    Black 16 gig:

    The glass on the back of my phone broke. I got an OEM replacement glass, but I have since replaced that with a brushed metal back.

    How should I go about selling this locally? Generally, people would want everything original, correct? I still have the original box.

    Phone also has two hairline scratches on the front. Non-visible with screen protector attached (not sure how that works), and then only visible when screen protector is off and screen is black.

    $350 for a quick local sale? I'm not looking to ship this or deal with returns. Other than the non-OEM back and scratches, the phone is in great condition. Should I keep the replacement glass on it or try and sell it with the brushed metal back? Or offer both/either?

    $350 sounds about right, start like at $370 OBO though. I'd go no lower than $300 at the minimum however.

    Good question. Mine is 32gig, white and has a transparent back (original back in plastic bubble-wrap bag). Most of all it is unlocked (factory) as this is how they are sold here in Finland.

    Thank you. Should I just put the OEM glass back on it? Or is it worth the same with the brushed metal?

    I guess it would just be preference, eh?

    Yes, it's a matter of personal preference. Either way should be fine.
