    Default I just got $105.50 for my iPhone 3G 16MB!

    Yesterday I pulled the trigger and purchased the iPhone 4 (which I love BTW). Saw in the local paper that Target buys old iPhones! So with the money I got from Target (in the form of a gift card), my iPhone only cost me $95 (plus sales tax and that $18 upgrade fee).

    Target uses this company nextworth.com. You can get a quote for your phone at their website (NextWorth: Buy and Sell Electronics, Sell iPhone and Video Games, Recycle your gadgets - NextWorth.com) If you don’t want a Target card, you can go through nextworth and get paid via pay pal.

    I'm sure I could have gotten more on Craigslist, but its done and I don't have to deal with it anymore.

    Just wanted to pass this along.

    It was in pretty good shape. It always was in a case and I used screen protectors. There were minor scratches on it. The guy basically went through the questions at that nextworth web site. The questions were:

    -Cracked Display (no)
    -Did wifi work? (yes)
    -Dead spots on display (no)
    -Fully functional (yes)
    -Audio jack functional (yes)
    -Working battery (yes)

    He never checked the audio jack, but he did look at the display etc.

    You could have sold it privately for more than that.

    Agreed that I could have gotten more. But I didn't want to deal with Craigslist or eBay. Been burned before so it just wasn't worth it.

    I don't know about $200 for a 3G, understandable for a 3GS, in good condition of course, but $100 is still great.
