It's pretty much a sure thing (pretty much) that it's coming out this month or next. You could probably even make more than 300 if you ebay it.

Tell him you'll sell it to him for $400 and that you can jailbreak or unlock it for him.

If you ship to say Europe, it would probably cost you $50. Paypal and eBay fees would be like $10. IF you can sell it for $150 more, that's still a $90 profit. It's worth the try I think

I think a lot of people are debating if and when to sell-

I have decided not to do anything until I know the EXACT date of release. Knowing Uncle Steve I believe it may be a few weeks if not longer after the announcement until we are able to actually get our paws on one.

Personally, I think it's too much drama to try to sell it now and get the best possible deal and be with out it for weeks. After having this phone I cannot go back to my old phone, even for a little while...I don't think the v2 will be more than $399, so if I can even get $150-$200 for the old one I'll be happy....remember not all areas have 3G yet so there are still people out there that will be looking for the orginal.

I gotta say, that sounds like a pretty cut and dry deal to me. If someone offered that to me with no strings attached, I'd probably go for it...

I sold my iPhone a few weeks back on Craigslist for $500. I read somewhere that the iPhones are selling for like $700 on eBay right now. I've not checked myself, so take that with a pinch of salt!

$300 is a little low if you ask me. I would ask for more.
