Not sure what the going price is at the moment, but keep it high on your first try. If you don't sell, you can relist for free.

Don't know ..But I do know that you'll sell on eBay a lot better if you do not set a minimum limit bid in the beginning (you can still set a minimum "Reserve Price" for winning the item).

Most things I wanted to get rid of where listed that way starting with a $.99 bid and a 5-7 day bid period. It allows enough time for people to find your item and put it on their watch list when they see a $.99 price point. However, the real action does not start until a few minutes before the bid due date. You may not get as high a price as you want but you definitely sell the item. And setting a "Reserve Price" can guarantee you that you do not sell a $100 item for .$99 if enough people do not show up to the party.

ok. i went with a 5 day listing so that it gets up the list quicker. looking around most get bid into the $70's, people "buy it now" pricing is crazy though. Most are $110+, I'm at $95 with everything you get plus car chargers and gel cases with each phone. I think it's a steal.

Cheaper to list as a buy it now and let them get as much exposure as possible, then you'll be charged less by eBay when they do sell. Fee for auction is 9%, BIN anywhere from 6-10 depending on specificities, but usually a bit less than auction.

I'll use that tactic the 2nd time around if necessary.

Thanks for the info guys! this is my first time ever listing an item, always just bought stuff haha
