    Make sure it is not a scam artist trying to get you to ship it to Nigeria.

    Be careful with that eBay instant sale. I've heard horror stories of how they will give you a lowball price after they actually receive it. I hope you get your $300 but I'm doubting they will give you that much since eBay "Instant Sale" is just eBay seller 'alltechwholesale' who resells all of those iPhones right there on eBay and by paying $300 for an iPhone 4 they're not making any money.

    I'm curious about this, I've never done an ebay instant sale before. It says in their FAQ that as long as you describe the item accurately, the quoted price is what you get. But it only asks me If the phone is "fully functional", if I have the charger to include, and if the phone is working. That wouldn't account for anything cosmetic. I wonder if I'd get the quoted offer or not.

    I've used instant sale 4 times and always gotten what they offered me. never had any issues with it. Plan on doing it again with my iPhone 4 in the coming weeks.

    It's supply and demand.
    The more people trying to sell, the lower the offer.

    Craigslist in my area is about 325 for an iPhone 4 32GB unlocked give or take 25$. Ive been tracking ebay prices. They are about 360-390, after subtracting 40-45 in fees, you are looking at 320-340 plus all the hassle that goes with selling on ebay. Just too many scamsters, even the ones that reside in the US.
