    I would buy as many as possible, and then resell them on eBay for 100 or even 300 or more profit. Hell a 30 dollar camera connection kit sold for 180 bucks not too long ago, you could make a killing on iPhones - IF you can get your hands on them and ESPECIALLY if they are unlocked (according to Numblock a lot of the carriers in Canada will be selling them unlocked, if you lived in Canada or near the border...)

    :D

    Not a bad idea, but you also have to take into consideration the ebay fees...

    They pale in comparison to how much you could mark those up though. Can't beat your first post agreeing with me! Hearty welcome to you!

    Yeah, but most of the phones on eBay are unlocked anyhow. So anyone buying one will already know they are paying full price. Anyone looking on eBay usually knows about unlocked phones.

    When they are backordered like 2-3 months, you could probably sell them for a grand. Even the 3GS is still going for 4-6 hundred right now.

    As another example, the Droid Incredible has been backordered pretty much since release day and some people are selling them for 7-9 hundred on eBay, and that's without nearly as much hype as the iPhone.

    I just ordered iPhone 4 for myself. It says it'll ship on July 14th. I was'nt due for upgrade yet, so I'll going to shell out $499, but hopefully can sell my 3gs for at least $300 to $400, so not bad. It's better then waiting for my AT&T upgrade date in 2011.

    But even if ebay fees don't matter, what about canceling at&t's service after u sell it? Isn't that like $300?

    If you buy them unlocked, there is no cancel fee because you aren't under contract.
