    I would never buy something from someone on Craigslist unless I met them face to face. Sorry to hear you got ripped off.

    I'm a manager for at&t and I always hate to see this crap. Best thing I can tell us is buy you a gophone if you can stand not having an iPhone until the 21st of September... Or apple has an out of warranty service where they'll fix your phone if it's messed up. It's like $100 for a 3GS or $150 for a 4...

    That's the rumor. Apple is supposed to have a conference on September 12th regarding new products and the "rumor" is that the release date is September 21st...

    I'm always skeered to buy electronics used. With that said I'd been looking to buy a used Iphone to unlock so I could use on Straight Talk. But this is one of the things I was afraid would happen. I may just upgrade eventually. Damn contracts. :rolleyes:

    If I could afford that then I wouldn't be trying to go cheap with Straight Talk in the first place. :eek: :D
