    I keep boxes to most electronics
    So do I. I have a ridiculous collection. Usually keep them for a few years at least.

    I have to have the boxes of course, they are arguably the best looking packaging of all of tech...

    I think most people here on iMore forum will keep the box. Those who don't, will hardly show up on any "Apple Forum", cause they "just don't care". My guess. I do keep the box btw.

    Always. Even though I don't plan to sell the phone, when I switch between this and one of my android phones, it's nice to keep the iPhone on the original box so when I go back to get it, I have a nice little unboxing again.

    I keep the box so that when I sell my device, it can come with it.

    I'm really bad for keeping boxes. I even keep the boxes for phone or tablet cases. As a matter of fact, I just (finally) threw out some boxes last week that I had for electronics I bought back in 2000. I still have the box for a Mitsubishi VCR I bought back in '95 even though I don't have the machine anymore. I really should get rid of that one. I'm the same way with manuals.

    I always keep all the boxes. Add a good re sell value plus it adds more trust to the buyer that the device is not stolen or anything. Here is my stash

    I forgot to mention that when I sell or trade in a device, I put everything back into the original box. Plus, I make sure to keep my devices in like new to new condition. So far it's working well for my iPhone 5s compared to the 5 I had because there are no scratches on the phone itself.

    I keep the boxes! They look cool if you set them up in your office or wherever, plus when it's time to sell, you get more money for it.
