    I have iphone 3gs, 8GB. unlocked ( was on three but officially unlocked it)
    used, but kept in case most of the time. these are very minute scratches at the back though screen is very good (screen protector on ). On the back just above charging, I can see hairline crack which is very normal for used 3g/3gs. I am looking £90.

    Hi, I'm not sure if you have decided to buy mankam's item, so apologies if this isn't relevant, but..

    I have a 16GB black iPhone 3GS, complete with a box, inserts, some paperwork & charging cable. The phone is fitted with a BestSkinsEver front&back skin - although the front part of the skin is starting to show signs of wear at points (see pics). Overall condition is very good (screen is fine, no noticeable scratches or marks), buttons work, back of phone is still nice, no cracks near charging port/speakers.

    The phone is unlocked by the network operator so will work with your sim.

    I have uploaded photos of the phone here: iPhone 3GS 16GB unlocked

    Note that when the photos were taken the phone was jailbroken. I will restore & wipe it prior to sale, ready for its next owner.
    Note that I may offer the phone on other threads since I see there is more than one applicable 'Wanted' thread.

    Reason for sale: upgraded.

    Price: £90+del
    Payment method: PPG or BT(FPS)

    Thanks for looking! :)

    Hi, thanks for the offer - too low for me though. The skin should come off ok. I took a BestSkinsEver off an iPad once without any real fuss.

    No problem - good luck with the search. Two comments I would like to make though, if you're still listening :):
    1) If you want to, you can point me to examples that demonstrate my price is out of kilter with the going rate for an item in the same condition - I may revise my price.
    2) I have (or rather, my other half has) an unlocked, black 16GB 3GS that I could let go for less since there are a couple of faults. a) The power button doesn't work (could be fixable but I never bothered since there's no need for it really - there are other ways to access the same functionality), and b) the vibration motor must be loose or something since it makes quite a rattly buzz when the phone is switched to silent using the slider. Let me know if you're interested in that and I can have a word with her. She would take my one on and I could sell her one.

    Offer of 90 GBP delivered accepted. Please let me know whether you want me to remove both front and rear skins. If it were me, I would remove the front but not the back as it still looks ok and gives the back protection and a nice glossy look - but it's your call. I will PM over payment details.

    Sorry to jump on thread, Joshm how much were you looking for the other 3gs with the faults?

    how bad is the rattle of the vibration motor?

    Mankam - is there any movement on price, considering the 16gig went for £70?

    Lemmy

    Would you happy to provide me with a £5 refund and I will still take the phone.
    Is the scratch very noticeable ? In the way of the screen?
