    I'm using Samsung Galaxy Ace for about 2weeks already and I'm vomiting blood every single time I touch it. It's so slow. laggy. glitchy. internet is like a snail. I can hardly read anything on it. Oh my... iPhone 4S spoilt me.

    Gazelle.com Baby!
    i just quoted my 4s 16 GB AT&T which looks almost flawless at Gazelle and they offered me $288 as opposed to Amazon where i can sell it with the battery case, jailbroken and unlocked for around $400 maybe more. (they have $370 for just the phone right now)
    am I missing something here or Amazon is simply a MUCH MUCH better place to sell your iphone??

    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?

    I don't ship off or get rid of something til the payment is in my hand (or account). Just one of my rules to live by.

    I'd rather rock the BlackBerry for a week over a Nexus One.
    I was using a BlackBerry 9700 for the weekend. I had to use the Nexus One, no email was killing me cause of the Stupid Blackberry data plans. No apps, email, web browsing made me wanna vomit.

    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 32gb black 4 for 265.00 on Craigslist a day after I put it up (Thursday). Turned around and bought the white 5 32gb for 269.99 Friday am. Worked out well.

    Gift card? I'm sorry I think I wasn't clear enough. I meant selling on amazon with a fixed price to the buyers, not selling it to amazon. I sell all my electronics through amazon. Less hassle than ebay and paypal, no pictures needed just have to come up with a good honest description. And than just have to transfer the money to your bank. That's all.

    None of the options fit. I used sellyourmac.com to get a quote fo $385 on my iphone 4S 64GB and bought an iPhone 5 for $399 (paid $14) and I get 14 days to mail it so I'm still able to use my 4S while I wait for the iPhone 5.

    That's actually not too bad for a 4 maybe 35-50 short. But their phone is off the market now so buyers will have to get what's out there. It only hurts of there are a flood of cheap ones.

    I sold through eBay Instant Sale... $400 for my white AT&T 64GB 4S. I don't have to have it there until 10/1. When you go through the signup process you indicate whether you would like to accept a lower offer or have them return it to you (free) if it's evaluated at less than what they offered you online. So really you have nothing to lose unless you're easily pressured and/or just want to get rid of your phone with a minimal amount of hassle.

    Get cash to buy your new iPhone

    I sold my white 4S 32GB for $350 Friday. I'm using my back up 3GS until I get my iPhone 5 Friday. Cant wait!!!!!!!! It's been an experience going from a 4S to a 3GS. It's amazing how slow this thing is compared to the 4S. It just shows how far the iPhone has come from 2009 to now.
    I'm rocking the 3GS as well after selling my 4S. It's a little rough to say the least. Tomorrow can't get here fast enough!

    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.
