    I have a 32GB iPhone 3GS that I plan on selling once I buy an iPhone 4, probably in a couple months. My iPhone 3GS is on 3.1.3 already, and I realize that affects its re-sale value on the secondary market (jailbreak/unlock) at present. I'd like to upgrade to iOS4 on Monday, but I may not if it will affect the phone's re-sale value further. Is there any advantage to staying at 3.1.3?

    You can upgrade to Ios4 and then downgrade your firmware when you are ready to sell, it's really easy.

    if your not going to sell it for another couple of months, then I say upgrade to iOS 4 for your pleasure, and I'm sure that in a couple of months they're will be a jailbreak available for it.

    I believe you would profit more if it was Unlocked (not just jailbroken)

    The dev team has already said there is a jailbreak and unlock
    for the new OS they just haven't released it because they don't
    want apple to patch it before it's released.

    So I would say resell value will increase by installing OS4
    as it will soon be unlockable
