XTC Chip in the US
Wondering who would be interested in going in on buying an XTC chip and passing it around in the US.
Here's what I propose...
ONE of us in the states purchases one, and we subsequently pass it around to those who want to go in on it. I would propose that we pool resources together and purchase one through ebay (there's a NY seller that has one for a little less than $200 US. I'd be comfortable buying it and passing it along to someone else in the states... I would say we get a list of people together, where's they're located, and how much they are willing to put in to a general fund to purchase (or offset the cost of) the XTC chip. Let's see if we can get a nice long list going, and I'll look at buying on Monday or Tuesday (May 2 or 3 2011)... I live in Baltimore, so anyone in neighboring states or nearby could meet up or i could mail it to them and they'd have it in a day or 2... (Im not sure the exact weight, but each person going in would pay for shipping to the next in line to receive it.. Im assuming we could ship it for under $2 to each person, as i doubt it weighs more than a few ounces and would fall under the 13oz rule for USPS first class mail)...
If we can get a list of where everyone is, how much they'd be willing to contribute, we can maybe map out a path for this thing... (I would say, the larger contributors would have first dibs on it, and those who are closest in proximity with where it is...ie, if i order it and get it next friday, and someone offsets in NY with $5, but someone in VA offsets with $25, I would ship it to the person in VA... They in turn would ship it to the NY person, and so on and so forth...
If you are unable to offset... you probably shouldnt have bought a $500 phone
No, but in seriousness... if you are unable to contribute, I (personally, but would need general consensus from those who HAVE contributed)... would be more than willing to pass this on to those who HAVENT contributed to the cause (of course, as is only right... i would say you would be last in line to receive it...)
That being said... any input?
