Re: So basically if my iphone 5 breaks or messes up
I'm sure they will sell quite a few over the long term, but I was with a friend who bought a 5c (from Best Buy) over the weekend and he was explicitly told by the sales person that his was the only one anyone in the entire store had ever sold. Same story at all the other stores we went to (he was hunting for a 5s initially) - every single store was sold out of the 5s, and had tons of the 5c, none of which were selling at all.
