    Before you eager beaver moderators jump all over this for being against forum rules, allow me to explain:

    I need all the money I can get from selling my Incredible on eBay in order to get the Thunderbolt at one year pricing. I can look at completed listings, but they range from $200-$400 for a used, like-new Dinc.

    So does anyone have experience in this area, what is a good amount to exprect from selling a like-new Droid Incredible with no scratches or cracks, 3500mAh extended battery and all the original stuff (manuals, disc, box)?

    If for some reason this still violates forum rules, let me know.

    requesting opinions/recommendations for a selling price is acceptable. however, for future posters, this is just a reminder that DF Policies do not allow for negotiations, offers, etc for buying/selling devices between members. thanks!

    its called a reserve price. you put the minimum amount that you want to get (say $300, and it doesn't stop there, it can keep going higher) that the bidder can not see. but the bidding starts at say $5 ( or what ever you want) but if it doesn't hit your reserve amount, the auction is null.

    if you do it the other way and just pull the listing at the last minuet your ebay account will be terminated after doing it more then 2 times. plus nobody wants to buy from someone who never actually sells their item.

    If you're selling on eBay, here's what I recommend. 1st play up the customization like your phone is better than the other Inc's out there. Take screenshots of your home screen. Then give a description of what is possible with the phone, i.e. free tendering, free turn by turn gps nav, free teleportation, etc, you get the drift. Next start bidding at $.01, set the length of the auction for minimum 7 days, and let the bidding begin! Also, I recommend actually starting the auction somewhere between 4pm and 9pm EST on a weekday. Most people have the time to march auctions on work computers, so by the end of the work day winning the auction would be the most exciting event for them. I sold a used Droid Eris with a blown speaker for $164 by playing up the rooting and Froyo.

    I hope it's okay to bump this slightly old thread, because I have a question on topic. I just got a new phone and I am looking to sell my Incredible.

    Am I able to sell it as is, or do I need to do something to make sure the buyer is not able to re-activate the phone on my account? I know to wipe the phone and SDCard as well.

    If you do a factory reset, format the sdcard, AND already switched your number to a new phone, then your old DInc is good to sell. The only way someone can activate the phone is to do *288 and enter the 10th digit phone number AND last 4 of their SSN#.

    You're good to go, player

    Sweet. Since I didn't have to do a *228 for the new phone, I forgot what the process was. Glad they won't have the necessary information.

    Thanks!
