    So, I sold my used 8GB iPhone on eBay for $375 shipped. I'm obviously happy that I can now get a 3G 16GB iPhone and actually make $75, but I don't want to wait a month. Do you guys think the original iPhones are still going to sell for that much on eBay or will the prices drop like lead balloons? Should I have just waited to sell it?

    I got $403 shipped for my iPhone and I'm happy. I make money and i now get a 16gb version with 3G... I can wait a month. Once the market notices the iPhone 3G, prices will drop dramatically.

    Edit: majinoo makes a good point. Sales could still be high since it's supposedly going to be much harder to buy without a contract

    I think the prices on ebay will not drop so much , since a lot of users want it unlocked to use it on any network they want . With the Iphone 3g , it will get way more complicated to unlock it and sell it on ebay to make a profit .

    if they dont find a way to unlock the 3g iphones the price of unlocked v1 iphones will at least stay the same, if not increase.

    in a!

    but if o2 sell the pay as you go iphone at reasonable £200 then i guess its all good. i sold mine for £250. so it means i would have made £50... Though i'll still have to wait for someone to unlock it so i can use my current contract.
