Does anyone has any idea what would be the street price of an used iPhone, 3G or 3GS in USA. Also what should we check before buying?
Check a few of the last iphones sold on ebay.
Not all phones that sell on ebay actually get sold. LOTS of fraud on there. I had a bidding war going on for mine with guys from Inida, China and Pakistan. The winning bidder never intended to pay and 14 days later never did. Eventually I sold it on Craigslist and avoided Ebays crazy fees, 9% is getting too high for the average joe. My final value on the auction was $416 and ebay charged me their fees of $37.85! You will see alot of zero feedback bidders bidding on expensive things like cellphones and most dont pay. I have since moved on to craigslist and had better luck and fee free. I have learned my lesson and have blocked international bidders on any of my future auctions
I wouldn't bother with an iPhone 3G at this point. It's pretty gimped next to the iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4. Also likely to be nearing the age where the battery could be getting worn out and not last very long.
Someone needs it back here India where the 3G iPhone is more than $600. Need to unlock it, so considering a 3G/3GS.
