    Iphone 3g selling on here

    as me and the missus have had our's delivered, say for example she decided to keep her's

    does anyone no what the rules would be with regards to not selling over the RRP as no one really no's 100% what the genuine RRP for these are (as no 100% confirmed details have been released yet)

    maybe a mod could clear this up ??

    No doubt the marketplace will be getting saturated with these on Ebay soon...best bet would be to keep an eye on Ebay too see how much the average one will sell for..as for the RRP if people want it so badly they won't care about the RRP if they cannot get a contract with O2..wouldn't surprise me if they went for £300 a time to be honest.

    I'd guess you couldnt sell for more than $199 as steve jobs stated they … I'd guess you couldnt sell for more than $199 as steve jobs stated they would be sold for this therefore that would be my guess of the RRP. As you were not allowed to sell 2g ones for more than £269 (8gb) (RRP for phone before contract)But you'd need to contact a mod to clarify this.

    there's some listing on ebay for around £499....

    I think we can safely assume (from reading around) that PAYG will be £399 but not until Christmas. I think this is what we should consider the RRP to be. Anything over that is silly money (and some will say £399 is also silly money!)

    i think £800 is just way over the top but there will be those who will pay that i sold my last iphone on here @ cost price and i never got these iphones to sell on but if the missus didnt want her's some money towards the contract would of been nice lol but its just not me to rip people off by offering it @ £800 etc i no your not forced to pay that much etc but to me thats just to greedy

    Bear in mind the Iphone and Iphone 3G are quite different in terms of initial price - the original Iphone was sold basically unsubsidised which is why people were able to take them home without contract and unlock them to do with as they wished. The Iphone 3G price is subsidised (as with most mobile handsets on contract) which is why it's lower and you need to have it activated and signed up on a contract.

    The subsidised price cannot be used to establish RRP, if it was then most phones here would be given away free as that's the subsidised cost on contract. A PAYG price is more useful in establishing RRP, although it's not entirely accurate as PAYG phones can be a bit cheaper than sim free it's the closest there is going to be for the Iphone.
