    so ive checked most recyling sites and for a 32GB iphone 4, is going for UK £420

    thats £180 less then what i paid for it, is this the price the 3gs sold for around the same time frame from release? just interested in knowing the information and no im not selling it right now. just so you dont pull you're own conclusions and play columbo like i know some of you do ;p


    for you yanks thats a $282 price drop since brand new

    cheers

    iPhone 4 32Gb is selling for around $650-$750 on ebay right now... more than double the amount I paid for it. Why am I not selling it???

    Edit: Whoa... how much did you pay for your iPhone?!?

    Um I'm not sure where you are going with this thread but the iPhone and most Apple products hold their value over time. I've sold all 3 of my previous iPhones for more than what I paid originally for them after a year own owning each and paid for the newest version and had a little left over. Pricing is based on S + D. Things can change pretty quickly. In any case, the iPhone is a great phone and an excellent investment, if you take care of the phone!

    I think you will get 350-450 depending on the condition of the phone and also if unlocked/locked, apps included, jailbroken etc.
