    I have had my pristine condition Verizon 32g ip4 on craigslist for 3 days now for $350

    Not one call

    I see others in the $300 - 400 range for same phone specs listed

    Anyone else seeing slow responses to their ads?

    Had my ad up for $350 on Tuesday and sold it Wednesday. I live in a big city though, not sure about you.

    This is EXACTLY why you have to list and sell your phone BEFORE even the official announcement of the next iPhone. Of course prices will plummet as soon as the public knows a new phone is coming (in addition to the market being flooded with people doing the same thing as you).

    I sold my 32 GB iPhone 4 Sunday night for $540.

    "Watch" some on Ebay to see what they end up going for. I plan to sell my 3GS 32GB next week. I was thinking I'd get like $200 for it.

    Why would you do it that way? Just do an advanced search and check "Completed Listings".

    Know your market. I have a iPhone 4 32GB with a preserved baseband of 1.59. Going to sell it to someone at T-Mobile for at least $560.

    If you are willing to ship overseas then the sales price goes up.
    Average selling price on eBay 2 days before pre-orders was $350.
    My guess is that current and future value is dropping.

    I am in Tucson
    Thanks for input/ideas

    If I need to I will post in Phx
    Not in big hurry to sell till I have a 4s

    I was mainly testing waters as I don't really want to go back to my droid till the 4s is in my hand

    Surprised at not even any calls trying to low ball etc...

    Win

    Being in the UK, iPhone 4 goes for in excess of £400 (750USD?) for a like new/good condition used 32GB model. I've watched several auctions, all set up post-announcement, hit this. Pre announcement it was about 100USD higher, depending on condition.

    I sold my Verizon iPhone 4 for $275 tonight on Craigslist within an hour of listing it. I priced it a little lower to get a quick sale. Some that have higher prices seem to never sell.
