    Hey everyone. I figured this was the best place to post this since I'm not technically selling anything at this point. On August 18 of this year I bought a 3G Microcell from AT&T for $150 + Tax coming out to about $164. I've left the awful service of AT&T, but now I'm left with this basically new Microcell that I can't return. I'm thinking of posting an ad for it on craigslist (I don't really like to deal with ebay), but I'm not sure what I can get out of it. It includes everything. The microcell, the charger and cables, the ethernet cord, all cables and manuals, box, etc. It's been kept in an adult only pet and smoke free home, and you could put it next to a brand new one and not tell the difference. Works great. What do you guys think? How much would you sell it for?

    Put in $100 O.B.O.

    If they offer over $50, take it. Something is better than nothing right?

    Very true, but it's a tough pill to swallow taking a loss of about $100 after owning the thing two months. I guess I'll put an ad up and just hope someone offers a fair amount.

    I agree with $100 OBO, but I would've put my reserve of sorts at $75.

    Guess it comes down to if you want to sell it for a $75-100 loss or sit on it and lose all $164. It wasn't an investment, you were never going to break even anyways, so ask for $100 OBO and see what happens. I don't think anyone will pay more than that for a used Microcell when they can go out and get a brand new one for a little more.

    Yeah fair enough. I posted an ad and we'll see what happens.

    Easiest way to get a good price idea on anything is to look at the item on ebay and look at the auctions ending soonest. See what the range of top bids are. Then you know what the current market value is.

    That's a good idea.
