    I just wanted to get some oppinions and see if anyone has seen any evidence of 3.1.3 or 4.0 jb/unlocked 3g being worth more when selling?

    I was thinking about updating to 4.0 and unlocking before 4.01 comes out, but for a 3g it seems like leaving it at 3.1.3 might be better.

    Thanks for any thoughts!

    I've been watching eBay, but I can't see a clear trend. I am leaning towards 4.0 (at least with 3g you can always dowgrade).

    Yes, you can also put on your auction that the buyer can pick either 4.0 or 3.1.3 firmware preinstalled.

    Thanks! That's a good idea. I would just be worried doing it at the last minute (this will be my first jailbreak).

    I've been watching sales of the 3g (16 & 8 gb) and noticed a couple of things.

    1. Prices have picked back up a little the past couple of days from the dip they took:

    2. Prices between 3.1.3 & 4.0 unlocked/jb are pretty even.

    Although complaints about slugish 3g on 4.0 have remained steady.

    Just sold my 3GS yesterday JB and unlocked on 4.0 for $375 on ebay.
    Not bad.
