Hello, I was just wondering how much an iPhone 4s prototype is worth? Please let me know, thanks!
No, how much is it worth.
depends how early a prototype.
As much as someone is willing to pay.
I've seen Apple prototypes for sale every now and then, and they can usually go for ridiculous amounts. Unfortunately, I have no advice on valuation; as someone stated, it is worth as much as interested buyers are willing to offer. Curiously, you have a 4s prototype? And if so, what is your proof that it is legitimate?
I do indeed have one.
might worth jail time I am sure it belongs to Apple still!
It would be worth quite a bit to a collector but its hard to put an exact value on it. It's also hard to imagine how you might have acquired this device legally--but I'm not saying you didn't. I'd definitely check with a lawyer if you plan to sell it.
Nice, I'd hang on to that one. If you really need the cash, however, you can try putting it up on eBay to test the water for interest.
how did you get it??
Apple normally get the ebay auctions pulled as they never allow them out of their control. Which means if you have one, it's not with their permission and attempts to sell would be a criminal act.
How did you come by this prototype? I'm guessing it wasn't for a huge sum of money.
1 trillion dollars.
Why have a trillion. When you can have.... ONE MILLION DOLLARS!
So, are prototypes pretty rare?
An original Apple I recently was sold for $350,000, but nobody is paying for any Apple II. You figure it out.
Yes, prototype devices are extremely rare. As others have mentioned, they're property of Apple corporate. They never sell them, so anybody who sold it to you was selling or giving away something that didn't belong to them.
I understand you're looking to profit from a fortuitous circumstance that lead to it being in your possession. Legally, it's Apple's property and they have the right to have it returned to them without compensation.
You might email Tim and offer to trade it for a 5S as a goodwill gesture (given that you did pay $500 to acquire it). They have absolutely no obligation to agree to that, but it'd save everyone a lot of trouble; you'd get to profit from the circumstance and Apple would get their property back.
IANAL, and I don't intend to be an accessory to anything, so I'm giving this advice under the understanding that it's not illegal to ask for a reward for returning lost property.
Watch out, the iPolice are outside your door.
Thanks for the advice.
It's too late. Ur already in too deep. Ur goin down pal. 4 hots and a cot.

Hmm. I was just browsing eBay and happened to find these:
