Thank you!

Bought this iPhone on Sunday July 1.

Overall this iPhone is in great condition. I haven't been using it in a while. It still has the 1.0.0 firmware. As soon as I have a buyer, I will restore it and update it to the 1.0.1 update. I don't think I will be able to restore it to 1.0.0.

The screen is in excellent condition, no scratches. The iPhone has NOT been dropped or "hacked/modified". It was covered by an Incase rubber case, but I soon discovered that the chrome bezel was getting slowly scuffed. I caught it just in time before it got scratched up to hell as some forum members have experienced. I returned the Incase, and began carrying the iPhone in a Oakley microfiber case. There is no SIM at the moment, but I will TRY provide the buyer with a new one.

UPDATE: I just went to AT&T during my lunch break and found out that I need to give the iPhone to the buyer and they have to come in to activate it themselves. They will not give me another unused SIM to place in the iPhone. The iPhone came with the SIM when I purchased it, and I don't know why they won't give it to me unless the user activates at the store. I'm going to try another store and see if I can get one and say that this is for a family member under our Family Share plan and let them know I want to activate it at home via iTunes.

So in addition to the iPhone coming fully restored, It will come with all the original items. They include the following:

Original Box
Cleaning Cloth
Dock
USB to iPhone (same as iPod) Connector
Power Adapter
Headphone/mic (UNUSED)

Here are some pictures.

iPhone Side - Chrome (LEFT) (http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1083/1044563665_f2ddb6fdab_b.jpg) Lighting used to magnify the scuffs. I want to be 100% honest with the buyer.

I spent exactly $536.43 with taxes. If I did have the chance to return it, I would have lost about $50.

So I'm going to let this go for $450 shipped with Insurance and Delivery Conformation. I'm also up for offers, but don't expect to shave much off the price. Don't hesitate to ask though, it's either a "Yes" or "No thanks for the offer."

I am new to selling from forums. I got started with MacNN, and ArsTechnica. So far I only have 2 (100%) feedback from Heatware (http://heatware.com/eval.php?id=59240&expandAll=1). On eBay I have 37 (100%).

Please PayPal only. Will ship to US only. Thank you! :)

If you have any other questions please let me know by PM.

At the moment, yes you can use it just as an iPod and use the built in WiFi for Youtube, Safari, stocks, and more. What I did was I restored the phone (last week) to 1.0.0, removed the SIM to put in my old phone and then put it back in the box.

The only problem is that if you need to restore/update, I think you will need a SIM card to get it activated. Or else it will just show the keypad for emergency calls.

I'm 99.999% sure that is what will happen. I will try it out tomorrow by restoring without a SIM and see what happens. If I need to reactivate it again, I'll just insert the original SIM and activate it until I have a buyer who wants to use it as a phone as well.
