    Ok I needed to share this. I was on eBay looking for case options for my new air. I so hope no one buys this.

    Not surprising. My local CL has iPhone 5S boxes for 20-100 bucks.

    They are clearly hoping some ***** doesn't see box only and says wow $299 for a new iPad! Let me buy it now quick! Lol

    Yessir, but the idiots will be the ones who bid on it... especially the one who wins the auction and is then upset that he bought an empty box.

    Well, selling it today is pointless. But maybe if you throw yours away and want to sell in the future it could help get a few extra bucks for your used iPad, I wouldn't pay more than $5 though.

    I did just that. Earlier this year I was trying to sell my iPhone 5 but no longer had the box. Just about every person who responded to my ad asked if I had the original box and either bailed or offered me far less than I was asking. I found someone on CL selling their box for 5 bucks and bought it. I revised the ad with the included box and it sold that very same day. Every iPhone I have sold here in PDX on CL has been to a guy who was going to be selling it to someone overseas.

    Every iPhone I have ever sold was too either a phillipeno or a Chinese guy that wanted to send them back as gifts to home. Every single time

    That's hilarious. Glad to see the trend happens all over North America not just here

    Isn't the iPhone sold in China now? Why do they need to buy here and send it back overseas anymore?

    Because people there can't afford them as easily as their relatives working up here, and there aren't as many "second hand" ones floating around everywhere
