Did anyone here breakdown and ebay their phone for profit rather than keeping it?

    Getting a phone in a week or so and the temptation to sell and make a quick £300 is very tempting, any others do it?On the other hand Im not sure I can wait any longer to have one, opinions? (before anyone moans its a supply and demand market,Im not forcing anyone to bid for it at whatever price)

    I always Ebay mine right at the launch of a new iphone, It basically pays for my new one, plus I usually profit. No reason for me to keep it around.

    The only reason I would even consider keeping it, is it use it as a jailbreak device.

    But I can always pick up a cheap iphone for 100 bucks or so If I wanna do that

    Here in the US, its down right impossible to make a buck selling the new phone on ebay - that is unless you want to say locked in a 2 year contract with AT&T and no new phone to show for it.

    We now have a 325 ETF, so we're already down 525 if we opt to sell and cancel the phone.
