It should hold its value. Don’t sell cheap. The value of the old one is still high for people that live outside 3G coverage (and don’t have GPS as a must-have). And if I wanted it for non-AT&T usage, it’s valuable to me because I don’t have to pay the high cost on the 3G for the non-contract version!

Jason Kottke will tell you that 8GB iPhones are going for ~$400 and 16GB models for nigh $500. The ability to unlock to use on other carriers is a key differentiator (like @Mangus said) that people are willing to pay a premium for.

And the Macalope is having a hard time feeling like a sucker for paying the full, initial release price, what with the retained value all this time.

Original iPhone owners who prefer not to give away or sell their old iPhones after upgrading to an iPhone 3G can instead keep their devices and use them as WiFi-enabled iPods, AT&T has confirmed.

of course you can keep your old iPhone. You bought it!

I sold mine for $340 on craigslist a few weeks ago (days before the announcement)... At the time, I thought I got a great deal. Now I realize it was okay, but foolishly early.
