    There are a handful of guys in my area SF/Bayarea buying up as many iphones as they possible can get their hands on. They buy anywhere from $75-$140 for iphone 3GS 16GB and more for newer phones.

    My immediate guess is eBay of course, but i'm thinking there must be another goldmine.

    Anybody know?

    I'd say your first guess is the best option... ebay

    Definitely eBay. The margins probably aren't that big though. It's also possible they are running their own retail business and selling them for even more than eBay. They could also be selling in bulk to retail stores.

    Hmmm....i hadn't considered this, possibly. Still, I think they are being sold via some underground network out of the country (maybe i'm just fantasizing..lol)


    Think i'll just approach some of the buyers on CL and see if I can get an answer

    I'm pretty sure they just re-list them on craigslist. A lot of people do it with craigslist. You just have to find someone that really needs the money and make them a low offer. You can make a lot of money doing it. Apple products are the easiest to do.

    If you buy 30 phones a week and sell them for $50 more, you're making 6k a month in cash.

    Damn, I was almost ready to quit IMing until it occurred to me that 30 by 50 can t be 6k. Come on

    30X50 = 1500

    ......Sorry men, I miss that week part. you are right.
    But 30/week is kinda high if you dont own a store, even some store wouldnt make that much sales of iPhone per week. I guess some black hatters are in CL iphone trade too.

    30 a week x 4 weeks = 120 a month x $50= $6000

    I buy the iPhone 4S and 4 for AT&T and Verizon. If you can get these for cheap, pm me or skype me at RazTech786. Any condition. Good way to supplement your income if your getting this product and need a quick turn around on your cash.
