I cannot afford my iPhone and need to sell.

I would like to get the most for my money, should I unlock it and sell it?

I have a 8gb activated through AT&T, and never have messed with the firmware.

I plan on selling it on ebay.

What would you recommend?

Unlock it then sell it.I just sold mine earlier (4gb 1.0.2) for $435!

as much as I disagree with unlocking; it might be the only way to recoup any good amount of money since they are cheaper to buy now than when first released.

Won't you get hit by the AT&T early termination fee?
Yeah, but I heard they have started to pro-rate the termination fee starting in November.

Granted it will only be like $25 off the $175, but I paying $69.00 a month with tax, so it is like paying two months without service, but another $1500 over two years is too much.

I mostly use the ipod portion and internet and maybe 15 phone minutes a month and 10 of those are on the weekend.

If I was one of those people with a phone glued to their ear, then it would be worth it.

Oh, well. It was fun while it lasted.

so the early termination fee is $175? i'm thinking about cancel my plan too and using T-mobile, much cheaper with family plan.

and yeah you should unlock and sell it, that way you will get more money back.
