What to do with the old iPhone?

Advertisement
My wife is getting the new phone next week and I had planned on keeping my 3G. Since both phone numbers are eligible for an upgrade I'm thinking of getting one too but not sure what to do with the old one. I guess it could be used as a WiFi-only gadget like an iTouch. Is there any market for these used phones? It looks like some are sold on eBay for $100-$200.
