i sold a used iphone 4S with only 16GB for over $300.

the math is simple...a new iphone without the subsidy from the carriers is still more expensive...

lots of peeps on contract that want to upgrade but don't want to pay full fare

the international component is also true...hot commodity in china

there was a line around the GM building (mostly chinese from my observation) that were in line for the ipad mini launch on friday

Thanks folks...I feel a lot better about it now. 5 days to go and the price is double what I expected.

We'll see, but it looks like a legit buyer, and there were other pretty legit looking buyers who bid far more than I understand.

Buyer just informed me that he thought it was a 4. Do people read?

Check used prices on Amazon if you are concerned. iPhone 4's seem to fetch a real nice price. Heck, even used iPhone 3's can go for over $200

Isn't that what you posted in your OP, that it's a 4?

It was very clear that it was a 4...he's either a moron or has buyer's remorse. In his possible defense, he is international, perhaps it was miscommunication.

Whoops - I typo'd...he thought it was a 5.

Correct...buyer claims he thought it was a 5.

Really annoying, but...in the scheme of things...it's not that big of a deal. I'll re list and move on (probably blocking international bidders).

It takes two morons to bring the price up to that level.

There were three bidders over $700 - either a lot of folks misread the ad, or it's worth more than I thought.

Second chance offers or going to run the auction again?
