    You guys forgot to check the completed listings. Yes there are iPhones going for $1800 on eBay but nobody is actually buying them. If you look up the completed listings for the same model you’ll see that they are ranging from $1000-$1650

    The iPhone in this article’s picture looks like it’s running the Notes app from iOS6. The GUI of it also looks like iOS6. It doesn’t look like it’s running iOS7. Is that strange?

    Apple failed miserably with this launch, if you’re going to introduce a new product it should be available. It’s sad that even your own store has such limited supply. They should’ve post-phoned launch until they had their supply levels up.

    Why? Thats like buying 20 bags or groceries for a 3 person family. If you build it, they will come. Now it will be backed up til Christmas. Why spend money until you have to?

    The iPhone with Notes up is a white iPhone5. You can tell by the home button. Good spot. Must be sellers personal iPhone. Probably wants to keep the 5S sealed to keep value high.

    If a gold iPhone is that important all you has to do is get a iPhone 5, take it to Anostyle, and have it made in gold color for $250. It’s on my wish list but I’m waiting for a coupon. Personally, I think gold on black is much more attractive, and if you want, you can get red on black which is also pretty striking.
