    I wouldn't pay anything for any device with a shattered screen.

    For intact systems, check the completed transactions on EBAY for a good idea as to price.

    If you're handy, shattered screens are really no big deal to replace at all. The iPhone 4 has to be one of the more difficult ones, as you have to remove the entire "innards" of the phone to do it, but its still not bad at all. I just replaced my brother-in-law's iPhone 4 screen (digitizer and LCD) in about 30 minutes time. The part itself was $32 on eBay. Totally worth it, if you ask me. Even easier are the iPhone 3G/3GS (and like devices) - the digitizer is separate from the LCD and lifts right off the front. Fixed my wife's for less than $20; and that's how she got a "free" iPhone from a friend of ours to use with her StraightTalk prepaid plan. :D
