    Default Question about buying a replacement iPod and selling a used one

    I have been wanting to purchase an iPhone for awhile now, but there are a few features that are lacking, notably, 3g and gps. with the announcement yesterday from att's ceo that 3g will come out this year i can finally see that happening. rather then wait till the end of 2008 however, ive been thinking of purchasing a gen 1 iPhone and then selling it when the new one comes out.
    Is that is a feasible plan? will a pre owned iPhone be sellable? I understand that you have to activate new iPhones through Itunes and sign a new contract with ATT, will a buyer of a used one be able to just pop in his sim card if he has an ATT account?

    Also, if I buy a replacement iPhone, would I be forced to create a new ATT account through iTunes (thereby being on the hook for 2 ATT contracts) or will i have to extend my contract for another 2 years? I dont know anyone who actually has the phone so I dont know how the process works. any help would be appreciated so I can ditch my samsung, thanks!

    First off, it's kinda rude to do the "any info on this?" thing on a thread which is less than a week old. Please don't do it again.

    For answering you questions:

    1) Selling off a used iPhone will be easy. If 2nd gen iPods (yeah, the old firewire only ones) can still fetch $100 on ebay right now while 6th gen iPods are available, a 1st gen iPhone definetely will sell for a pretty good amount when the 2nd gens came out.

    2) This will depend on ATT. It would seem reasonable that ATT would accommodate iPhone users who want to upgrade since many of them will be interested in buying a new one immediately when the new one comes out.
