An eBay iPhone 3G Might Not Be Your Most Intelligent Purchase Ever

Illustration for article titled An eBay iPhone 3G Might Not Be Your Most Intelligent Purchase Ever

A few things to keep in mind before bidding on an iPhone 3G from eBay:

1. You can no longer buy an unactivated iPhone.

2. The biggest iPhone will only run you $299 (half of $600 going rate).

3. Eventually, even your grandma will have an iPhone, and that means you will have paid over $600 to have the same phone as your grandma. Remember the RAZR and the Macarena, people! [eBay]

DISCUSSION

iPhone Haters:

Comparing the iPhone to any product, even one that was wildly popular, is probably not going to make you many friends. Remember, Steve brainwashed us into believing that there is absolutely no product like the iPhone. No matter what product you pick, even another Apple one, you are insulting us. We would prefer you moved straight to name-calling instead. It will save us all some time.

Thank you for your attention.
