Can I sell my iPhone that's under a contract?

[ Edited ]

I am currently a year and eight months into my 3 year contract with my iPhone 4.

So basically, my plan was to sell my iPhone while keeping my contract (sim card),

and buy a new phone from ebay, etc to use my sim card in.

 

Am I allowed to sell just the iPhone, or is it bound to the contract so that I cannot sell it?

 

Thanks.

you can sell it sir. however, the phone will be locked to rogers. the buyer, then have the option to unlock/jailbreak it at his own will.

your contract however will still be showing that you have the iphone4 in your possession and everything stays the same.

go and post it in kijiji. good luck!

I have a question to add to this. I'm selling a 32GB 4S that's locked to Rogers. How much do you think I should list it for on Kijiji? It's in mint condition.

All depends. People often overprice on there in my opinion. I see people on there wanting $300+ for a 3G. Being locked will potentialy lower it's worth as one select people could buy.

If its mint, maybe 75% of its orig cost? That's my opinion.

A 32GB 4S's original cost is $749. 75% of that would be $562. As much as I'd love to be able to get that amount, I feel like that's too high.

You can sell it for around $450 -$500 if anything. That price is good to sell the 4S at.

Should I list it at $500 and then allow them to negotiate down to $450 or should I just go for $450 right away and be firm with it? I'm afraid of going too high because it might scare people away, but I don't want to sell it for below what I can get, either. There's also the option to not post any price in the listing and to negotiate when they message me.

 

Hmm, I'm not sure. I don't have any experience selling things on Kijiji (or anywhere else online, for that matter), so I'm not sure which strategy is best.
