    Requires you to sometimes take a drive, but I've had great luck selling my old smartphones on CraigsList.

    I've sold phones on eBay, clist and the XDA marketplace. XDA was the easiest transaction but they have had a lot of issues with scammers lately and they is no seller protection if you get scammed. Craigslist was the biggest hassle, tons of calls/texts from people trying to lowball me...but in the the end yielded the most money. eBay is great because if you follow their rules you qualify for seller protection against the scammers but you have to hand over part of your loot. They all have their +/-, but I use eBay the most. Good luck.


    Cheers

    I have sold all my iPhones and iPads on Craigslist first day and for good money. eBay is highway robbery with their fees and then add on Paypal on top of that. Screw that.

    Sold on CL:

    2 - 3G's
    4 - 4's 2 blk 2 wht
    1 - iPad 1
    1 - iPad 2
    1 - Nook Color
    1 - Seadoo yes I said Seadoo

    I live in a city of 2,000,000 so I get tons of hits. Every one of the above sold first day.

    For all the fees ebay & paypal have though, i don't have time to deal with Craigslist. Filtering out morons like Blink (haha), responding to lowball counteroffers, spam, etc. If you do all that, then there's still the transaction itself where you have to meet up, hope the other person shows up, hope he brings enough cash, hope he doesn't want to scam or rob you, etc. That takes time that's worth much more than the fees ebay charges.

    List on ebay. Done. Drop off package at post office, done.
