    In the past I believe iphones have been selling for really high right after launch due to people not being able to get them. My grandfather due for an upgrade along with me so I was just going to sell his on ebay and try to make some money off of it. Do you all think this is a good idea and what kind of money would I expect to get on ebay?

    What happens if your grandfather's phone breaks or goes missing and he needs a new phone? Yes you could sell an iPhone 4 on eBay; I'd expect to get $900+ USD for one.

    and again with the reading of the post - he is suggesting they will get upgrades, not they have them already...

    Well my grandaddy just got used to using his razor and if it breaks ill just buy him a new razor on ebay for like 50 bucks. Should I offer international shipping? Will that help with selling it for higher price or do you think US only will do just fine. Also I was going to set the auction to end mid day on Friday and then ship it whenever it comes in hopefully on Thursday because I'm having both shipped to my house. Thanks for all the help.

    If he has a basic phone can't you just buy a basic prepaid razor for like $50 and put his sim in it? I know that was recommended to me if my iphone ever broke and I needed something in a pinch.
