Re: Why are REAL pics so hard to take?!?!

And he really doesn't like to do that since it is a work phone.

I have never posted stock photos, but I DO regularly post an amazon.com link to the item so buyers can see what it looks like new and what I paid for the item new. It is NOT me being shady or deceitful. I am trying to be helpful to those who might be unfamiliar with the item or brand.

I trust buyers will see my positive feedback and trust my honesty about items, and take it up with me later if they don't like what I have sold them. I have been selling online since 2006 and never once posted a picture in a thread, and have 100% positive feedback.
I don't know, that not really an excuse, if you want to sell. It's just not. I'm glad you've been able to find buyers, but I guarantee you'd hit a bigger market, Here at least, with photos. You can get a camera for 25 bucks and even in the smallest rural town ived lived in had a library with computers. Upload to a server like Dropbox, box, or photobucket, and your iPad can pull them from the app.
IMO, if you can't be bothered to take photos, sell on Craigslist.
