    Was wondering... for older devices (in my case the iPhone 4), what services/businesses would you recommend for selling or donating old phones? Of course, the first thing that comes to mind for me is the iMore Marketplace (woohoo!), but I thought I'd poll you all to see if we can come up with a comprehensive list. Anything come to mind?

    I've used Gazelle with my past iDevices and always had a great experience with them. Recently used GameStop with my iPhone 5 and had a great experience with them as well.

    Recently GameStop changed their payouts for high end devices. They've been lowered quite a bit. For a 32GB iPhone 5S right now they're only offering $349 cash, which they were at one time offering for a 16GB iPhone 5. If you're going for the store credit though, it's a decent deal. I've sold almost all of my previous phone models on Craigslist. The value there is generally higher. If your'e willing to wait a few weeks to get paid, eBay is always a good option as well, as traditionally you make more money when selling there.

    I sold a 4S on amazon.com a little over a year ago for $440.00, (I paid $399.99 w/2 year contract) for it originally and a couple of months ago I sold my iPhone 5 for $600.00 (paid $399.99 w/2 year contract) so I would always recommend selling it on Amazon.

    Best place is the iMore marketplace, BUT as other have suggested auction sites like Ebay, Amazon, and Craigslist work well too, and I can add Swappa to that list. Although mainly an Android buying and selling service, they DO allow other devices. I listed my Lumia 822 there.

    I havent tried it with my iToy yet but i did with my Sprint Galaxy Nexus and Glyde gave 95 dollars when BestBuy would only give me 25. For me it was good because i got nearly 4 times as much as bestbuy would have given me and a little more than 3 times what Tmobile would have.

    Now-a-days, Various online sources are available for selling the iPhone's. Before we can sell the iPhone 4, Just look for various online stores and compare the price variation. Why because, Knowing the price variation is more helpful to get the best price for the iPhone 4. If anyone finds some other source for selling the iPhone at best price, Please share those details.
