As long as you implement a lost or stolen blacklist check and an imei carrier check for foreign iPhones,Craigslist kicks ass.Buy a 4S or a 5 for $130- 225,unlock for 2.50 and resell overseas for $260-450.Easy to make 23-30k a year part time.Apple,AT&T or tmobile will never beat that,and Apple can't do shit about it.Plus their exchange program makes it possible to buy a bricked 4S or 5,take it to an Apple store and for $100-175 you walk away with a new one...

The bulk of the iPhones are sold outside of apple stores for 2 reasons. 1. That's how apple STARTED selling iPhones. 2. People don't want to pay full price all at once. Resellers like AT&T subsidize the phones so customers pay over time. If apple offered a payment plan ( not another credit card ) like t-mobile, they charge $20 up front and $20 per month with no interest. Apple could even charge interest, with $50 down and $20 per month phones would STAY out of stock.

Want more sales, defeat the competition and make better product, you don't need to cheat or deceive people. Can't believe what I read.

How are they deceiving people?

it's a strong word I know, just related to the strong marketing policy, I am an apple fan, by the way. wanted just to emphasize that, apple didn't have to push sales at apple stores until last years, if they keep making the best product, they don't need to worry about the sales.

Mmm, right. If you change policy of "We are currently out of stock of unlocked iPhones. Please come back tomorrow and check." things might actually change. At least say we will have it then and then. Treating people like idiots and make them come every day to "check" and only to hear the same story is such an old story, Apple.

Steve Jobs wouldn't have done this. Tim Cook is clueless.

Why try to hunt down an unlocked iPhone? Buy an AT&T iPhone and then unlock it for $5 yourself, no technical knowledge needed. Check out this unlocking source: http://onemanwireless.com Submit your IMEI and it will be officially and permanently unlocked in just 2-4 hours. Enjoy!

Why? Because world does not equal US. In the same way, not all people of the world live in the US. You Americans might find that surprising but if you try it hard, you can understand the concept. I have faith in you :-) I don't want to be tied to a contract and do not want to buy a phone on the black/gray market because I need a receipt for my company. So Apple store is pretty much the only option here in Europe. For an iPhone that is. There are plenty of high quality Androids/WPs nowadays that can be bought in stores without being treated like a 12 yo kid that thinks, breathes and dreams "iPhone" and can't wait to be back to the apple store tomorrow to ask "Did you get it?" :-)

I'd happily trade-in two SoftBank iPhone 4 units in clean condition plus some small cash for a contract-free iPhone 5s here in Japan in September! I am tired of SoftBank having most of Japan by the balls with its locked iPhones.

Has nothing to do with it retard. They're getting ready for their new products. Just like any company does.
