    So I want to buy an iPad 2 and I'm trying to find things around the house that I could sell. I want to get rid of my first generation iPhone. It's got a couple of scratches on the screen and a few on the back. It doesn't turn on but I'm not sure if that's because it simply doesn't work or if it's because the battery is really depleted. How much do you think I could get for it, if anything?

    Depends on the capacity. I would say $100 most for an 8GB. $150 for 16GB. If you wanna sel it quick, it'll be a bit lower than that.

    In the condition you describe, I'm gonna say nothing or close to it.

    Wrong. $50 if you sign a new 2 year contract.

    Probably like $150 if you can get it to turn on. I bought one for $50 the other day with a cracked screen. And no, you cannot get a 3Gs for $50 flat. It is a 2-year contract. A SIM-free (factory unlocked) 8GB iPhone 3Gs still costs $580.

    However, I would watch when you post things like this on here, I've gotten reprimanded a few times by "moderators" for "price checking outside marketplace".
