    I've just been to the post office to send off my original 8GB iPhone. I had firmware 2.0 on it and I unlocked it and put it on eBay. Final price was £199.99, which is more than the £159 I paid for a 16GB iPhone 3G. I'm very happy about this, because it has covered the cost of me buying a new iPhone plus the dock (which Apple really should have included in the box!)

    How did everyone else get on selling their original iPhones?

    Just sold it, including the headset for £220.00, after a couple of scams which delayed the sale a week.

    Wow, I think I got a really good deal here. Sold my original iPhone on eBay and it went for £238 (~$476)! :D The way I see it, I paid £30 to hire the iPhone for 8 months! Not bad :D And I got paid £80 to upgrade to the iPhone 3g :D:D:D

    This is one more reason to buy Apple products. There always seems to be high resale value. I just sold my 1st gen 8GB iPhone (with 2.0) for $335 on ebay. Paid for my new 16GB 3G completely.
