OT: HTC Desire (SIM Free) sale or trade for iPhone 3GS £335.00

Selling (or trading) my perfect condition HTC Desire. I bought this SIM free 2 days ago and can't really get on with Android.

I'm looking to sell for £350 or swap for an Apple iPhone 3GS, any colour as long as it's officially unlocked (not jailbroken) or on the Orange network and you've got all the boxes etc.

My HTC comes with all the retail packaging including a 4GB SD card.

Now price dropped to £335.

Shipping/Payment:
Prefer to meet in the case of a swap - I'm located near Leeds/York. For straight sale I'll ship RMSD as soon as funds clear in my bank. Bank transfer preferred.
Location:
Leeds

I think ScriVs had a iPhone and was looking for a desire.
#6
I am also VERY interested - I have a white 16gb 3gs that is on its way to be unlocked (I filled out the web pages for o2 to unlock it for me a while back)

Really interested in seeing some pictures...
#7
Picasa pics are here: http://picasaweb.google.co.uk/steelfish44/HTCDesire?feat=directlink

HI is the a contract phone or payg,

if payg how much did you pay for it and who is the warranty with in case anything goes wrong,
#9
Does SIM Free means its unlocked?
#10
Yes it's unlocked. I just fired it up with my BT sim in and made a call. Warranty would be with the CPW, it's completely unbranded.

EDIT: I guess I should clarify it's not unlocked because it has never been locked to any network. I've tested both an Orange SIM and a BT (Vodafone) SIM in and it's fine.
#11
aarrgghh so tempting! let me think about it and get back to you!
#12
OK no worries. What sort of condition/age/warranty is your iPhone in by the way?
#13
I'll offer £325 if posted first due to no feedback.

Just checked on their site, was an upgrade in october
NO scratches on the screen as always had screen protectors and very minimal wear on the back, having had a black 3g before I can definitely say the white actually stays nicer for longer.. weird i know!

Whereabouts in the country are you, anywhere near Leeds or York for an in person trade?
#19
Afraid not I'm in kent so other end of the country, check my feedback tho iv bought and sold other high value items on here. I would want 40 pounds ontop to buy a 16 gig memory card for it, or you could buy one and include it as a straight swap

Sorry, definitely not keen on that deal. Thanks for the offer though.
#21
Ok no worries mate

Would you be interested in a mint n95, a 16 gig iPid Touch and some cash?
#23
No thanks. I'm only interested in a cash sale or a straight swap for a 16GB 3GS. Surely there's a few more people out there than need to get rid of their old 3GSs before the new one comes out in two months ;-)
#24
I'd suggest waiting mate...

As you say, in 2 months the new iPhone is going to steam rolling it's way to a shop near you.

This is going to have one affect on the iPhone 3GS - lower resale value.. They'll likely push the iPhone 3G out of production (Due to multitasking looking like a reality for 4.0), moving the 3GS pricing down to the £350 level pay as you go.. They'd pretty much have to, as they need the £450/550 brackets for the next generation phone and storage combinations..

The HTC Desire resale value isn't going to drop much by then - it's far to popular at the moment. But even so, you're going to see iPhone 3GS worth around £270-300 in 2 months...

but the HTC incredible is also about to be realeased, so the desire will drop in resale value
#26
I see what you're saying, Spritey, however, in the intervening 2 months I will have bought a wedge of Android apps that will then become useless. At least if I swap to the iPhone now, I'll still be building up a catalog of purchased Apple apps.

Yeah I could use my 8gb 2nd gen iPod touch for those apps (certainly get better battery life)!! but it doesn't have GPS. I miss my Motion-X GPS app!!!

The HTC Incredible is just the U.S product line of the HTC Desire - it isn't even coming to Europe.

It's also the exactly the same phone except for an 8mp Camera instead of 5mp.. Plus slightly different design.

It has a smaller battery and word is the CPU although 1GHZ, is going to be underclocked.
#28
OK bump and one and only price drop to £335 incl RMSD insured delivery. If it doesn't go for that, I'll keep it and get used to Android! If only I could get Motion-X GPS for Android :-(
#29
Where did you buy it from mate?
#30
Got it from CPW.
#31
#32
Sorry fella, only really looking for an iPhone 3GS. Cheers anyway.
#33
Is this still available?

:?
#35
Hi - yes it is. Sorry for some reason I didn't get your notifications.
#36
hi mate, been thinking and id be happy to do a straight swap, my white iphone 16gb 3gs, for your desire, however would you be willing to post first, due to having low feedback?
#37
sparxuk: where do you live, and if I send mine by RMSD, would you send the iPhone by RMSD to me on the same day you received my Desire?

I take it your iPhone 3GS is unlocked now, and you've got all the box, charger and stuff? Do you have any pictures at all?
#38
Yes mate got the text from o2 on Monday to say phone has been unlocked, I'll test it with girlfriends sim, i have all the stuff it came with, box, leads etc, I'll take some photos and post in a minute, just finished night shift, and finally yes I will post special next day delivery the day I receive the desire. I live in Kent by the way
