Well, I think the photo pretty much sums this up. The long version of the story is that my dad had an upgrade on AT&T. I am on Verizon. He stood in line for maybe an hour, was 30th and bought a 16 GB iPhone 6+ for $299. He emailed me photos of it and I listed it immediately on eBay as a 24 hour sale. It sold for $1,000. The fees were 10% for eBay and 2.9% for PayPal, so we ended up splitting just under $500. Not bad for a few hours of work.
Of interest to me and hopefully at least one other person
