Discuss Time to take out the Trash at the General - Hackint0sh.org; Any one in a different country want me to order them an iPhone from apple.com? ...
It this not the same as a pre-order from a store? You pay a down payment from $10 dollars to full value and get nothing in return for months and months. When the product is released, you get the product by paying off the rest of the balance or free, depending on how much you put as down payment.
Any one in a different country want me to order them an iPhone from apple.com? just send me $699 and i'll do it for you. If I can get 50 people, I will order them. I won't take your money, just put it in my Paypal account as pending, when I get 50 orders, I'll take the money and order the phones.
The way IPSF does business, they must be paid before they distribute their products to the reseller. At a store, this is completely different. The store , in many cases, gets the product and what it sells is paid to the manufacturer (e.g. IPSF). So in this case, Trash must have the cash in full before ordering.
Pre-orders, which is what Trash is doing, is for people who care about being first in line. If you don't, then don't order from Trash and wait until other resellers have it for less. He's not the only reseller around, just the first to have it.
So before you trash Trash about his business practices, go protest Wal-Mart or EBGames or something else worthwhile. He's providing an optional service which you don't need to take part in.

yea he is not risking... so what, without his help i will never obtain the lisence, im giving 25 dls with big pleassure to him... i give the dev team 100 and never get an unlock ( i got a lot of things bot not an unlock) so, TX TRASH! i think im included in the second bulk please hurry up!! i cant wait to use it...
I knew someone was going to focus on that. Geez. You missed every point here. This is NOT the place for Trash to conduct his business affairs.
I am not saying that Trash shouldn't so what he's doing, why is he allowed to use hackint0sh as his business' support board?
Trash also took the risk of:
* users not going through with orders.
* getting users to trust him with their money.
* paypal/credit card fraud.
* Wire fraud.
You can whine all you want, but IPSF set this up for RESELLERS....
If you don't like resellers, don't buy IPSF. Simple as that.
Don't go around bashing Trash for jumping on it and buying in bulk so users can get their individual licenses.
Send me $1800 via Wire, and I'll send it back... Will you do it? There is no risk, come on... I'll send it back... I dare ya!
Trash (and all the other IPSF resellers) DID take a VERY big risk. They have to send IPSF some rather big bucks before they get the goods.
If it was their own big bucks they sent IPSF and the unlock does not come through, then they bit the big one and are out the money... stupid tax paid in full.
If they took other people's money in advance and sent it to IPSF and the unlock does not come though then they bit an even bigger one. They will have to either come up with the money to repay their customers or they will wind up spending the next 10 years worrying about bending over in the shower.
I focused on it because your last three posts pertained only to his business practices?
As for the forum issue, I don't have much of an opinion. Sucks that he's draining Hackintosh bandwidth, but catering primarily to the Hackintosh community, maybe he 's entitled to? And look at everyone else starting new pools. Its the same concept at Trash's business, but smaller in scale.
People not only believe what they want, they read what they want.
I don't care what trash sells or his level of risk or whatever, just want to know why this site is his support forum.
Why can't Sasha get his own board?
This is a board started by the dev team to talk about hacking the iPhone, not for someone to conduct day-to-day business.
It was totally cool for him to be posting here while everyone was super critical if it was real or not. Ok, it's real. Now go get your own forum board.
Kid, don't you get it? He started the offer here. Almost all the buyers are here.

This is the GENERAL forum, this isn't the DEV forum you are posting in.
Oh My God!

And you totally neglect the point THAT IS WHAT TRASH HAD TO DO.

He had to send $1800+ while everyone is running around yelling it is a scam! You aren't thinking this through all the way.
And even more to Trashes favor is he didn't demand Payment before verified Product... Thus again offsetting even more of your risk to him.
