    Well, i ve been looking around for weeks now and it is really hard to find an affordable iphone 3Gs either 16gb or 32gb. By affordable i mean.. up to 450 for 16g and 525 for 32 gb. I know they sound like way expensive prices but for those who didnt know, prices for each device are 200 more than what i put before. So i was just wondering, how many of you have had some kind of luck buying an iphone 3gs in ebay at a "cheap" price. .This is my 2nd week looking for my iphone 3gs and i havent been lucky enough to find one at the right price Maybe there are some success stories or strategies that you would like to share in here

    Oh yes i know.. i ve been busy these few weeks trying to find it. Today i saw this bid for a new iphone 3GS 32 gb that ended in $510 with free shipping.. so he could re sell it there if he wanted easily for $800 on a buy it now price and win 300 bucks like that. But of course thats only if he wanted to re sell it

    Off contract iPhones are always expensive compared to their heavily carrier subsidized price. Your best bet for an iPhone 3GS is buying it at the full carrier subsidized price and then canceling the contract after 30 days.

    The cancellation fee is $175. So, for a 16GB, you're looking at $480 (iPhone, activation fee, first month's bill, and cancellation fee). $100 more for a 32GB.

    I wouldn't buy one on ebay anyway. SCAMS. it'll probably just be a 3G someone is trying to sell, and on craigslist, unlocked 3Gs's go for like $800-$1000.

    Just sayin'
