    Guys, this is absolute bullshit. I can't believe how desperate you guys are for drama that you don't even bother questioning a completely unsubstantiated claim.

    Question: Why the hell would Apple give a shit if you're buying iPhones just to turn around and sell them? They don't. In fact, they're not against you unlocking them either, they're just telling you not to expect a warranty.

    Hi from a new member, just to concur with what Kaegan said.
    I bought a new Iphone on the 21st at an Apple Store in the mall with cash, and the process went with no problem at all (I was ready to argue, after reading this thread, but no need to).

    I always thought that retail stores by law had to accept cash. However on a quick google search I was wrong. Below is the full exerpt from the US Treasury:

    thought that United States currency was legal tender for all debts. Some businesses or governmental agencies say that they will only accept checks, money orders or credit cards as payment, and others will only accept currency notes in denominations of $20 or smaller. Isn't this illegal?

    The pertinent portion of law that applies to your question is the Coinage Act of 1965, specifically Section 31 U.S.C. 5103, entitled "Legal tender," which states: "United States coins and currency (including Federal reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal reserve banks and national banks) are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues."

    This statute means that all United States money as identified above are a valid and legal offer of payment for debts when tendered to a creditor. There is, however, no Federal statute mandating that a private business, a person or an organization must accept currency or coins as for payment for goods and/or services. Private businesses are free to develop their own policies on whether or not to accept cash unless there is a State law which says otherwise. For example, a bus line may prohibit payment of fares in pennies or dollar bills. In addition, movie theaters, convenience stores and gas stations may refuse to accept large denomination currency (usually notes above $20) as a matter of policy.

    How about using Virtual Credit Card numbers in some way? Of course you cannot do that in the store, but maybe online.

    Quote from Citibank:
    With this free service for Citi cardmembers, you never have to give out your real credit card number when shopping online. Instead, a substitute credit card number is generated to take the place of your real account number. Every purchase you make with Virtual Account Numbers will appear on your monthly statement, just like any other transaction. Itís the safe way to shop online.


    Maybe one can make use of this online?
