    What's an unlocked Pearl worth?

    Advertisement



    I was hoping I could get some opinions here. Since a lot of people here seem to be extremely versed and knowledgeable with Pearls here goes.

    What do you think an UNLOCKED White Pearl would bring, or should bring, on the used market? Obviously condition matters but let's just say, just like new, will everything that originally came in the box and all original packaging.

    Do you think it pulls in more than a locked phone?

    Just curious to everyone's thoughts!!

    it will pull in more than a used locked phone since it can be used by any carrier and that opens up a larger buyers market for you.

    I'd say if your phone is used, boxed and all that good stuff, you'll get $250 maybe $275 for it.

    I usually get about that for all my phones that I have sold in the past. Usually a used phone (by the time you sell it) lose 1/2 their value.

    Cool cool, thanks for the info. It seems like there are very few around here. On my local metro area's craigslist there was only one and it was 375 bucks! Being that it's free to unlock I coulnd't see why the hell anyone would pay that type of money.

    I just called tmo and cingular and they told me they would send me the unlock codes on the quick. Didn't take much convincing!

    Sorry man, it was in brand new condition but I sold it within a day of unlocking it. Good luck on the hunt though.

    Has anyone had a success getting Rogers to unlock their phones recently?

    Need to use an external service provider to unlock the Roger phone - they will not provide any codes. Costs approx C$150 to unlock your phone - service available on eBay. Don't quite know its worth that price to get your phone unlocked !
