Surely you, as a retail representative, have experienced potential clients/buyers that have displayed a disdain for mac users due to a largely unfounded preconceived opinion of us, based on the minority that make such elitist comments. I've had people in airports tell me off for using a mac....of course, its different now...now they want to see how it works.

No harm meant at all. I totally have no idea how people can sell codes for half their retail costs. I assumed it was due to their volume. I wouldn't know where to begin faking a prepaid iTunes code. It never crossed my mind. I'm just a kind innocent NLer that assumes people are honest

I find it interesting that this thread was headed by an ad for an iPhone Unlocking website when I visited it. I know the ads are provided by Google, but still...

Cerebrus - I hadn't even noticed that, but at the same time, there is nothing illegal about unlocking an iPhone. There is actually legislation stating cell phone service providers must allow unlocking their phones for use on other carriers. A great example for how this is useful is for traveling abroad. Its much cheaper to unlock your phone and get a local SIM card than it is to pay roaming charges.

ehMax -- valid point and request. Wish more forum owners and moderators took your method than the heavy handed approach to dealing with such issues.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Mac users aren't elitist. They are intelligent people making an informed decion that is best for them.

If ehMax was concerned about losing business at Carbon Computing, don't you think he'd ban the sale of hardware? This policy recognizes the fact that super deals on activation codes for these products are most likely due to some type of fraud. You can argue with this, but if this was not the case, why can't massive volume retailers such as Amazon and Walmart not sell these products at any more than 5-10% off face value? If they could make money, they would.
