3GS iPhones will be sold by SK Seven for 44,000 wons South Koreans (somewhere around R $ 150) in its original packaging and with all (also original) Apple accessories. As iPhones were stored for about nine years, they were all tested before being passed on to consumers. The operator did not inform, however, how many units it still has.
