None. If someone wants it jailbroken they will spend two minutes when they get it.

You are not going to get $200 for it for $30 more for a brand new one. Why would anyone want to spend $200 on a used one?

Cheapest I see is $185. Where do you get this $30 stuff?

Sorry, I can't seem to think today. I meant to say for $30 more.

$30 more than a new one.

I would advertise the sale in 2 ways. One not jailbroken and then offer a jailbroken one for a little high price.

On the other hand, if the phone is being purchased for use in a country that prohibits the Apple store, jailbreak is the only way to add apps to it.

Jailbreaking adds value to a phone, but he's talking about an iPod.

My bad. They use the same apps for the most part, though.

That's a little sketchy because then you're voiding to warranty, and having a warranty is a good selling factor, plus jailbreaking requires no money anyway, so it would either stay the same or lower the price/put of buyers. Most people don't really care about jailbreaking, unless you only plan on selling to geeky types, but if you're a geek then you know that you can do it yourself without paying extra for it.
