How much is a faulty iPhone 3GS worth?

My iPhone 3GS is completely dead, but I figure someone might want to buy it and repair it. How much should I try to get?

I'd see if there is anything similar on ebay and then watch those auctions to see the final price.

That really depends. If the hardware is mint... and also on why it is 'dead'...
I've seen 'dead' ones go for £150 and for £25...
Have you had it checked in a repair shop?

Apple will replace a broken Iphone for £140, regardless of whether its been through the wash or dropped and regardless of warranty, that's why most broken phones go for the sameish price on ebay.

When you say Apple will replace it for £140! what do you get?
A New iPhone 3G or 3GS etc if the old phone was a 3G for instance?
Thanks

Youd get whatever phone you have (identical model and colour) and it would most likely be a used item with a new screen, back and battery. Hope this helps!

i looked on that - basically my iphone 3 i had it didnt download apps and they kept giving me faulty ones back im sure - like i only used it for calls and must have gotten it replaced like 6 times (at least) in that year which was ridiculous.

Then my volume stopped working completely and i rang itunes and they said they cant do anything my warranties run out but i was sure it hadnt

anyway then i just used it even though i have no idea why it stopped working

A few months a go I dropped it and the screen cracked and the on and off button does not work.

You can actually use it, its just basically the faults are the on and off button - sound and screen cracked.

But i used it still for a bit - its fine to use- like the volue not working means its on vibrate - or you can set to silent so the fact that it doesnt turn off is fine - i just charge it again and it turns on.

The crack is well i can see the screen find its just a cosmetic issue really.

They said they cant fix it at all - my mum said the warranty is still on according the the apple store at home - then when i came back they said they dont cover any cracked screens - but its not the worst cracked screen at all.

for over time warant do you have to basically pay 140 to get it fixed? im so stuck - is there anything i can do with this iphone???
