    So how many of you sold your old iPhone in order to buy the new one. And are now using one of your old ones?

    i did and for the past two days have been using my old samsung black jack. you don't realize how good the iphone is until you use something else. it is superior in every way. i'm using the blackjack and an old ipod nano to replace my iphone. the blackjack is useful only for making calls - everything else on it sucks - web surfing is useless - emailing is bad - music playback is horrible.

    i miss my iphone - friday can't come quick enough for me.

    I sold my iPhone 2G the day after the WWDC announcement, so have been without one since then. At the moment im using an old nokia 8210 and my nans ipod shuffle. TBH hasnt been as bad as I thought not having an iPhone, but still cant wait till Friday.

    wow - two weeks - thats a really long time. i keep reaching for my phone to get some bit of information and suddenly realize i can't get it - or - it will take me so long to get it that its not worth the effort. so many people have complained about the iphone virtual keyboard - well let me tell you - the blackjack has a blackberry type keyboard and i'm considerably slower on it. once i learned to trust apples i sped up quickly.

    I never got a chance to sell my iPhone. In an effort to make it more 'appealing' to a potential buyer, I tried to replace the semi-scuffed back covering on the phone with a new back cover I ordered. Chaos ensued, and now the earpiece speaker and proximity sensors are broken. I am stuck using speakerphone for calls now, which sucks because you need to be careful about who you are talking to when others are around.

    thats sucks man - and the sad part it you really don't need to do that - just tell them the back has normal wear and tear and they don't seem to care.

    Sold mine on the 8th, right after the keynote. Somehow I got my wife to agree to let me use her 3G for the past week until the 3G s is released :D

    Hilarious. I sold my iPhone 3G 16G six days ago. I can tell you that I'm not nearly as productive on the go without it. I'm looking forward to picking up my 3GS on Friday.

    Mine will sell today and I don't think I can ship it out until Friday. I don't even know what I would do without my iPhone.

    I think we have a few cheap pay as you go flip phones downstairs but I don't even think I can use that right now. haha

    How much are you guys selling your phones for? I've had mine on ebay for almost a week now with no bids and only one watcher. It's a 3G 16gb in white.

    Haha I sold mine last night and have done this 4 times so far. It serves so many functions, just a reminder of how revolutionary this device really is. Friday will be here soon enough though, a couple days isn't so bad.

    I sold my 8GB for $275. Most listings I've seen for the 16 GB have been between $300 and $375 (USD)

    Yeah, it didn't even look bad (or I should say doesn't look bad since I never completed the repair). But I am the kind of person who wants to make sure everything is perfect for the buyer, because when I sell the person something (over craigslist), I want to make sure I am giving them the best deal I can, and use the same standards as I would expect when buying something myself. Just tried to go that extra 'mile' to make the buyer happy.

    I sold my 16GB Black with AppleCare for $550 a week before the developers conference. I sold it prior to the conference anticipating a better profit. I think I was right as the prices have come down a lot since then. It's been longer than I thought. Friday can't get here soon enough.
