I just got $150 on ebay for my completely busted iPhone. It works perfectly but doesn't have a SIM and the screen is done.

Anybody know what the big deal is?

How messed up was it? I have my OG one from when they first dropped but the power button stopped working. I was thinking of pushing it to get a Bold, so I waswondering how much I could get for it.....

The earpiece area is completely cracked down to the actual touch screen and the screen itself is cracked on the entire left side. Everything else is goodthough and the screen still works perfectly. Crazy...I just got a 3g for $50 and they lowered my monthly payments from $50 to $40

they sell for alot because 3g sells for twice as much still
and there is no point to get 3g if u have tmobile because there 3g network is different than AT&T so u would pretty much be getting a 2g iphone. if thatmakes sense
