    Question why is no one buying?

    I have been trying to sell these on eBay for 2 days and no one has bidded but they have looked: and here I have been trying to sell them to get my iPhone 4S for Sprint and even tried Craigslist and no one what is going on? I news a brave soul to buy one or both of them and then you can resell them lol

    I would guess its because you have no feedback on eBay, or because you don't have any pictures of the actual item. You may want to try on here, or craigslist. But get pictures of the actual item, that helps people see that it's real, and not a scam.

    My only guess is because most of the people who want an EVO already have one since they have been out for a while. As far as the guitar I'm a musician myself and when I'm in the market to purchase a new Bass guitar a like to buy new. Not to mention the fact that it is a ton of guitars on Ebay's site for sale. Your guitar item on Ebay is probably lost in the shuffle of thousands of other guitars for sell. Try maybe changing the title in the listing to catch the eye of someone looking for one. Iím not saying these are the reasons why no one is buying, but just my personal thoughts.

    lol...a fiery noob!

    You have zero feedback...and you have 3 days left on a product that is saturated on eBay. Those reasons are specifically why your stuff hasn't sold...

    Try craigslist, lol...

    Had you bothered to look on this entire forum, you would've found the section that clearly states MARKETPLACE.

    My online plan for you is working.

    Wow, another useless thread by the same person...by the way, you sound like an immature little brat that gets all pissy when someone says something she doesn't like. Get a better attitude.

    Not to mention that an EVO brand new from sprint is $449 full retail so why would someone pay $400 for one on eBay?

    You know i didn't pay much attention to the prices you were asking...lol. A bit optimistic with those numbers there...you've got that same guitar going for $150 Buy It Now, and the phone used going for $250 Buy It now...so you can add extremely over priced to your list of reasons why no one is bothering.

    No matter what, we can't resort to name calling here. I've been assigned points in the past for that, so let's try to at least not do that.

    Just a suggestion, lower your shipping price. Ive sold dozens of phones on ebay, and USPS Priority for a one lb. package is only about $8. As some have said, Craigslist is a great venue to sell phones.

    Hmm...dropped twice, but works and a guitar with invisible dents. I can't imagine why they haven't sold yet either.

    You have to wait till about the last day before people start bidding. Also, the evo is too expensive at the buy now price. No one in their right mind will pay for that.

    You said you hate the phone yourself, why would anyone else want it? There's a reason for everything, and if you get no bids it means you either have a lemon or your minimum price is too high. Go no minimum, that's the ticket . I say close the tread.

    I sold my evo for 153 plus a lot of add ons. If its not a new evo, you're not getting that much for it.

    Craigslist has worked great for me when it comes to selling stuff. I know a whole bunch of People with Evos so they probably don't have much of a demand.
