Du halts sales of pre-paid iPhone 4 packages

Du has said it has stopped the sales of pre-paid iPhone 4 packages in the UAE following an increase in cases of people unlocking the handsets and then selling them on the black-market, Gulf News has reported. "We have stopped the sale of iPhone4 on pre-paid lines in order to combat the sale of these smartphones on the black market, which is taking place as a result of certain individuals purchasing iPhone4 pre-paid packages from Du sales points for less than Dhs2100, and selling it abroad for a 50% to 80% profit," Farid Faraidooni, chief commercial officer, Du, told the daily.
