    Should I pre-order the Iphone 5 tomorrow to sell on launch day on ebay? Usually how the iphones work is your pre-order or camp out on launch day. If you do not do this it usually takes weeks to months to just walk into an Apple or Verizon store to get your hands on one easily. So if I pre order and receive on launch day and throw it up on Ebay do think I'll get good money for it maybe a grand? Cost what like 700 to preorder.

    Well I say if you have the mo-ney to do it you cant possibly lose mon-ey, so why not? Or if you would like one yourself bu-y 3-4 of them and just keep one for yourself and sell the other 2/3. You just got a fre-e iPhone 5!

    I apologize for all the "-" in between words but the system thinks im trying to sell something and wont let me post it

    well at first it was a big disappointment for me but the more information thats coming out now and more we looked at specs... it seems pretty good... design though is a little bit improved though down similar lines to 4s...
    i would be buying couple Iphone 5s though.... last year they went for upto £1000 on ebay and Gumtree on Launch day... so worth a shot... even if we get £100 on top of the original price its still worth it...

    Definitely worth a shot, and if it doesn't work out - you have a new iPhone 5 ;)

    I think design wise, it's boring. Hard ware wise, its pretty impressive, although everyone did have HUGE expectations.

    Anyone have experience pre-ordering one. Do they let you pre-order multiples or only one?

    The worst case scenario is if you are unable to sell it you can return it to the shop in original packaging for a full refund.

    Not got anything to lose by giving it a shot!
