Apple stops company from selling kits

Apple lovers can’t wait till the new iPhone5 comes out. They’re expecting to sell over 10 million in the first week. You may of already seen sneak peeks of what it will look like, but one online company went as far as selling a kit to make their iPhone 4/4S models look like the iPhone 5.
iPhone5mod.com, a China-based site selling iPhone 5 mod kits,  was sent a cease and desist letter saying, iPhone5mod.com is selling "counterfeit Apple merchandise.”

The company posted the following on their site, "We are sorry to announce that we have received a warning letter from some company who so-called authorized by Apple asking us to pull down the iPhone 5 Mod.” "In order to prevent further troubles we will stop selling the iPhone 5 Mod within next 48 hours. Customers who have already ordered, we will still ship out your order on time and will only debit/capture your payment upon ship out. New customers who want to order, please order within the next 48 hours, we will process your order accordingly."

Its product description on the mod explains that the kit is based on "leaked" iPhone 5 designs and is available for a limited time.

We also have very good relationships with our vendors and our products are tested before we carry anything new. Shop with confidence, shop 3gstore!
