    Hi all,

    I'm new here.. I've always visited this site but never actually posted anything, so I thought it was about time to join and see what's up at Mac Rumors.

    Anyways, my question to those of you who sold your iPhones... How much did you sell it for and what condition was it in, and when did you (or will you)?

    I'm trying to get a feel for the prices.

    I'm pretty sure it's in the right forum, but if not, sorry!

    I sold my 16gb for $504, and 3 8gb for $305 (dented back), $406 (year old) and $455 (couple weeks old).

    I sold the 8gb for my friends. I bough myself an 8 gb for $300 last week since I was tired of using a nokia. I thought I could go til July 11 but I couldnt.

    I sold my dented and scratched 12 month old 4GB iPhone for $100, a sidekick slide with sim card and a RAZR. The sidekick is pretty new and there are only 2 scratches and the razr is fine.

    3-month old 16 GB with a small dent on corner for $519 + shipping. Sold about June 5th.

    And, btw, I'm looking for a group for recovering iPhone addicts. I miss my phone terribly! :-(

    Will any of you people who sold your iPhone be eligible to get the new iPhone for $200? I'm thinking about selling mine and don't want to have any surprises. I assume if you have the iPhone plan then you're already eligible, but that would suck if you had to bring your iPhone with you for proof. I highly doubt that though, but just to be on the safe side?

    I bought a brand new iPhone in January of this year. Sold it this May on eBay for $375. It was a little nicked/dented up due to a few drops.

    thanks for the replies guys (and gals).

    I just bought an 8gb brand new in box sealed for $400. I think it was a pretty good deal.

    I'm interested in what the "net" cost when you sold your iphones

    I see all these people saying they sold their iPhones on Ebay for $400-450 etc.

    Are you guys saying you sold it for $400 after all the ebay/paypal costs are accounted for. I sold my iPhone on craigslist (drove 5 miles to Best Buy) to sell the iPhone for $350(8GB).

    Soif you really sold it on ebay for 400, than your net costs are really about 350-360? I think ebay costs are like almost 9% for the first $25 and like another 2.5% for the remaining balance and than you add in the paypal transaction costs so the fees really start to add up and cut into the profit.

    I'm waiting to see how improved the audio quality is..

    If it is, as claimed, 'drastically improved', then I'll hold out till July.

    Otherwise I'll get a 2G offof eBay..

    I sold my 16gb in really good conidition boxed, receipt etc last week (after the 3g was announced)

    Advertised on Ebay so paid listing fees, but someone local showed interest so I ended the auction early and got £300UKP ($600) for it....chuffed...what I paid for it 6 months ago.

    Im using my wifes 8gb now and in two minds whether to sell it or hang on to it. Its standing me £200 at the moment, but really dont wont to be without it as I love and use it all the time.

    I walked into a pool with my iPhone in my pocket last weekend so I got $0.00 out of it. :D Using a Blackberry until July 11th when I exchange it for a new iPhone. Man, do I ever miss my iPhone!

    Sucks for you. They're not going to be selling it unsubsidized, I'll tell you that right now. You HAVE to buy the data plan if you're getting it at AT&T, and getting a data plan = getting a new contract.

    Just sold my 8gb 6-month old iPhone for $395 ($365 after fees and shipping costs). Never had it in a case, had a few scuffs on the back, none on screen.

    Listing here.

    Sold it to a guy in NY, but had quite a few offers from people around the world.
