    So i have my iphone on ebay and i only put it on for 3 days. I have 0 watchers and 0 bids, but i am curious to the people who sold on ebay, do you start seeing buyers around the 1 day mark?

    You will definetly see most of the activity on the last day and mostly in the last few hours.

    I'm not eligible to upgrade until December so do you think I could get $400+ for my white 16GB? I would also include a pair a V-MODA earphones. eBay is probably flooded with them so I'm thinking I won't get very much. I don't want to list it until close to the end of the month because I'll be getting $600 for a side job I did. The money was going for a TV for my "office" but if I could the the 3Gs and sell my 3G for $400 I could still get the TV.

    It depends on the condition, but maybe about $300-$350 right now. Put it up with a Buy It Now price and free shipping too, since almost everyone is offering that now.

    It's in really good condition. The apple on the back is a little scratched but other then that it's really good. I just threw it up on craigslist to see what happens since it's free.

    If it does not have OS 3.0 or OS 2.2.1 with Baseband 2.30. Make sure to state that it can be Jailbroke and Unlocked with Yellowsn0w. If it is able to be used by T-Mobile customers it improves your customer pool.

    If it an 8 GB iPhone 3G then you need to know that many AT&T customers can get one for $99 and pay the $175 ETF + $18 upgrade for a brand new one. You might consider Craigs List for a local transction that would be quicker and have no fees for you as the seller.

    On ebay, a lot of factors come into play.

    1. Your feedback score as a seller, is 100 percent.
    2. The wordings in your ad, "like new" "excellent condition" "fast shipping" etc
    3. Photo, did you use stock or the actual pic.

    Good point on the jailbreak, it has 3.0, and the new unlock from the dev team will not be officially out till tomorrow...so i didnt want to mention that. Mine is the 16gig black.

    If i dont sell it tomorrow, i will get it back on ebay with the jailbreak+unlocked status once i get Ultrasn0w on it
