i'm realyl wondering if it's possible to fit more than 20,000 lg g2s in one truck. how big is that truck? that must be a really big truck. are these phones in their retail boxes or just stacked without the usual packaging? 20k is really a multitude. how big are the boxes holding each lg g2?

What a waste of great hardware. I'm just shocked they chose LG instead of Samsung or Apple O.o are Apple and Samsung devices closely guarded when in-transit or something? Very suspect, sounds like an inside job to me, I hope these idiots get caught.
