Are you selling your old devices?
Title says it all... sound off.
I want to keep mine, but not sure why I should.
I already messed up by not selling it earlier when I
had a chance to get it for $550 off clist or $600+
on eBay, about a week before the announcement.

I also gave my 3G to my wife when I bought the 3GS, and now she'll be getting the 3GS. Haven't decided what to do with the 3G yet though. We also still have 8 and 16GB original iPhones around the house! The only iPhone I sold was my original 8 GB iPhone to fund the 16 GB original iPhone (when they came out in Feb '08).
But honestly 5 iPhones when only 2 are active is a bit much, even for me. The originals make great media players though (better screen than on the 3G IMO). From a development perspective I should sell one of the original phones and keep the 3G (for a testing device), but I feel like for an unactivated device (i.e. no data plan, so 3G isn't an issue) the original phones are better (metal body, better screen, flat back), esp. when both models have the same processor, memory, and camera.

eBay is flooded with them. CL, forget about it. I
have this app that checks for every new 3Gs 32gb
iPhone being sold and my device is going crazy and
this is only for my area of NJ. I'm scared I made a
mistake in keeping my 3Gs, especially since I have
3 backup devices: Nexus One, BB 9700 and Pre.

I am selling my old 3GS (well new after a suspect warranty replacement last week) on CL/backpage/Ebay soon after I get my iQuattro. I am going to wait for the 4.0 jailbreak first. The buyer can deal with the unlock portion themselves when it's released. I am thinking of selling it close to 400. I am not greedy, but I do want to make at least some profit.

I am going to try to sell my 3GS as-is and just take what I get for it. It's suffered some water damage within the last month, but it's only caused some relatively minor problems so I'm hoping someone can either fix it or use it for parts.
Phone still works, successfully makes phone calls/texts, whole screen works, etc. The only problems are that I get a constant "This accessory is not made to work with iPhone" pop-up like every 30 seconds, and the external speakers don't work because it thinks that it is docked. Ringtone & alarm sound both work, speakerphone works.

You don't charge? No one borrows anything of mine that has a nice resale value for free. Borrow a game from me? That's fine, although I do hesitate. Borrow a phone that can still command over 300 bucks for free? No thanks. To each their own, so hats off to you. Can I borrow your car? I need to go grocery shopping.
