    I don't know where you got the 99 dollar price tag from, it's $149 for the black, and the white both in 16GB, which is typical of Apple's refurb's being 50 bucks cheaper. So, this is slightly misleading.
    The article is a couple of days old now, and as you can see from our screenshot, it was $99 when written. So it looks like it may have been a black Friday sale, or something of that sort.

    Rather, thanks for the heads up and we will have an edit out shortly.

    Its not that Apple hired them at a price that they could not refuse, they could probably make more money in donations from jailbreaks, let alone charging people for their exploits if they really wanted to. I think what you meant is that Apple presented him(comex) with an opportunity he couldn't refuse.
    And what particular opportunity was that?

    And yes, thats probably the reason that they are having such a hard time to get a stable jailbreak out there.
    Other devs are being bought off my Apple. Rest assured.

    But they do have it jailbroken, I will also remind you that the 4S jailbreak wasnt released until Christmas time, so this time last year everybody was still waiting on a jailbreak.
    You missed my point... They do NOT have it 'jailbroken' yet. Only 'failbroken'. Not the same thing. By this time last year - they had it 'truly jailbroken' in early-November and were just finalizing the stable delivery system. We had the untethered jailbreak in mid December. The problem is that they have no 'true' jailbreak on even their phones yet which pushes final release well into the new year.

    I ordered my iPhone 5 by phone on Friday morning. At that time I'd asked on a delivery estimation and was happy to hear it would be 7-10 days.

    However, Saturday afternoon I'd received an email from AT&T confirming its shipment via FedEx, with an estimated delivery time of Monday afternoon.

    I'd received my iPhone by 1:30 this afternoon. It's in absolute pristine condition. Not a single scratch or scuff.
