Australian Buyers Say They Were Told “No iPad Without Accessories”

CuteSteveJobs writes “Australian iPad buyers have been forced to buy all manner of unnecessary add-ons including screen protectors, docking stations, covers, chargers and extended warranties due to a reported Official Apple policy. Shoppers reported sales assistants said it was ‘company policy’ or ‘Apple policy’ to sell the devices only with accessories, or not at all. A store manager for Authorised Apple Reseller JB Hi-Fi said it was ‘a bad policy but it was Apple’s policy and they couldn’t sell one without it.’ Other customers were told they must ‘buy a Telstra SIM because the iPad is locked to Telstra,’ even though it wasn’t. The Australian Consumer and Competition Commission and Consumer affairs are investigating the complaints.”
