear Apple Customer,

    Thank you for your interest in Apple products.

    It appears that your recent Apple Store order is for products intended
    for resale. While Apple appreciates your company's support of Apple's
    technology and products, the Apple Store you placed this order with
    sells products to end-user customers only, and the order has therefore
    been cancelled. You may wish to review the Sales and Refunds Policy at
    .

    For information about joining Apple as a reseller, visit
    .

    Thank you again for your interest in Apple.

    Sincerely,
    Apple Store Customer Support

    Its not from Ebay, some people go local. Look at this way, you can buy a phone, hack it and sell it hacked for a profit. That is what some people are doing with buying more than 10 phones. Apple doesn't like that.

    Dear Apple,

    It's none of your daum business how we spend our money and what we do with it once we have your product. Making a photocopy of our license with our SS number on it and crucial info without our permission will result in a lawsuit.

    ~signed, better not try that with me.

    Without your permission? What are they doing, lifting it out of your wallet, making a copy of it and then putting it back into your wallet without your knowledge?

    And who in hell is dumb enough to have their SS number on their ID? In case you didn't know, you can opt out of having your SSN on your driver's license. Read up on the national ID act that passed a while back, before you argue this point with me, Sir.

    lol nine iphone or more

    Also people resell to people who are not nearly computer savvy enough to jailbreak or unlock their phone themselves. Thats why people will pay extra as well, they don't realize how easy the iPhone is to hack and that it costs nothing at all to do. They jut want an iPhone with t mobile

    If you don't like Apples policy, you don't have to buy from them.
    =D
