    Hi. I live in Portugal, and I'm thinking of buying an iPhone 4, after the iPhone 5 comes out. I wanted to ask how much do you think the iPhone 4 will cost in the used market after the iPhone 5 comes out?

    And do you think it's worth buying it on EBay or something? I don't know how much would the shipping cost, so I don't know if it would be worth buying in Portugal's used products websites, or on EBay.

    Can I have your opinion please? Thanks.

    Never heard the expression, "If you don't have anything useful to say, then shut the **** up"?

    I normally buy "last years' model' 2nd hand in the weeks between the announcement and launch. A couple of years ago I got a 16 GB 3G for £230 and last year I got a 32 GB 3GS for £300 (and sold the 3G for £190). I'm hoping I'll be able to get a 32 GB iphone4 for around the same £300 mark 2nd hand. I might be disappointed though as the cost of the iPhone4 is higher than the 3GS (a new, unlocked 32 GB iPhone4 costs £612 at the moment).

    I'm pretty sure it's "If you don't have anything useful to say, then don't say anything at all".

    Even if the iphone5 comes out I don't think the iphone4 will go so much down in price, provided that it'll be upgradable to iOS5 also is another reason.

    Nope, pretty sure the first one was right.

    Wow, this place has really turned into a pack of wild dogs. I used to think the world of Warcraft forums were the most angry, hate filled forums...

    To the OP's point of EBay shipping: watch out. A lot of slimes will have a great sounding price until you see they're charging $200 shipping!

    It is because Apple is not going to give everyone a iP5 this year. Steve is going to give them the same, just rewarmed over.:p

    I'd say anything between $400 and $475 depending on the condition and whether or not it's unlocked or not.

    Agree!!! afther all every single iphone has been more of the same crap in a different package. Well 3 and 3gs had even the same package LOL.

    WoW forums is cookies and cream compared to this place.
