Do you just randomly search for old threads, resurrect them, and expect a continuation of the discussion after 3 months?

Yes. Simple, direct and to the point. Also succinct and straightforward. Not to mention honest, plain-spoken, forthright, no-nonsense and matter-of-fact. Blunt even. This poster was not afraid to call a spade a spade and was very frank and candid about it.

As I remember it, no retailer in the States can refuse a sale for legal tender. Just not allowed. Am I wrong? Have the laws changed?

And we're supposed to put up with "no, you're Canadian"?

Please.

It's worth a putting up a stink.
The reason for it is because when Apple sells a phone that doesn't go on a carrier that Apple has a sales agreement with (ATT,O2,ect) they lose out on alot of money.

Apple doesn't care about getting awesome iphones into the hands of as many people as possible, but it cares to sell as many iphones that are used on the networks it has agreements with to increase profits long term through the revenue sharing model it has setup.

So selling to a Canadian is a sure way to avoid those juicy profits from the carrier, because there is no Canadian carrier.
