    Smile [Advice] Selling 1st Gen iPhone and buy the 3G or wait ?

    Here is the deal. I have decided not to buy a iphone2.0 out right (due to its lack of features) unless i can make up the money in a short amout of time. I have someone who wants to buy my 1st gen 8gb iphone for 350$+. That amount is more then enough to buy a 3g 16gb iphone. What i really want to know is what you guys think should i upgrade and move on to a unhacked (for now) 3g iphone or stay in the game with a hackable one (the phone that got me in to the hack game). Sorry if my post seems lame, i just thought it would be important to get some others guys takes on my situation

    Ninjas should stay true to the game.. But then again, given your current location is the vague "some girls house" you may have a use for 3G's A-GPS feature Seriously, man, if you need 3G speeds, GPS, chrome voice buttons, etc why not take it and go legit? And if an unlock is found, you'll be back in the game!

    I will stick with my 1st gen.
    I don't really need the 3G speed & the GPS. Who knows when the new phone will be unlockable ... may be your 1st gen will be priceless ...:-)

    Don't Sell...
    My predictions are:-
    Your 1.0 iPhone can be sold $800 on ebay in August.The iphone supply is running out.
    The 3G iPhone subsidized will sell at$1000 on ebay.

    Sell your phone for $350 then buy another one from craigslist (I've seen some panicked sellers in my area selling their 8GB phones for $200-$250). Get the 3G when it comes out and keep your first gen as backup. Seriously, since when can you get a phone that does all the things and iPhone can do for $200-$250?!?

    I'm planning on holding out too, mainly because of the price of the 3G data plan, but i've already changed my mind plenty of times and July 11th is a pretty far away.

    Of course, I felt the same way about the original iPhone a year ago and somehow I ended up in line anyway, so I can only conclude that I don't have the willpower when it comes to these types of things.
