iPhone 4 For Sale

This iPhone is now sold. Thanks for all your interest! ========================================= I am selling my mint condition 32 GB black iPhone 4.  The phone is for the Bell Mobility network. I'm keeping my contract with Bell, but I've upgraded to a new phone and don't need this one anymore.  It comes with the original box, also in mint condition, with all original accessories (AC adapter, sync cable, earbuds [unused]).

Scotia Bank, for the resources you have available to you, you should be embarrassed by this. Really, how much extra would it have cost to supply a few extra web servers and rent some extra bandwidth?
