    I think it should've gone UP. Since now people can get even more out of those old ones on top of the No contract. ;)

    The value is going to rise slowly for a pretty long time IMO. The quantity of first gen iPhones is going to get lower and lower, because people that bought the iPhone and got the 3G iPhone are selling them, and of course i don't think many people sell the first gen iPhone they bought from another person, so there is going to be less iPhones going around. If that makes sense.


    If anything, now is a great time to sell.

    the reason i ask is because i put my 1st gen on ebay last night for 300$ and no hits yet. im not looking to make a killing on it or anything but it is in really good shape, always been in a case and has a screen protector. i think where i messed up was i forgot to change my address to japan in ebay and it still says florida and the shipping cost on there are for japan...o well if it doesnt sell i will just put it back up with the correct senders address.

    is there a section in macrumors for selling stuff?

    You NEVER start an iPhone auction out for $300.


    Tsk tsk...


    But it's okay :). I would cancel your listing, and start it at .99 cents. Make sure you do a 1 DAY auction. Put a reserve of $300 then. Don't get discouraged if it gets no bids for a few hours, it's usually the last couple hours where all the action happens.

    You should lower the starting bid, but really the only way to tell is to keep watch on the closing auctions.

    No one can tell you better then the source, how much they are selling for.
