    How much should an iPhone 3G 8gb with original packaging, usb/wall charger, and Seidio Innocase II with OS 4.0 installed go for?

    Is $250 too high? The phone has light scratches on the back, no scratches on the glass. The case is in perfect condition, no signs of wear.


    What would a good title be to grab people attention away from the other 100's of craigslist ads?

    Way too high dude. I have a 32gb 3GS in mint condition that I wll probably list for that. No one is paying $250 for a 3G, especially 8gb.

    Uh, that 32gb 3GS is going for twice that price on eBay right now.

    $250 sounds about right to me. I just sold my 3GS 32GB for $450 in excellent condition.

    Tips: Be concise. List any scratches. Have good pictures. Do your homework and see what similar iPhones are selling for in your area.

    Thanks for posting this question. I want to know how much I could get out of selling my 8GB iPhone 3g as well.

    I was going to say, any mint condition iPhone 3G is going for that if not more. Jailbreak it and unlock it and it's worth $100 more.

    Seems like it's going to be difficult to sell. There are so many other 3G owners selling theres and I've had mine up all day with great pics and complete description. No emails :(

    Thanks for the tip. Do you suggest putting your real email address in the ad or just let the reply to the "reply123123@craigslist address they give the buyer?

    this may be a dumb question but do you take the sim card out or leave it in when selling it?

    Oh man, definitely go with the anonymous address, not your email address, unless you enjoy spam. I wouldn't put my phone number in either.

    My procedure was: show the iPhone to the buyer, get the cash, wipe the iPhone (from the Settings menus), pop out the SIM card, and hand over the iPhone.

    Damn, I forgot you have the 3G. I had the 3GS, where wiping was a lot faster thanks to the on-board encryption chip. Not sure what to tell you then, but I'm sure you can find the answer out there.

    If you take it to a nearby AT&T store, they will gladly wipe it clean for you.. It takes them a lot less time then it would take you on iTunes.

    The past two years I have unloaded mine on Craigslist Los Angeles and they sold within hours. They send them to Israel and Thailand from here. I could have easily sold it 10 times over.

    Craigslist is getting hot here in Bakersfield. I've seen a 3GS 16g go for $150.

    Yep it sure is nice living in Los Angeles, when put up a fake listing for a unlocked 16gb 3g for 350 just to see how many replies I would get, I easily got over 200 in 2 days. Ill be selling my 3GS on criagslist for 400 as soon as I find my sisters old damn razr to use until the 24th.
