I didn't realize you could get so much for the old phones....since the 5 is my first iPhone (iPad lover), I am learning about this for the future....my question is this, will the price you get for it drop a lot after the iPhone is available, or why did you see it before the 5 was out - why not wait until you have the new phone, making selling the old phone easier on your lifestyle?
Thanks for the info!

Obviously, when a new model comes out and they drop the price on the old models, you can't expect to get as much for your old device. That's why I went with Gazelle. The gave me a quote beforehand good for 30 days. The price has already dropped since then, but I'm getting the price they quoted two weeks ago, $180 for an iPhone 4 16GB. So I get to use it until the new one arrives and not worry about losing money.

Nope. We have a phone rotation plan in our house. 3 iPhones on our plan every year I get the new and pass down the old to my hubby. My daughter ten inherits my hubby's phone. It works out since my teenager has lost one iPhone and broken another. But we didn't mind cuz her phones are always 2 years old! Lol!
