    I loved the iPhone but not the black so sold it and made a nice 500.00 profit, wondering if anyone else did the same..

    So you sold for 800 and will get a new one for about 750.

    Great work

    What's wrong with a 50-dollar profit?

    I would just take the money and run. $50 Boost Mobile pre-paid and the rest for whatever.

    Between taxes and activation fees it'll probably be less than that. Worth it? Probably not.

    he had to order the phone, arrange a meeting with someone from craigslist to sell the new phone then go at least a month without an iPhone 4.

    all for $50

    time is money

    Whatever the cost, the white one will be well worth it....

    Especially since with all the extra time, the white ones will have the antennae issue fixed, the laminate glue will have fully dried and they'll have extra scratch proofing.

    Can we just start calling the white one the iPhone 4.5? :p

    Well in the end all that really matters to the OP is that he'll get a white iPhone, obviously waiting is not an issue to him/her, and any profit is good.

    as long as he still has the micro sim card, no activation is required.

    I have 12 lines I can upgrade any for the white phone for 200.00
    Sold the black for 700 paid of the cc that had the 210.00 charge and pocketed the 480.00 will buy another for 210.00 and still have profit.

    Why wait, 700 was good for me and eBay is getting about 900.00 but after fees and waiting maybe 800.00 I have no scams selling outright, might do this on the other lines I have.

    And yet you're worried about making a profit on one phone when you're paying for 12 lines.

    Some things I'll never understand.

    It's a business account we use iPhones however we keep the upgrades for us.
    I think I will buy a couple white when they come out.
