    Hey guys, I need some advices..

    I have this iPhone 3GS 32GB locked.. I found a buyer yesterday that can buy it for 520$..

    What should I do? Sell it and wait for the next iPhone?

    But I heard the next iPhone has nothing really special.. Other than the front camera, the 720 recording, what can we expect more?

    Also, how much u guys think will the low end iPhone cost? and if it's revealed on the beginning of june, when approx. will it be on the market?

    Thanks guys

    1 - The "new" phone has not been officially announced.
    2 - We don't have crystal balls here.
    3 - Search is your friend. This/these questions have been asked to death here.

    Buyer where? eBay? In person?

    $520 is a bit fair price for used + locked. I am going to say this much. Every iPhone release is always better in one sense or the other than its predecessor.

    Sell it if that is a legit offer.

    Front facing camera, higher res screen, and a redesign. AT&T doesn't have a 4G network or anything like that, so if you don't need the above features, a 3GS will still be a fully featured phone.

    It's ridiculous that people will buy a 3GS for that much money. Hell, you could sell yours for the $500, and then buy a refurb from AT&T for $350.

    Sell it! Good price man. If you don't like the new Iphone that comes out, you can buy another 3GS on ebay for 400 and pocket the 120...bling bling!

    that is why I'm hesitating.. but maybe there's some other new features like a much better battery life, etc.

    I guess I'll sell it and if the 4g disappoints me (same with iPad), I might buy back a 3gs brand new for the same price i sold it :D

    However said the next iPhone will run on LTE? The next iPhone and the one after that will all be 3G. Simple.

    Take the $520, take it now. I think you will be glad you did.

    $520 is a whole lot. Get rid of that thing ASAP. I'd sell my 16GB for $400 in a snap.
