-------------------------------------------
I'm planning buying a new iPhone but i'm not sure about the prices. I know this guy who sells unlocked/jailbroken iPhone.
Prices are:
New iPhone 3gs white 16gb - $530
New iPhone 3g black 8gb - $370
Refurbished iPhone 3g 8gb - $300 (was planning on buying this)

Are these fair prices?

They seem about right. But it depends on the condition and also if they're coming with a contract or not

But seeing that they're unlocked and jailbroken, that's not the case. I do highly suggest you check out eBay to see if you can find a cheaper option. Just be aware that they'll be used most of the time and not brand new.

What carrier are you wanting to use it on?

Like ZL said, check out Ebay for people selling their used iPhones. With the iPhone 4 out, a lot of people will be selling their old iphones to get the iphone 4.

I don't really trust those e-bay guys. This guy i know i can actually see what i'm getting, i guess i'll just buy it from him. Thanks a lot for the opinions.

Ironically, the Buyer gets way more protection than the seller when it comes to eBay. So, if they screw you over, you can file a complaint and you'll be sure to get your money back.
