16GB White iPhone 3G for Php30k at Auction.PH
Those looking for an earlier release of the iPhone 3G, there are tons of them now listed and available over at Auction.PH.
Warning: We cannot ascertain the legitimacy of this seller. This is likely a scam. Please do not transact..
The 16GB White is selling for Php30,000. Seller is located in Cebu City so shipping is not included (additional Php500-Php1,000).
I think a Php30k price is a fair price for the 16GB version. As indicated in the listing, they are AT&T units and still locked but I think any Globe SIM will be able to work with them. There are no wide available unlocking/jailbreak softwares yet for the iPhone 2.0 but I’m sure some group will release one soon.
Can’t say much about the seller because she just registered last July 16 and doesn’t have any historical records at Auction.PH yet. Still, this is a good enough lead to follow up.
Update: Based on feedback by “d00dz” in the comments, the listing seems to be not legit. Please take every precaution possible.
Update 2: The owner of the same number is also selling an 8GB iPhone at Buy&SellPlus (under the name shasha1985) for Php19k.
Update 3: As general advise, use an escrow service or do COD when transacting online.
