Default Iphone4 32gb baseband 1.59.00 broken screen

(not sure if this is the best place to post this... but since its a pretty tech savvy forum i thought I would be able to get some good feedback)

So i was curious what I can get for my iphone.

It has a hairline crack on the screen but it is across, checked and it would cost approx 60$ to get it repaired so not sure if it is worth it.

The phone has the initial 1.59.00 baseband which can be software unlocked with a jailbroken 5.1.1 iOS on it

let me know,

thanks

You can probably get a couple hundred bucks at least for it. I'd fix it and sell it.

I'm not trying to be a smart-ass here but seriously it is worth what someone is wiling to pay for it. For myself, I would not pay one penny for an iPhone with a cracked screen. I have one and I know how hard it is to do any damage to that incredible screen so if it has a crack, to me that would mean that something pretty damn serious hit that sucker and most likely there is other damage.

I sold an iPhone 4 16GB on Craigslist today for $200. Get the screen fixed, then sell it. 32GB models are listed for $250-275 here.

Thanks SugarJ!

Thats what I am debating about the screen.

BeaveBender, Sincerely the one time the damned phone fell it got a "chip" like a windshield on the top part of the glass next to speaker and finally spread from that point all the way down ( i think it was cold or something).

Please tell me you are kidding, if you want tough look at Nokia phones. iPhones are brittle.

Without the screen fixed, probably about $100.
