    The £100 iPhone price drop is making me pretty excited. I always wanted an iPhone, but didn't want the contract, so at christmas got a 16gb iPod touch.

    Anyway, after jailbreaking my iPod back in January, and then realizing how much easier Jailbreaking has become, my plan is this:

    Buy two iPhones.
    Unlock both of them.
    Use one for myself, then sell the other on eBay.

    Its amazing how much of a premium people will pay on eBay for an unlocked jailbroken iPhone!

    The reason for selling one on eBay is that the final price for an iPhone on there varies between £280 to £350. Thats pretty much enough to pay for my iPhone aswell as the on I sell.

    Sound like a good plan?



    The only possible problem, do you reckon they are going to do a similar thing a reduce the 16gb iphone price anytime soon?

    Hi, not a bad idea i guess! But dnt you think if the price is going to drop on the iphone, people wont just go buy one and try do it them selves.

    Yeah, that could well happen...to be honest im not so much worried about paying the price of £169 for an iPhone :p but if you have been able to buy iPhones for £269 for ages, yet people still pay £350 for them on eBay, whatever happens I would still make a profit on the ebay phone...
