    I plan to ebay or craigslist my droid. Its actually brand new in a box because I got a new one due to my last one being defected. How much can I expect for it and how do I go about it? Id like to sell it now and just use a temp phone.. so whats the logistics of this? Thanks!

    I did the exact same thing. Go to eBay and search the completed listings. That will give you an idea of what it's worth.

    Then choose a point on the high side and include a Best offer option.

    Good luck!

    Don't forget to account for ebay's ridiculous sellers fees when determining your net. I'd try on craigslist first.

    Definitely. That's why you price it on the high end. Craigslist buyers are usually looking for items pretty cheap. I don't know what type of users are on eBay but I just sold my Incredible for well over $550.

    If you purchase a Droid X at full retail, can you also purchase the Asurion insurance for it through Verizon? Do all the same rules apply? Like the year warranty thing?

    id put it on ebay, craigslist gets too much spam got to watch for scams..

    i put my tour on CraigsList to sell when i got my DINC and i got all sorts of emails saying they want to offer me 100$ more than i wanted and would pay for shipping overseas and they wanted all my info like name and address etc, it was a joke yea right im not that dumb to fall for one of those scams. one of them claimed it was for their son who was ambassodor in africa. so just keep your head on straight when selling it. if its too good to be true then it is. and plus i trust pay pal and ebay more than craigslist
