    Hey I bought this phone for 275 and i think i can score around 400 for it :D

    question is I think i could get more if i keep it unlocked and jb, however what should i prepare when i sell the phone

    when i got this phone (not modified) the guy said he restored it so i had to plug in my cable and do something with itunes.

    I dont wish to do that I would just hand the phone to whoever is buying it next.

    But as you know everytime you try to install an app from apple appstore you have to reenter your apple account password, how do i get rid of that? can it be hooked up to someone else's account?

    Anything else i should do?

    First thing you should do is use Apple's iPhone erasing app first to get rid of all your personal data.

    Then just use QuickPwn or PwnageTool to jailbreak and unlock it. This would be the optimal condition to sell an iPhone, it's ready to rock but your data and apps will be absent.

    Doing a "DFU" restore will wipe it. I'd be willing to buy it - how much are you charging?

    lol sorry i am just craigslisting it

    I slapped a 450 on the label since that's how much ebay is going for. Plus i got over 50 dollars or so of accessories.

    Some local people are really dumb ;D

    Just plug it in to your computer, run QuickPwn, and sell it on eBay. I sold mine for $415 buy it now. (Jesus, people are such idiots on eBay)

    no need to restore or anything?


    I might do it. Some guy just emailed me to unlock his iphone lol. I think unlocking an iphone is now a unique skill.

    I have picked up 4 8GB models in perfect condition from 225$, to 275$, I would not pay a cent more...

    just wipe it clean of your data and ship it...
