You should be able to restore it to factory settings and the buyer could hook it up to itunes and set it up with at&t. How much are you selling it for? How many Gigs? Could you jut not afford the at&t bill?

if its in good condition and not jailbroken I would suggest 350 or so.
I got close to that (approx. $310, if I remember correctly, before shipping on ebay....) for my old little 4gig. Just lucky I suppose.

I too got rid of it due to at&t service - or lack thereof. I really loved the phone and basically using it replaced my other computers in total for basic computing with that convenient little baby. I do miss it in those terms. Sad that I just couldn't justify keeping it due to the carrier! I would, in fact, pick up another if I could legally use another carrier.... Hear that, Apple?:mad:

Good luck with your sale, in any case. And... to hijack the thread...... how does the iPod Touch compare to the iPhone if I just wanted the aforementioned functionality in a similarly convenient package?

Why not just stop the service,get some other pone and still enjoy the rest of the iPhone?

Because for the $310 in opportunity cost the iphone was costing me by holding onto it, I could get a phone w/decent service and still use my old computers until I can get a little extra cash to get (maybe) a touch with more storage. Having a 4gig iPhone with the aforementioned lost opportunity costs and not use the phone just seemed wasteful.
