    Hi,

    I have $400 to spent via PayPal. I want to buy a iphone using PayPal but can't find any online sites that do this. No, I do not use Ebay so do not recommend this. Basically, I have $400 in my paypal which is hooked up to a CC. No bank account is set on it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions where I can buy a IPhone (With no plan - just the standard one) for $400 or so using PayPal? I mean....that or I buy a iPhone from someone which I dont want to do.

    Thanks.

    I take paypal

    Ebay is the only way to go in this case since I am not likely selling my phone anytime soon. (this is subject to change on a whim)

    (but when I do, it's gonna be a heck of a sale. Fully modded - every app, but never unlocked so a solid baseband and the option to upgrade without fear.... and no account ties, I use it as a PDA with no sim )

    That sucks. (I wonder why I can't see my first post...)

    Ebay uses CC, I don't like that. I have a account there with moms CC, but never use it as I dont want money being taken out of her acc.

    As far as I know, stores have to be authorxzied to sell iPods and iPhones.
    Your best bet would be out Buy/Sell/Trade forum.

    Yeah, we have that policy so people don't spam, and are more likely to be trustworthy. Go make a few more posts and then you can post there =D

    You dont always need a CC to buy on Ebay. I would take a check in certain circumstances but you are unlikky to find a 400 iPhone there.

    Oh, no? And why is that?

    Seriously, take another look at Ebay. You DO NOT always need a credit card to make purchases there. You're cutting out probably the largest seller of iPods/iPhones besides Apple themselves.

    Otherwise, Craigslist maybe, depending on where you are...I wish you good luck. $400 is gonna be tough.
