    Even though I'm definitely an Android fanboy I try not to be an Apple basher. But I'm sure you can find a couple of my posts that straddle the thin line between advice and preaching when it comes to Apple products.

    That being said, I just saw this Craigslist post that warmed my heart. Poor guy didn't last 8 hours with his new iPhone:
    So if you want, send him an email welcoming him back to the Android army.

    Can he not return it to whoever bought it? Assuming it was from a store... brand new.

    Or he's trying to gun for the money.

    If he bought it on contract, it cost him $200. If he can sell it for $700 (I'm skeptical about that, but you never know), he then can buy a new Android device (on a contract) for approximately $200 while making a $300 profit.

    Or he bought it off contract and is just trying to recoup the money. I just doubt anyone is going to pay full retail for a used phone. Might as well get it from the store at that point. But, even then, he can trade it back.

    Yea but if you end a contract early don't you have to pay a huge sum?

    That's great!

    Yeah, it looks like he's trying to bilk someone for profit. I don't know the circumstances, I only read the ad. It's been removed as of this post, but I did see 2 iPhones for Sprint for $850 and $1000. I hope people aren't paying that much for phones. I understand staying off contract, but that's ridiculous.
