This person is obviously somewhat deluded...who would pay $3k for an iPhone? Any iPhone?







P.S. I put it here, as it really is a bit off-topic, as opposed to being a serious thread about iOS related stuff.

And know you can buy a brand new one, in New Zealand, from Apple for about $1200 from this Friday...

But some people on Trade Me will buy it, still thinking it is a bargain.

Just amazes me that there could be anyone so gullible as to think this is even worth more than a cursory glance.

it's a relist too, he had it on there last week for nearly $4000!

dozens of unanswered questions of course. I added it to watchlist so I could read them when the auction ended.

needless to say most were saying something along the lines of:

"you must be joking at that price"

Crikey! they were polite comments.
If I could be bothered commenting on his auction, I'd be calling him a knob.

somebody has put a bid in for $5999. Surely must be a joke bid.

although one question says:

1500nzd+ 3gs 32gb black 98% do you like to swap? chegitagam35 (0 )  7:54 pm, Mon 26 Jul

What do you mean by 98%? 8:00 pm, Mon 26 Jul


i install invsibible shield on iphone 3gs 32gb 98% means like new .. can i swap it and + 1500nzd? chegitagam35 (0 )  9:01 pm, Mon 26 Jul

I might agree to 1800 plus phone, but need to see it first. Let me know your contact info if you wish to proceed 9:16 pm, Mon 26 Jul

Perhaps I should advertise my auction as an "iPhone" too
http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=305950828

It's just as good at making phone calls as a locked US iPhone 4!
