    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 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.

    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 also used eBay instant sale. Got $200 for my vzw 32gb iPhone 4.

    Just sold my 32gb 4S for 445. Now just one more to sell and pick up 2 5's tomorrow which I think will be highly unlikely.

    Hmm. With prices like these, I may just have to sell my 32 gig 4s.

    Is 450$ a good price point for a 32GB 4S ?

    Depending on how bad you want to sell it. I had to drop my 32gb 4S to $350 to even get hits.

    Should be...but now that iPhone 5 is out I believe prices on used iPhones will come down a lil...I sold mine on amazon. With eBay you pay eBay/PayPal feels. On amazon it sold in like 2 hrs this past Monday.

    I "sold" my 16gb 4s to Amazon for a $415 gift card a week ago but there was a grace period to send so I got to wait until my 5 got here.

    Ended up getting $182.50 after fees from eBay for my iPhone 4 32gb. It was a little beat up, so I was happy to get that for it.

    I sold 1 White 32GB 4S and 1 White 16GB 4S - both in near flawless condition for $725 to the same guy. Maybe could have gotten a little more but the convenience of this sale was a no brainer for me.

    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!

    I sold my 16gig iPhone 4S for 250 on craigslist yesterday. Wasn't looking for maximum profit just enough to cover what I paid for the phone and the case for it.
