    Hello all,

    Sorry if its a repost, but was curious to find out, how many of you people have sold your old iPhone? Or planning to sell it today or tomorrow?

    I got a 16 gig iPhone in March and right now, I am in double minds, whether to keep it on auction or not?

    Please cast your vote so that people like us can get some encouragement to sell...

    I've had mine since October and I still have no plans to sell it. Why? I don't feel like paying 400 buck's again just to have 3g. Don't get me wrong 3g is sweet I love it to death but I don't use my internet enough to need 3g.

    Im confused. I bought my iPhone on July 7th, so a week after it came out. And I still love it, I have no plans on selling it. Im sure i'll end up buying a 3G iphone should it become available in the next few days/weeks

    Hate to be picky but 3G refers to the network it runs on not the model and the first iPhone ran on EDGE or 2G. So it's really 1st Gen and the new 3G iPhone coming next week is the 2nd Gen.

    I am not selling my iPhone as I will not be upgrading. I just got mine in January and the new one isn't enough of an upgrade to get a new one.

    Ya true. I actually meant 1st Gen but with so much talk of 3G, ended up putting it as 1G.. :)

    Gifting mine to a friend who's been jealous from day 1.

    It's sad, but I told her I'd give it to her just to make sure I have to buy the new one for myself.

    I can justify ANYTHING.

    I'm most likely keeping mine even though i'll probably be getting iPhone 2 sooner or later

    My current iPhone has served me very well. I've dropped it, thrown it carelessly, stepped on it and it still chugs along no problems.

    Its been loyal so its only fair i remain loyal to it :D

    In total with buying a temporary phone I'm losing 20$ if the new iphone if 499, Hell yes I sold it.

    Honestly... it's a phone... they are designed to work for at most 3-4 years and in general roughly 2-3 on average. I've got a chance to buy a "brand new" one... why not do it? My old one was immaculate with no issues but still... 3g? Hell yes. I'm tired of sitting for 2 minutes at applebees because they don't have Wifi to load up macrumors.com.

    I'm in the same boat, but I think I will give my mom my first gen, she has a BlackBerry and I know she wants an iPhone, but I still want to sell it, but, but, but... My thinking just goes back and forth...

    mine is on Ebay right now.

    I would give it to mom, but she doesn't really need an iPhone and recently signed a new 2 yr agreement with Alltel to get a new phone. She could use an ipod touch, though.
