    Well I'm considering buying a used iPhone 3Gs. What I'm unsure of though, is what price would be reasonable?

    What would be a good price for a perfect condition:
    8GB?
    16GB?
    32GB?

    How much money would you take off of the prices approximately is it had:
    Minor scratches on the back?
    Major scratches on the Back?
    Minor scratches on the screen?
    Major scratches on the screen?
    Anything else you can think of?

    If the phone was factory or software unlocked, how much would that effect the price?

    If I were to wait another while before buying one, how much do you predict the prices would differ?

    If you could answer some, or all of these questions that'd be of great help!
    Thanks

    I bought a iPhone 3GS 8GB Black, MINT CONDITION no scratches at all. $285. It's used.

    8GB and 16GB are the same price.

    That time it's a lot cheaper, now the 3GS goes for around $320.

    Software unlocked add $50-75

    Factory unlocked Add $200.

    depends where you live too...also some places like ebay the prices vary considerably, other places like craigslist etc its not an auction so you may score a bargain there...shop around and be sure to do all you can to protect yourself from being ripped off or sold a dodgy iphone. In Australia 300 is where they seem to start at and go up from there....maybe 200$ for a scratched up 3g8gb.

    Okay... I may have the opportunity to purchase a used 8GB 3Gs. It has a few scratches on the glass and on the back, but other than that it's in pretty good shape. Currently on firmware 3.1.2, so I should be able to update and unlock it, yes?

    is $250 CAD a good price for that?

    Thanks!
