    I have an extra unopened iphone 8gigs.

    Do I sell it on ebay?

    Or use return it to Apple so the credit goes back on my card and I don't have to bother with it anymore?

    Sell it fast. There is almost no inventory of new iphones at retail right now, so people who need one can't buy one. But as soon as Apple announces iphone2, your iphone will be worth a lot less. Since today is Tuesday and there was no announcement, you have at least a week (till next tuesday) or at most until June 9 when Steve Jobs does the keynote.

    I've been looking on ebay and wondering if the extra 50 or 60 bucks really worth my trouble.

    But in the end I think it will be.

    Post it on Craigslist. It's free and you'll sell it faster than eBay. The anonymity that eBay provides has really hurt the experience in recent years. I've had much better success selling locally.

    Can't use Craig's list. All the ATT stores locally have iphones in stock.

    It's pretty safe to say as well that the new phone isn't going to be announced until the WWDC. So I've got a little time.

    i think you should put it on ebay as soon as you can. your area is probably one of the few areas in the country with iPhone stock, and if you put it on eBay somebody across country would probably buy it who is desperate.

    dont take it easy and leave it too late. if you also wanna make a quick buck while at it buy a fewiphones from ATT store and put on ebay too.... they will go like hot cake.
