    Hey guys, this might not apply to everyone and most wont care, but I just sold my 16gb 3gs for $450 using this CraigsList post that i created. It added more credability to my post and I received a number of responses. Just post the following in your CL add, no pics required... (once altered)

    You can alter the text in the body to suite what you are selling I believe, (city, price optiosn etc)

    Thanks, just trying to give a little back


    Here is a preview of what I created

    Apparently.

    My wife listed her 32 GB 3GS at $300 and had a dozen people all write back and offer $250.

    So that's what we went with. It seemed to be the going rate in our area.

    i sold my 3GS black 16gig for $250. Out of like 50 emails i received about 40 of them were Indians. Apparently they buy the phones in the US for cheap then take them back to India where they are expensive as hell.

    how do you modify your location and edit the post in the first paragraph next to the iphone picture?

    I modified the bottom portion but cannot find the top part.

    Yes, nearly all the replies we got were middle eastern names. Apprently that's where the demand is. At least, as far as Craigslist is concerned.

    I'm thinking of upgrading to the iphone 4.

    Ive got a 16G 3GS which is 8 months old.

    Without bothering to unlock and jailbreak it, can I just erase my data and sell it as-is for a similar price?

    Is there still demand for these phones?

    Anyone on MR want it?

    Nice layout on VFlyer...


    Peaceeeeeeeeeee.

    eV... you LITERALLY just copy the code and paste it in your craigs list posting..you dont have ot upload pics or anything... scroll down in the txt and change what you want the wording to say. Mine is pretty generic so it will work for a lot of people but I can change the top heading upon request..

    Cool. I'll give it a shot. Mine's the same model, except it's a 3 week old replacement so in mint condition. Running 3.1.3 with the 5.12.09 baseband. I might wait a week upgrade it to 4.0 and then unlock it. Might get more cash. Plus, there's a lot of 3Gs out there right now, let the dust settle a bit.

    Cheers mate - eV

    Could you make an identical one for 32gb 3GS? So, just replace 16gb with 32gb and change location to scottsdale, AZ 85259.

    Thanks in advance!:)

    If you have time could you do one the same as the 3GS but for (iPhone 3G 8GB Black)
    no headphones or box. Just the phone and a case. lol Price = $250

    Unlocked and Jailbroken on iOS 4.0!

    I would return the favor someday if you ever need anything :D
