Default What are rooted/s-off Verizon Ones going for?

Considering selling my One fairly soon and was wondering what the going rate is. Since as far as I know there isn't a current exploit I thought maybe being rooted/s-off might be worth something...

I think there's one on Swappa right around $325 when I checked a few days ago. Not sure if it sold or not. I'd bet you can get around $300 before they take out their fees. You'll probably be able to get more on Craigslist depending on where you're located.

I got mine about 2 months ago I think I paid 320 mine wasn't rooted either. I bet your right though I'm sure other people would pay top dollar for a rooted one!

Don't see them going for a premium price as someone has already said they have a root exploit for 4.4 2 but he won't release it till Aug. So not like the phone is locked down forever. But there are idiots that will always pay more for something

I picked mine up for $350 off Craigslist in LA. They're all going for around $350 here rooted or not. Highest I saw was 360, lowest 300.

Not much since the price of them dropped from $599 to $499. From what I see, an HTC One in good shape, maybe with a few extra accessories, can get you $400 or a little more or a little less, depending on if you have the original box/any scratches/phone and accessories in their packaging. Surprisingly I've seen HTC One Maxxs sell for $450 for ones that are in near perfect shape. With the taxes and fees that ebay and paypal add to the sellers, if you sold an HTC One for $400, you would really only see about $350 of that. I think it's a better deal if you can sell one locally, to either a friend or family member, possibly through friends on Facebook. Something that I am considering doing to my HTC One, so that I can upgrade to the HTC Maxx.

I have an HTC One that was S offed by Sonic with a java card. I have not seen any posted. I imagine that if I labeled it as " Being able to work on almost any carrier." I could probably fetch up to $450 or more for mine. With the right knowledge and understanding on this phone with it being S off / Unlocked / Rooted it really could work on any carrier. straight talk, AT&T, page plus, Viaero, Tmobile, and sprint, since I believe that it is also a worldwide phone that has all of the GSM and CDMA bands inside of it.

I didnt notice modded phones going for more. Thats part of the android experience learning the ins and outs of a new device.
