    Default iPhone 3GS 16GB Black Selling Price?
    Hey,

    Since iPhone 4 will be out soon, I'm planning to try and sell my 3GS (Black, 16GB) to someone in my city as I would like to try and not bother with selling online and paying shipping fees.

    The question is, what should my asking price be? Like the highest and lowest price I should ask?

    The phone is about 8-10 months old, and comes with the original packaging, cables and headphones included. Everything is undamaged, and the front side of the phone is 100% unscratched. The back side has a few small wear signs, but that's okay.

    do they have recycling schemes in the US?

    quickest way to get some decent cash for your old phone.

    For what it's worth, in the UK you can give a naked iphone 3g 16gb away for around 200 and a 32gb 3gs for 300

    This must be close to what you could expect to sell online for

    The value of a 16gig 3GS can be compared to what you'd pay for it new. $99 + tax + $375 ETF + $65 first month service + $36 activation fee = $585.00 or so. A used phone in mint condition is def worth $475 or so.

    Nice advice guys!

    According to this, I should give a starting price of something in between $460-500 and then perhaps lower it to $400-440 if the potential buyers find the phone too expensive.

    Thanks!

    I am thinking about selling my 16GB 3Gs also. I have been watching ebay and looks like jailbroke/unlocked 16GB 3gs's are being sold from $350 to above $500.

    I think these are the steps to prepare my jailbroke & unlocked 3.1.2 5.11.07 3GS for sale:

    - Restore to 3.1.
    - Blackra1n (to jailbreak)
    - snow (to unlock)
    - remove SIM card
    - Power down

    Questions

    1) At any time, do I need to activate the phone using my ATT sim?
    2) If yes, at what step do I do that
    3) Should I turn off 3G in settings before the last step (power down) and ship?

    Thanks
