    He says he has no use for it..front and back glass are shattered since it was ran over by a car without a case...funny thing is the display works perfect..only the glass is damaged...so here's my delima..do i jailbreak and unlock then sale it? How much could I get for it? Should I fix the glass and jailbreak/unlock then sale?
    Edit: I already have a ip4 in working order that's mine

    1. pay $200 and get replacement
    2. sell for $350-$400 on eBay/craigslist
    3. profit

    changing the front glass on the iPhone 4 is a lot of work as the glass and lcd are fused together (or whatever).

    I'll give you $1 for your shattered iPhone 4 thats been run over by a car. :p

    Also, selling or asking for a value is only allowed in the market place.

    No more than $10. Nobody wants it as is.

    Actually you may be able to get about $50-$60 through an auction on ebay, assuming that it's really just the glass that's broken. If everything else worked someone would buy it.
    (heck, if it was a CDMA iP4 I'd probably buy as is for about $40, if it has a clean ESN)

    If I were you I would see how much it would cost to get that screen replaced. If it's all working then even if the repair was $250 you could still make $250. Though with WWDC next week and iPhone 4S/5 or whatever is announced, prolly won't sell for $500 much longer on eBay.

    If you have technical know-how and have patience and common sense and follow tutorials, you should have no problem replacing the parts in this phone that are broken. This could be profitable to you. Be smart!

    Making it white could also make it slightly more desirable. Keyword could considering there are legit white ones now. But yeah!

    I'd just replace/fix it. Theres no use in selling it for parts or as is because it would probably take forever to sell and you won't get a lot of money for it. Like others have said I'd throw some cash at it and fix it up and make some more mulah.
