    Since I have been happy with my iPhone 4 , I decided to sell my iPhone 3GS 32GB today.

    Taking the pictures - 20 mins.
    Posting on eBay - 10 mins.
    Sold on eBay - instant
    Money on my account - priceless

    Even with all this antenna brouhaha, there are some things you can still rely on-

    Great Apple products with excellent resale value.

    'just thought I'd post something positive for a change.

    20 minutes to take pictures? I only took one (because it's free) and eBayed my jailbroken and unlocked 3GS black (also 32GB) last week for $454.

    I got $100 for my unlocked 16G 3G. It was pretty nice.

    By the same token, I was able to sell my Nexus in under a day, for more then what I was asking.

    Basically, I posted the sale on wednesday, and had it sold but not picked up shortly there after. The buyer arrived later thursday and paid me cash and no ebay fees to worry about :D

    This was after getting about a half a dozen offers within a couple of hours of posting.

    I suppose that's the power of the android brand ;)

    I sold my 32GB 3GS for $300 about two weeks ago. Today I bought a new 32GB 3GS at BestBuy for $199. $100 profit, gotta love it! I could sell the new one and make more money if I wanted to. I think I'll finally sell the 3G. I hate that phone.

    Dang, that's cheap! Whoever bought it got a nice deal!
    I sold my refurb 8GB black iPhone 3G (originally bought for $150) for $200! :D

    But the seller of the iPhone probably bought the phone for $300 due to subsidies. The N1 was probably bought for retail so you lost money on the sale. Let's not mention the N1 was a complete flop.
