Apple has begun limiting sales of its popular iPhone to two per customer and no longer accepts cash for payment.
We’re requiring a credit or debit card for payment to discourage unauthorized resellers,said Apple spokesperson Natalie Kerris, calling the demand for the iPhone "off the charts." The previous limit was five iPhones per person, which tempted hackers to buy in quantity to resell or unlock them from their intended use with AT&T Mobility. This precaution is intended to lower the sale rate of phones, bought to be unlocked. The new restrictions are also aimed at ensuring enough iPhones for increased holiday sales. The iPhone will soon launch in Germany, the United Kingdom and France. Source: United Press International
