    Not sure if everyone is aware, but Best Buy is offering(today only)the iPhone 5 free with a trade in of the 4 or 4s. This offer only goes for those with Verizon,AT&T,or Sprint,however.

    Really? Huge?

    So AT&T was giving you this deal, and now Best Buy is giving you $199 for an iPhone 4S... guaranteed that you’re getting the 16GB iPhone 5... and for a good condition 16GB iPhone 4S, you could easily get $250-$300 in CraigsList, eBay or other... sell the iPhone 4S privately and then wait for the iPhone 5s. Heck, even Gazelle is offering $205 for a "good" condition 16GB AT&T iPhone 4S...

    Sorry, Fausty. Wasn't trying to instigate anything. Just wanted to inform people in case they didn't know. My fiance made out good by trading her 4 in this morning.

    Didn’t say you were. You posted info about a "deal" that may interest some people...

    I was just pointing out that if you are willing to do the work (sell it yourself), you could do better. But everything in life costs something: time or money... so if you just want a "quick deal", this may be it...

    Well, I just posted the info, not the link. My fiance isn't much of a "do it yourself" person so Best Buy worked for her. Haha! Regardless, this probably isn't the best deal for someone with a 4s.

    Sorry if I offended - not my intent. I fixed my post to read "you posted info about a deal"... which, as we seem to agree, may not be the "best" deal, but certainly will be of interest to some...

    IMHO, it’s all good...

    Yeh i checked out this deal too and am going to have to agree with Fausty 100%. i know what my excellent condition 4S would bring but i did call my local BB and you still have to be upgradeable or they are just not going to just trade you and let your upgrade go if you are not eligible. Verizon who I am with would not go for that. They give you a $150.00 gift card that you can the use towards the $149.99 phone IP5. Again I agree though with Fausty and his theory.

    Out of all the iPhone 4 trade ins I've done I think I marked maybe one as perfect condition. It's very rare to see. Most people are rough on phones.

    My fiancee's 4 was in that rare "perfect" condition. Had a case,screen protector,and never dropped it. Eh, doesn't matter now as she is loving the 5.
