    I was offered 299, I have a 32GB white model. I can't really figure out the going rate for the device anymore with the release of the iP4 so any advice would be great.

    That sounds a bit low, I've seen the 16's going for that much though.

    i would say 300-400...depends on how picky you are. 300 is a good price through it will sell quick. in my area on craigslist they are asking for 280-400+

    That sounds about right to me, if you have patience!

    Do you have ios4 running or is it 3.1.3? I listed my 16gb 3GS for $300 and would get some bites until they found out I was running iOS4. After about a week I finally sold it for $265. I could have gotten more maybe but I didn't want to wait the 2-3 weeks and have to keep messing with it so I came down and it sold about 2 days later.

    Yeah, it's running iOS4 but that is pretty clearly stated in my for sale post on another board. I keep getting nibbles at 300, but I had to purchase the iP4 at full retail so as much as I can irk out I will.

    So far I am thinking of asking 325 shipped and calling it a day, seems like a failr price.

    Do you guys realize that you can install old os's easily?

    Sure, but is there a reason I should do that?

    I just sold my white 16gb for $330 on eBay. I really think it's all luck. I know my other friend sold his white 32gb for $450

    More money for 1. I got $750 for my 32gb unlocked 3.1.2 white iphone 3gs in May. Fudge that was the longest 60 day of my life with out my iphone.

    So you can jailbreak them and unlock them. You can get a good bit more money for them that way. Unfortunately, there is no way right now to do it since you installed IOS4 though there should be in a couple of weeks.

    I bought a 3GS 32GB black for $170 with AppleCare until December. Pretty awesome IMO.

    My 32 GB 3GS is running iOS 4 and is jailbroken and unlocked

    Yes, but if you did like me and have not previously jailbroken your iphone and installed IOS4, it cannot be done yet. I researched the crap out of it because I want to sell my phone and saw that you can get a lot more for unlocked phones. There are also problems with phone with the new bootroms (which I have).

    I just sold my white 32GB 3GS for $355 shipped. Unfortunately, it was an international sale (Canada), so Paypal still has its grubby mitts on the money. ;)
