Who cares if it`s stolen or not, no phone is worth what they sell for in the first place, Apple has made trillions of dollars, how much money do they need?

IMO the value of an iPhone when it`s working properly is in the neighborhood of fifty bucks. Subtract the time it would take to hack one and $13 a pop is quite reasonable.

40 iPhones for 320 pounds? That`s about $13 a pop. Hmm... not too bad. I guess I`d buy one, if it was legit. ;-)

The fact that this made it on IAB means someone did a good job in the viral marketing department. This looks like more than an ad then anything, good job sheep.

If these are stolen it`s not likely you will be able to get them activated. Apple tracks all their phone`s serial numbers and knows which stores got which phones. If they were reported stolen, those serial numbers will be on a watchlist and they will immediately repossess their stolen merchandise and likely call the police on whomever tries to activate them.

No, YOU`VE got it all wrong.

It`s pillage, burn, then rape.

The fire light makes it much more romantic. You have to do SOMETHING for the ladies.

Why are they stole? maybe he found 40 iPhones at his friends house who recently passed away, and is looking for compensation for all the money his friend with a gambling addiction owed him...

1) Apple doesn`t sell their iPhone through any unlicensed vendor...only through wireless carriers.
2) When the phone is purchased, it is activated on site by the vendor, else it is a very expense rock.
3) The warranty would be through the vendor, not Apple.

That is the procedure in the USA. However as Europe and Asia work differently. In Japan you can go to a vending machine and pay for a phone with a credit card and then activate and get minutes with a credit card once you dial in to the service.

I believe Europe has a similar system. As far as cell service through dealers. The USA is getting the f*** job.

NOT TRUE. When you receive via mail, the phone is not activated - whether a new phone or a replacement. You activate it yourself.

A claim that you gave at least £10,000 in cash to a stranger down the pub for some phones is a bit implausible.

If they were purchased, there would be some proof of purchase. If not with them, then with the company they bought the phones from. Or with their bank.

The police are also browsing Craigslist (and Ebay, Facebook, etc, etc). They are making visits to ask questions.

If the seller is legit, they`ll have some proof of purchase.
