Thread: White iPhone 4 Kits Bring Teen $130K & Threats

  1. #61
    Speaking fluent Mandarin is what helped him solidify this hustle. He was able to communicate to his supplier. He didn't do anything spectacular, but it was something that no one thought of. He cut out the middle man and went straight to the supplier and is making a helluva profit. Sounds a lot like the drug trade doesn't it?

    Good for him though. He is smart and a natural born hustler. That equals wealth

    If they are "authentic Apple parts" and Apple has not given the ok to sell them, they or stolen goods. In America, paying someone for stolen goods is still a crime. This could very well be Apple stock that was stolen by someone in China and sent to this kid. Again, still a crime. We don't know enough from this thread to be making judgments like "Apple is just bitter" etc, etc. This could very well be product that Apple paid to have manufactured and is being stolen under their noses...

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    They are not original. If you look in his terms and conditions page you will see
    Items on the site are sold as non-OEM parts.
    These are what we call grey market parts or counterfeits. He could face a legal suit from Apple regarding the sale of counterfeit goods and intellectual property infringement over the Apple logo.

    I'm sorry but we are not offering the conversions any longer. We were finding that some of the newer iPhone 4's were incompatible with the white parts. We were also having trouble sourcing the quality of parts that we require for our standards. Thanks for thinking of us though.

    I'm holding out for the Call of Duty Black Ops Edition Iphone4. I hear its going to come with a factory loaded IOS version of BlackOps that is playable online over 3G and WiFi (not as part of the playstation network).

    Just another pr thing to boost his sales. It is silly to pay that much for a case.

    lol, admit it, that's funny right there.
    It's not where you've been, or where you're going..
    It's where you are.
    Reflect on the past, plan for the future, mod for today.

    Wow, good for him! He had a unique opportunity and he took it, that's great.

    Personally I don't see why someone would spend all that money just to get a white iPhone. Or want to risk breaking their device by taking it apart.

    But then, I'm out of the loop when it comes to phone fashion statements -- I buy a phone based on price and features, not what others think of me.

    good for him..

    maybe if apple made the white iPhone 4 a priority they wouldnt be in this situation

    Yeah legit, right off the back of a truck! The site says "temporarily unavailable". What does that tell you. Our company runs a LEGIT business, buying and selling all types of IT stuff. We heard of these some time back and were warned they were "hot" stuff. We'd lose our licensing agreements and our credibility if we handled this stuff. Anyone who thinks this is "good for him" or "up you Apple" should ask themselves, would you buy a blueray player from a guy in a bar? Legit businesses like ours would go broke if this kind of "selling" was wide spread. We pay a premium to sell legit items and deal with top line companies. So we should just forget the law and sell anything stolen or counterfeit??? These items are believed to be rejected production runs and were supposed to be destroyed by Foxconn. That makes them stolen.

    Support legit businesses and buy legal products!! It is black and white. This kid should be charged for handling stolen goods or selling counterfeit items. Simple!!!!!

    I have been converting them here in NY too. People used to see one I had out and asked how I got the white iphone 4 and I told them I swap them. They bring me $300 and their iPhone and in a day they have a white iPhone 4.

    Only thing that prevented me from going to big with it was the worry of spotty digitizers because my known good source that I got the parts from stopped getting inventory.

    We know this, but if he didn't know, he did nothing illegal, the only bad thing for him would be he would have to stop and return the stuff
