    Whoa, I checked the trade in value at Best buy's calculator last night for my 16 gb 3G iphone and it gave me a gift card value of 177 dollars. I thought great, I'll just print that confirmation off tomorrow. Well I went back today and its down to 96 bucks it seems....Can anyone confirm that the values are way way way down, even over a 24 hour period? Could it be just a bug\glitch?

    I've gone over to Gazelle.com

    My iPhone 1st gen 8gb and my iPhone 3G 16gb will bring me a check for $187.

    more iphones = less demand.

    if they kept offering that same trade in price, they wouldn't be able to sell em all.
