iPhone 3g 16gb on ebay

Why is it so hard to find a decent iPhone 3g 16gb for sale on ebay? I've got a 20% off voucher and would love to use it. Considering you can buy them new delivered from Apple for £390, I simply don't understand why they're going for £500+

I want to buy from a genuine seller, at around the price they are new in shops - maybe even a bit more, but it's not possible.

What is the world coming to! Or more-over, what is eBay coming to!

I believe the expensive (£500+) ones are sim-free from abroad, I think it's Italy and possibly France where you can buy them unlocked officially.

You have to get lucky on Ebay and spot an individual selling an unwanted upgrade or such.

Could get a 16GB unlocked new iphone 3g from this seller. item 320323085017. He's took £450 before looking at his history as offers, but may go a little lower?? Nice idea though using the 20% off code!!!!! Wish ebay would send me one. Just sold a few things on there so maybe i'll get something soon!! New, and unlocked, thats probably the lowest you will find. These are all imported in to the country from Italy etc where they are legally, unlocked. Thus probably, the higher costs.

Have you sold much lately to get that discount code?

yea, how did you get the 20% off discount?

Ebay do this. Select users and send them out vouchers, or money off codes. Usually when they have sold quite a bit in one amount of time.

Nice. Good price :-). Hope i get a 20% off soon and i'll be using the same way!

How weird! Just got a 15% off one moments ago in an email. Shame it Expires on the 19th!! A whole 2 days to choose what i want.

Shame i don't have iphone money at the moment, but will give it serious consideration!

borrow beg and steal! 15% off is not bad

Not sure if a unlocked 3g iphone will work with a three sim. Will have to do some research and find out! Don't think i'll end up getting one mind. But maybe!
