    I sold my first gen 8GB on Saturday 7/12, in near mint shape, with box, charger, dock & headphones, to CEX, a UK based phone/electronics buyer/seller. They have a shop on Broadway in downtown NYC.

    They gave me $380 cash. I was pleasantly surprised that they offered that much. It paid for my 16GB 3G, a dock and some screen protectors.

    I had initally planned on selling the phone on Ebay. I figured I might get around $400 for it, but probably not for much more, and then I would have had to pay Ebay and Paypal fees, and deal with shipping.

    YMMV. I have no knowledge of CEX's pricing schemes, and make no claims as to what they might pay for YOUR iPhone. I would imagine that at some point the prices will go down. Maybe not.

    p.s. 1saleaday.com can take a hike. $200 for an 8GB? Puhleeze.

    Thanks for the idea. They're currently offering £148 for an 8GB iPhone whether it is unlocked or not here in the UK. I would probably be happy with that actually, since it will just about cover the cost of me upgrading to a 16GB 3G.

    I unlocked my 1st gen 8GB with ZiPhone (so easy a monkey could use) and sold it on eBay for £250 just before the 3G release.

    Worth a try for an extra 100 quid?

    Don't know, but www.envirofone.com do, I believe. £115 for a working model, don't know what yours would be.

    I wish apple had some sort of buyback policy for the US.
