    Default Appraisal for broken 8gb?
    Some of you may have seen my last thread.

    I basically messed up my phone. Now when you place a call the only way you can here the caller is on speaker phone.

    I am now looking to sell it but i don't see any other phones on ebay or craigslist with my particular problem.

    Everything else works fine...how much do you think I should start negotiations at?

    Lowball? LOL, I'll give you $50, but only if you pay for shipping. JP. No but seriously, I wouldnt pay 200 for a broken one that I would have to pay shipping on and fix, when I could get one locally (craigslist) for $250 that works.

    all thats wrong with it is the ear piece and you are trying to knock off 200 dollars off the worth of the phone

    The earpiece isn't as easy a fix as a simple glass or LCD break and it would be more difficult to find parts. You'll probably find someone to pay you maybe $200, but I'd say around $100 will get it out of your hands quickly and easily.

    I say about ~$125 . Fixing a iphone is a huge hassle. In addition most iphones parts are pricey.

    That could potentially be a very simple fix
