Did you sell your old iPhone to pay for the iPhone 5?
I sold my iPhone 4S on Thursday during the day to have the money to pay for a 5 and now using a very OLD Nexus One. It's rough but better than trying to go back to a Blackberry for the week.
If you did sell you phone, what phone are you using now?Late 2011 15" i7 Macbook Pro - - iPhone 5 64GB Black/Slate (VZW) - - iPad 4 32GB Black WiFi - - Apple TV 3

I sold it but won't make the transaction until next Friday...makes it nice when you have coworkers that want an iPhone but not the newest one and don't mind waiting until i get mine from UPS."Speed has never killed anyone; suddenly becoming stationary...that's what gets you." - Jeremy Clarkson

I was going to sell my SGS3 to offset the cost but ended up trading. My wife has a 4 and she wanted a 4S (mostly for Siri). So I was going to end up buying a 4s and them selling her 4 too. I was able to find someone who wanted to trade with a little cash on top so saved me a few steps and both of us got to upgrade.

I'm selling my 4 (Sprint) right now on eBay. It's in great condition. I'm hoping to get like 150 after the fees and everything if not more. (PM me if you know anyone that wants a link..lol *shameless self promotion) Does that sound pretty reasonable?
And of course, I scheduled it to end next Thursday night and I will be shipping it out to the buyer as soon as mine comes in.Twitter & Instagram = @billiber

i sold my iphone 4s 16 gb white at&t (but unlocked it through at&t customer service) for $450 with brand new untouched accessories (since i have so many old cords/chargers laying around)
also i sold it 2 weeks prior to september 12 announcement, i thought this was the best way to get every penny out of it. suffering 2 weeks with an old android is pretty good IMO.
oh and i had an upgrade available. so i preordered 16 gb white iphone 5 for 212.44+36(activation fee for at&t)=roughly $250 and another $50 will go to accessories. so i was able to save a $150

Yes, however, I can't vote in the poll as there is no choice for using the same model iPhone. I sold my Black 4S to Gazelle for $400 which covered the subsidized price of the 64GB iPhone 5. Now I am using my unlocked AT&T White iPhone 4S and trying to decide if I should sell this one to Gazelle as well for $400 once my new iPhone arrives. This way I can bank the money and use it next year, or the year after for a new iPhone.

I put my 64GB At&t 4S on craigslist for $450 and had a buyer withing 3 hours. We met at a Starbucks. Guy was really cool too. No fees or any of that crap with shipping. I drove 10 min from my house.Late 2011 15" i7 Macbook Pro - - iPhone 5 64GB Black/Slate (VZW) - - iPad 4 32GB Black WiFi - - Apple TV 3
