    Whats a good price? I made an ad on craigslist for $400 but a lot of people were sending me offers of $250. What do you guys think is a reasonable price? It's a 16gb white AT&T phone. Only had it for a little over a month.

    I just sold my launch-day iPhone 4 for $525 + shipping, and I was actually hoping for more..

    People sit at a computer all day scanning eBay, Craigslist etc waiting to pounce on a cheap deal so they can sell it on. Hold out and you will get what you want most of the time!!

    I'd say in the >$400 range. Reason I say this is because it's not a launch day iPhone with an expire warranty. In fact, it's still got 11 months left of coverage.

    Launch day iPhones are selling for $350

    Search Ebay pretty good price gauge. FYI you can always go down in price but you can never go up.

    It really depends on if it is 16GB or 32GB. I have a 16GB and I am currently trying to sell it for around $350. Though I do have one person who will for surely buy it for $300, which is enough money because I will be using my wife's upgrade on this phone which will only cost me $200 (that is if they keep the same prices and such).

    Where did this sale supposedly take place? Which model was it?

    I just replaced my phone last month. Is there a way I could prove/show that my current phone is still under warranty.

    Is this true? How easy is it to unlock an iPhone? Is there a risk of screwing it up? I have never had the desire to unlock one but for $100-$150 more I am interested.

    eBay, launch day 32 GB iPhone 4, still rockin the 4.1 and 1.59 baseband, jailbroken and unlocked ;)

    *edit* Also, another unlocked one with the same baseband sold for $585 just an hour or two before mine - hence me actually hoping for more.

    $350 is what I just sold mine on CL for. 2 minor scuffs on screen, nothing more.

    Well if you are on the latest firmware you won't be able to! Anyways, give it a try on ebay and craiglist.

    Wow I should have posted mine on eBay. I sold two 14gb white iPhone 4's (two months old) for $300 each. I was hoping for to get $350 each but settled.

    Yea, with those things you have to be either really lucky or really patient; lord knows how long it took to sell my black 07 MB. Sold it for 500 though, which was only a 50 dollar loss (bought it for 550).
