    I am wondering if it is time to sell my 2nd gen 16gb in anticipation for the inevitable 3rd gen. I am thinking it would be better to sell it now while it is still worth something instead of selling it when the 3g comes out and its value drops dramatically. What do you think?

    That's correct. Use the average consumer's relative cluelessness to your advantage.

    Right.

    Make sure you jailbreak it on 3.0 and have WinterBoard installed to raise the price a quick 50 bucks.

    People dont know how easy it is to jailbreak, so do it for them, and you you get more money.

    For a 16 GB, jailbroken, You can probably get 325-350 for it, considering bought price was 300, right?

    Craigslist is the way 2 go.

    No way (realistically) is the OP going to get $325 for a used device (jailbroken or not).

    Something in the $220 to $250 is more appropriate.

    Simple answer: No.

    If you do use Craiglist, be prepared to be bombarded by several businessmen who claim to have nephews in Nigeria.
