    So on tuesday I guess I'm gonna switch to AT&T. I was just wondering, which color iPhone do you guys think get the most resale value? White or black? I went on ebay, and really all I saw was Unlocked iPhones which were going for about $600+. But when the iPhones come out and I sell the 3G I get, what will rake in the most money for me so I can pay for the new phone itself? Thanks guys

    Unlock your iPhone and advertise it on ebay as unlocked. It won't matter what color it is.

    Personally if looking for resale value alone I'd probably go for a White one as I'd *imagine* this will show up scratches less than the Black one but if it's unlocked and on eBay it doesn't seem to matter what colour it is

    Hmm. Black is in higher demand while the white is less common. I'd assume they'd both go for quite a bit if they were unlocked.

    White is very feminine. Black does have the scratches that are more apparent but more sought after.

    White is not feminine. I know a lot of guys who drive white cars or wear white clothes. White is not masculine or feminine. Actually... every guy who sees my white iPhone wanted to get white, but only could afford black.

    There's also likely to be a new iPhone out in the summer. You might want to hang on just a bit longer!

    Oh goodness. WHITE IS NOT FEMININE. I prefer white shoes as well as my iPhone, it's very fresh and attractive.

    In the promo shots the black one looks better, but in person I really prefer the white one. I think it maintains a newer look, longer.

    I have a black one but if I could go back again I'd get white.

    Either one will sell for a lot if it's unlocked.
