Thread: How much are used iphone 3gs going for typically?

  1. #1
    Default How much are used iphone 3gs going for typically?
    I'm looking into selling my 3gs 32gb that is in perfect condition to fund the new iphone 4... but first I have some quesstions.

    About how much should I be able to get for my phone?

    Would I be able to sell my phone now... put my sim card in an old phone for a couple weeks, and then just bring in my Sim card only to activate my new iphone 4 that I purchase at the Apple store?

    Can you resign a new 2yr agreement with ATT even if I resigned 7 months ago? Will this resigning allow me to get the iphone 4 32g at the 299 price?

    Thanks for the help guys!

    Roughly 2-300 for 16gb and 3-400 for a 32gb on ebay. YES I have mine listed and am using a cheap old razr phone for the time being.

    As long as youre "upgrade eligible" you can get the 4 with a new 2 year commitment.

    I put mine up one eBay. If it is in good condition, just jailbreak and unlock it. You will get above $400 for it.

    My 32GB iPhone 3GS (which was jailbroken and unlocked) went for $460.

    now that i am restored factory to 3.1.3, theres no going back or unlocking?
    As of now you can't unlock it if you factory restored it. But the dev team did say there is a way and that it works, they're just waiting till iPhone 4 comes out so Apple doesn't stop the unlock by the time the new firmware comes out.

    iPhone 3.1.3 05.12.01 baseband unlock imminent, Sherif Hashim discovers exploit

    Just state that in your auction and it shouldn't affect it too much.

    I want to sell my White 32GB 3GS but I have it on 4.0GM right now and I don't think anyone would really want it. It is registered to a dev account ect. That is all I really have going for it. lol.

    I was too eager I guess and might have screwed myself out of getting rid of my current iPhone =(

    that seems reasonable to me, I am not desperate for the money, lol. I already have my iPhone 4 paid for.

    I guess the advantage with my phone is that it has 4.0 GM on it and is registered to a dev account.

    I'll probably put it up on the Buy/Sell section early next week.

    Luckily I played it smart. I listed my 32GB 3GS on eBay BEFORE they announced the iPhone 4. The key is to have it unlocked and offer to ship worldwide. With that being said, I started it at $0.99 and it ended at $640. Had $50 in eBay fees and $18 in paypal fees. Not too shabby though!

    You will get more for it on ebay as the 3gs 16 and 32 are going for $250 to $300 on Craigslist, of course there is some for $500 to $600 which will not sell!

    I would put it on ebay and give the specs as most of the people know whats going on in the jailbreak nation or they simply want one un jailbroken which is ok too!

    From someone who's sold several iPhones on ebay, just remember to take their seller's fees into account. They're pretty sneaky about making you forget about the percentage of your final sale that goes to them.

    There's always the modmyi buy/sell forum if you have enough posts!

    I don't know what eBay you guys are referring to but these prices don't reflect what I've just been paid.

    I sold my 2 day old (warranty replacement) 16gb 3G[S] in original packaging for $471. This was with shipping though. And this was 1 week BEFORE the iPhone 4 was announced.

    A co worker of mine closed at $520 (also a 2 day old warranty replacement) 5 days AFTER the iPhone 4 was announced.


    You can still get good money for these phones, but as others have said, you really really need to have them unlocked for them to sell at top dollar. The above 2 examples were for unjailbroken phones that were not unlocked. These may be rare examples.

    Make sure your ads look professional and the ad will go a long way

    When? Because I was unable to get more than $360 for the same above mentioned iPhone that I ended up selling on eBay. They are dirt cheap now. And have been for over a month. On craigs anyway. eBay is the way to go.
