iPhone Out of Stock at all NYC Apple Stores
We have now moved our security level to defcon 5 – the highest level. Huffington Post is reporting that ALL NYC Apple stores are out of iPhones. Let’s remain calm, do NOT call 911. If you need to make a call and you were expecting to use a new iPhone to do it, just use a payphone. Shelters have been setup around the city to help those who are without their new gadget. Greyhound reports a special "Apple bus" leaving Port Authority at 7pm to a location that has iPhones in stock.
Apparently the AT&T stores around the city still have quantities of iPhones available for sale but if you are smart you will get there quick before the eBay looters get there and jack up the price again. I’ve got a guy down in Chelsea who has a few iPhones and will let one go for $850 cash.
Semi-interesting story – three weeks ago I was in the 14st store when a large tour bus pulled up in front. About 100 Asian people got off the phone led by a woman with a microphone. Each person got in the checkout line, purchased gift cards and then each one purchased five iPhones. I counted about 400 iPhones left the store in under one hour. So if you want to buy an iPhone for cash, just buy a gift card first.
