CASIO CZ-3000 for a used iPhone 3GS

There's a Casio CZ-3000 locally and the guy specifically said he would trade it for a iPhone 3GS.

I have a 3GS and it doesn't get much use... hardly use it as a phone and sometimes it just ruins my sleep with internet browsing so I usually "forget" to charge it so I can get some rest.

What would you guys do?

I know I'll miss filtraton but I hardly use it...

how much is a used iphone 3g, roughly 150$/€?
that is the max you should be spending for a CZ 3000.
but anyways i'd take a real synth over some "stupid" phone and the CZ-series is very underrated, i love the sound of it.

Thanks for the input!

Almost the same price ofcourse.
Plus my iPhone has the mute button dead and it's a bit used on the back but other than that works perfectly. So I imagine it's not in perfect shape so less than 150€..

As cheap as the CZ series go unfortunately I don't have that amount right now.

A friend has a CZ and I liked many of the sounds.. some interesting stuff in there.

I'm 60% on giving the iPhone up so anyone else regarding why I shouldn't get the CZ?

I can't think of any reason not to get a CZ, if it's a good enough deal. Very cool synths, if you dig in and do some programming.

The 3GS will be worthless within a couple of years while the CZ3000 will only retain or go up in value. And it's a synth which is way more valuable than some phone you only use for net surfing.
