    Do you plan to keep your iPhone?

    I am still undecided, i might want to have it around as a glorified iPod touch in case some app comes out i need, or for an mp3 player.


    But.... I like the idea of selling it as well. If i go down the selling route, i have a question for those in a similar situation.

    Do you think you'll get more selling the phone before the new iphone comes out? (iphone 3g, unlocked and jailbroken on 3.12).

    or do you think you'd get more waiting for OS 4.0, and unlocking and jailbraking it with 4.0 and selling?

    thx.

    I'd sell it before the net one comes out.

    correct...

    but do you think you'll get more selling it as is (with 3.1.3), or waiting for the OS 4.0 unlock/jailbrake, and sell it with the new OS?

    The sooner the better. I've bought and sold iPhones on craigslist and the prices are going down. Sooner the better for sure.

    The longer you wait, the less you will get. Got $700 for my 32Gig couple weeks ago on eBay.

    i'm listing my 3GS on ebay tomorrow now that i finally have some down time. i saw a used one exactly like mine go for $526 earlier today so i'm just gonna list it at $450, exactly what i sold my 3G for a little over a year ago.

    oh, and i'd recommend selling it before the new one comes out.

    question (and i don't mean to turn this into an iPhone topic),

    do you think there will be a gap in time between when 4.0 is released and available for unlocking, and when the new iphone is available?

    I'm picking up two EVOS and eating an ETF from t-mo. its worth it. i'm selling an iphone and a g1, and hoping it covers these expenses! free evos!

    I have a 3G model that pretty well used. I plan on using it as my default car iPod or occasional application download from iTunes.

    The new iphone will cause the old one to go down in value. It makes no sense that the old iphone would go up in value when a new one comes out just because of an OS upgrade that everyone gets. The OS upgrade is a free download from Apple so why would people pay more for it?

    yeah, but you could always have it there for the people who don't wanna sign the new 350 ETF contracts who've broken their old phones!
