    if you search iPhone 3G on ebay, many 3G iphones come up. A few of them say unlocked!!! How is this? These are definitely 3G phones, but how are they unlocked?

    Maybe turbo sims. It's surprising how much people are paying for them. For the $800, you could buy an iPhone and pay the ETF for your current provider.

    LOL... i sold an 8GB 3G iphone for $631
    wish i checked it sooner cuz i would have never opened up my 3G 16GB and sold that one instead cuz ppl where paying $1500 when it first came out... but now the price has gone down drastically. I guess is because there no real shortage on 3G phones

    Yeah shortages like that are BS. They just like to drive up the price.
    just like gas!

    im also guessing the price is so high cuz there's no contract either... regular price for the 3G is still like $499 but im still amazed at how much i got for my 8GB 3G... practically got my 16GB for free with some extra money for gas.

    I was also very tempted to add another line to my contract and pay the ETF for that particular line. I figure $199 for the phone, $175 for the ETF for a total of $374. now if the 3G iphone sells for $600 on ebay i still make out $226 minus the ebay fees and paypal fees i still make about $190 which is still very reasonable.

    When I got my 16 GB 3G they wrote in the pamphlet that the retail price was $899.

    Lets see now...

    $299 for phone
    $35 activation fee
    $400 ETF

    $834 + 13% tax = $942.42

    So... $1000 is not that far off!
