What's the deal here? Pink 500 sells for $69.69 on ebay
« on: February 08, 2012, 09:18:19 AM »
Pink 500

What am I missing?  It's not even soft plastic.  The best thing about this phone is that the seller is less than 10 miles from me ;)

Final Selling Price $69.69

Maybe they forgot to mention that it was the phone in Jackie Kennedy's hotel room the weekend of November 22, 1963 in Dallas!  :D

Maybe it's a gift for Valentine's Day that forced the bidding up?

And, it was only pink. If it were red, it would have gone for twice as much.  ::)

Given how close Valentines day is, I can't help but wonder if the end price was planned or just an unfortunate coincidence.... :o

Perhaps it would be a good time for me to sell my pink phones.  One is soft plastic, and the other is a mushroom.

Give you 10 bucks for the mushroom.  Heck I'll even pay shipping!

That is very generous of you, but I would hate to take your money.  The shipping charge of $1200.00 is probably out of your budget ;D
