    So Verizon is offering me $200 for my 16gb 4s. That would make the16gb 5s upgrade pretty much free.

    Has anyone in the pas traded in their old phone when they upgraded?

    Any suggestions on better trade-in sites.

    I've never traded in a phone in the past either, but I know a few people that have used Amazon and Gazelle. I believe that Apple is also providing a trade-in service as well. Good luck!

    I recently used Gazelle. My 4s broke, and instead of paying $100+ to get the screen fixed, I decided to go with a 5. Gazelle paid me $100 for the phone. The process did take a couple of weeks from start to finish, but it allowed me to not go through the hassle of trying to sell a used, broken device on craigslist, ebay, etc.

    My wife did the upgrade to iPhone 5 via BestBuy a couple of months ago... walked in with a 16GB iPhone 4. Walked out with a 16GB iPhone 5. Out of pocket cost: $12.54.

    I have an offer of $335 from Gazelle for my 32GB iPhone 5... not going to sell it for that, but it’s a barometer of value. And you can always do better by selling it yourself on eBay or CraigsList...

    just checked Gazelle again and the offer is now $315...

    Yea, as shown by Fausty...Gazelle's prices fluctuate. A week before I sold my 4s to them, the price was 10 or 15 dollars higher. You can potentially sell for the highest price on your own (craigslist, ebay, etc), but it may take more work.
