Chinese man proposed with a ring of 99 iPhones, yet she said no


How many iPhones are enough to woo a woman’s heart? Probably no one knows the answer. But thanks to a Chinese man we do know that 99 iPhones are not enough.

A programmer in Guangzhou publicly proposed to his girlfriend with a heart-shaped ring made (image above) of 99 iPhones. But according to a report at The NanFang , the proposal resulted in a rejection, and heartbreak.

The news report said that the programmer bought 99 iPhones with RMB 500,000 (over Rs.50 lakh). The money was almost equal to the man’s two years’ salary.

The images from proposal scene later made it to the Weibo, China’s biggest social media site, and went viral. Several Chinese web users commented that the proposal was “stupid”.

Incidentally, the man proposed a day before November 11, which in China is marked as Singles’ Day.

In China, iPhones are often considered premium items and in the initial phase of the launch of the device are often difficult to get. While this fact may not have helped the heartbroken man in wooing his love of life, it may help him get rid of the iPhones. The resell value of iPhones is high in China and if he plays it smart he will be able to get most of his money back.
