I've considered selling my phones before to a company online (Amazon, Gazelle, etc) but my concern always was that once they receive it they will change the offer and try to screw you because now they have your phone hostage and will be more likely to take the lower offer. Anyone have that happen?

Sold my iP4 16Gig for $200. Put an extra $100 with it and got a 32Gig Black iP5! Just waiting on FedEx now!
I use an old Palm Centro that we use a back-up phone till it gets here. No Prob though. Just means my ipad will get even more action for a week or so.

...sold my sprint iPhone 4S white 16GB in mint conditions...original box/manuals/extra screen protector/case...for $375 on amazon marketplace. Buyer paid $380 with shipping. After amazon fees I got $350. I was totally satisfied with this. Pre-ordered my sprint iPhone 5 32GB black slate for $320. Not bad I say...glad iPhones have great resale value

I am giving my iPhone 4 to my dad. He has wanted one for awhile, but my parents hardly ever buy themselves anything. I figured instead of selling it and making money on it *yet* I would give it to him until the next upgrade comes up in Oct and then get him a 4S for $99. Then I can sell it or keep it as an iPod. Who knows really what I will end up doing with it.

I sold my 64gb for 450 on craigslist. Didnt wanna deal with ebay fees PLUS paypal fees. That company loves to double dip on fees. And i forgot about shpping hassle as well.
Now I am using my old android phone and it's the worse experience. That phone is slow as hell and reminds me how android just plain sucks comparing to ios.

I'm renting mine to a coworker. He sold his in anticipation of upgrading and realized after selling that he isn't eligible until December. He really doesn't want to keep using his old blackberry. When I get it back my dad is going to try it out. He has never had a smartphone so this way he doesn't need to extend his contract and lose his unlimited data.

Gazelle is giving me $150 for my iPhone 4 (which I only paid $199 for) .. and also only paid $199 for my iPhone 5. So, I'm really only out $50 plus tax. Switching from AT&T to Verizon, I won't be able to use my iPhone 4 anyway. Gazelle seemed like a more logical method vs. the eBay battle with finding someone to buy it, shipping it to them, and paying eBay and PayPal fees.
