What’s this? Brand-new and unlocked iPhone 3G handsets shipped to your door from China? Say it ain’t so!
We waited over 10 hours in line for the iPhone 3G last week, and all we got was a fully network-locked 16GB iPhone 3G that took several excruciating hours to activate. So, with Hong Kong’s Alibaba Wholesale pushing fully unlocked iPhone 3G handsets through parent company Union Camera Ltd., we’re feeling a bit of buyer’s remorse.
The mobile electronics retailer is offering brand-new, unlocked iPhone 3G handsets in 8GB and 16GB trim. But, with Alibaba requiring a $1,000 USD minimum purchase order, that tinge of buyer’s remorse we were feeling is starting to fade. Still, iPhone 3G hopefuls looking to pay a premium for an unlocked handset might find this deal attractive.
We’re not sure how these guys managed to get their brand-new iPhone 3G’s unlocked already, but anyone looking to find out just how legit this offer really is can put in an order through Alibaba’s online store-front.
Drop us a line if you decide to take the plunge.
