    Decided to start this topic based off another thread where someone mentioned about pre-order eBay auctions where "buy it now" prices are almost up to 10 grand!

    A.) Do you really think there are buyers out there that would actually pay anywhere near that amount?

    B.) If not, what do you think the max is someone would pay for the phone? I ordered the 16GB model as I didn't need all the space from a 32GB model.

    If I could make a killing I would be willing to part with my phone and buy one at retail in July but won't do it if I won't make a substantial profit.

    What do you guys think?

    I think it's ridiculous to be honest. Don't get me wrong, I've thought about doing it myself for each release of iPhone (and iPad) but it's not worth it to me to deal with the whole process. Plus I want my iPhone for ME on launch day. Not to just ship the darn thing and have to wait. Call me self indulged hahaha.

    No, I don't think anyone will pay 10 grand.
    But there are international buyers who will prob pay maybe 1400?

    Exactly what im doing, its worth an extra 100 bucks or so to have it unlocked and jailbroken from what ive been seeing on ebay.

    yay!

    I was thinking about the same thing. I'm getting my iPhone 4 for $299 and to replace it it would cost $699 so for it to even be worth it I'd want to sell it for over $1000. I think if someone would buy it for $2000 I MIGHT sell it haha

    The max you could get for an iPhone 4 32 GB would be 1,500-1,700 I would think

    Yeah I didn't think about what the profit would actually be for what most are selling them for on eBay...you would barely make a profit after you repurchased at retail, paid the ebay/paypal fees, shipping etc...I guess I shouldn't pop vicodin pills before I post on the internet.

    Excuse my ignorance but why would any one pay any more than the retail price without a plan?

    ONLY if it's(iOS4) unlocked by dev team... will it be worth double and more overseas. Otherwise it's a very hard sell overseas. And a lot of people with money have no problem just waiting a month now a days being the economy isn't that great.

    Ebay fees, on top of Paypal fees would make it not even worth it. Also if you ship overseas there is simply no way to track it, if a seller disputes in Paypal they never got anything youre (the seller) screwed 99.9% of the time. Also most buyers are going to want 2-day delivery which would cost even more shipping thus raising the price of your fees even higher.

    Blah

    Because they didn't pre-order and iPhones are more or less sold out everywhere.

    I guess I should have said pre-orders are being pushed back further and further not sold out.
