I have a fully working 4GB iPhone in pretty good condition. It's unlocked (verified with a T-Mobile SIM) and running 1.1.3, youtube, google maps, iTunes store all working just fine. I've owned it for a couple months now.

I'm looking to upgrade to a 8GB atleast, seems like that's a trade many have been doing recently.

Refurb 8gb at applestore is $350, so I guess maybe something lower considering yours doesn't have a full, reset warranty. I suppose people charge premiums for unlocked models, but lately it's so easy to do.

I'm going to venture a guess... $275 shipped?

his is also a 4GB, not 8GB, so i think even lower than that. i wouldn't pay more than $250 for one in mint condition, personally...

People on this forum low-ball. Check eBay to see what they actually go for. I get much higher on eBay than they offer on this forum. Just be careful of scammers.

Unlocked iPhones fetch a $100 premium (add $100 to the value).

I want to pose a question that i have wondered now for a while, why would someone buy and iphone for 100 dollars over what they go for because it is unlocked? The unlocking software that i know of is a drop in the bucket to 100 dollars.

that may be true for the general public, but not for the more technically-aware population that tends to frequent macrumors who know about the easy methods out there to unlock an iphone (ziphone, anysim, etc.). i wouldn't pay more for an unlocked iphone since i know i could do it easily myself...

Because they're rich and if they can afford Apple equipment, they can afford to pay someone $100 to unlock it for them rather than do it themselves...

they're obviously unaware of how easy it is to unlock the iphone and/or extremely averse to the small small risk of bricking the iphone

Most of the consumers who are paying $50 or $100 over "retail" on the iPhone are international buyers. They need an unlocked version of the iPhone anyway, but what they are really paying for is for the phone itself which is not available for purchase in the country that they live in. They will gladly pay a small premium to get their hands on the "iPhone."
