Our Old IPhone Sold In Less Than Two Hours on Craigslist
People still are in a frenzy to buy iphones - if my craigslist sale is any indication. My family replaced our old iphone 2G's with new iphone 3GS's for Christmas. Today - I decided to sell on on Craigslist.
Above is a picture of the ad I placed on Craigslist.org.
To my surprise - my phone started ringing and texting off the hook. It seems everyone and their mother wanted the old iphone - even though it had a chip on the corner.
I got over 30 calls and text messages - some folks even offering me more money if I held the phone for them.
But here was the best one from Jeff - "hello i was just curious to know if you would be interested in a possible trade, tattoo work for the iphone."
I was relieved when a nice looking young man with a Toyota showed up with the cash. While he was standing here - two more calls came in. Some of the calls and texts were pretty rough - scaring me to hide the silverware.
The phone is gone - $99 cash.
I did hit the reset button to erase all the personal data.
