    Default Price guess-timation?!
    Hello everyone,

    I now have an iPhone 4. My iPhone 3GS is still fully functional however the screen has been replaced (poor job; the home button is pushed in a little bit) and the Wi-Fi antenna is very short ranged (wear and tear according to Apple Geniuses).

    I want to sell the iPhone 3GS, but I don't know how much it can sell for.

    Would it bring in more cash if I replaced the digitizer entirely?

    What price would you sell such an iPhone 3GS at?

    Thanks!

    I would replace the digitizer as this will definitely bring you more money.

    Its one thing for it to have cosmetic blemishes but its another if it doesnt function correctly.

    I sold my 32gb 3GS for $260 and the only problem was that it had a small crack on the back near the charging port. I have seen some go for around $300 that work perfectly as opposed to those that sell as parts phones for around $60-$100

    My iPhone 3GS is a 16GB. The phone itself is fully functional. Only the Wi-Fi is very weak. As I wrote in the first post, I went to Apple and they said it's "normal".

    I'm guessing I can easily sell it for $215? There are very few blemishes on the rear casing and the home button is a little pushed in.

    I have a 3G that has poor wifi try this...
    Open it up and right at the back where the wifi antenna plugs on to the mainboard fold up a little piece of cardboard ( a piece of Rizla packet is ideal) not too thick lay it on top of the connector and close the phone up. Basically so that it pushes down on the connector a little. I did this and voila full wifi range again. Turned out to be a little loose that's all!

    The Wi-Fi antenna is located at the top left of the iPhone (3G/3GS), correct?

    If you could take a snapshot of how it looks on your phone I would much appreciate it!
