Look, I have no idea whether this is legit or not, but you've got less than an hour to decide for yourself. Because, see, Dallas-based "Iphone Trendz" claims it's selling that hardest-to-find Christmas present: a single unlocked 8G iPhone "compatible with any GSM Wireless carrier in the world," which also contains "300 utilities, applications and themes." Two folks have already bid on the phone, pushing its price past the $500 mark (which is incredibly reasonable, all things considered). Me, I'm just pointing it out -- like I said, your call. --Robert Wilonsky
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
