    Usually craigslist since the market in the SF Bay Area is generally good. I usually do not try and get absolute top dollar...just a little over what it will cost for the upgrade price of the new one plus a little extra for a case or something. I usually am able to flip it within 2 days.

    In india, I have used quikr.com and olx.com with good results. These are buyer-seller platforms like craigslist.
    Then there is a company that buys outright depending on the condition and gives cash called sahivalue dot com. I have sold my 1st gen ipad to them.

    I only sell my phones if i'm not using them AND a friend or relative is interested in buying. (for a lower price than the market anyway )

    I give my phone to the local retailer from whom I pick up my new iPhone. And he gives me good $$$

    There are second hand phone shops near my house that are willing to buy my iPhones at a decent price. My 32gb 4s fetched enough to cover the contract price of a 32gb 5s (though I went with the 64gb version). Could I have gotten a better deal online? Perhaps, but this was cash on the spot, saves me the hassle of waiting.

    Usually I sell it to someone I know that is willing to buy it for a bit less than what I would post it on CL for. I really hate receiving call after call when I put something up on there and having to manage my google voice account. I'm keeping my 5S even when I get my next iPhone.

    I have used eBay, Craigslist and Swappa in the past. Most recently Swappa with very good success. Now that my kids are getting older I think we will be passing phones down. We will be replacing a 5s, 5 and a 4s in December. We have not decided how it will work out yet.

    I did Gazelle last year and I will likely do that again this year. I don't mess with Ebay or Craigslist, I just don't trust either. I had planned for my husband to take this 5S but he doesn't want a new phone. So unless someone needs to buy one within the family, which I doubt, I will likely just do Gazelle again.

    I'll probably sell my 5s on Craigslist. I've sold phones on there for years without issue.

    I traded my 5 for the 5s at the Apple Store, wasn't a good idea financially but of course hassle free.

    For Utah, Nevada, Idaho, and Wyoming the is KSL Classifieds. It's similar to Craig's List. I sell there a lot (sell quick for very reasonable prices $600 for 64 GB iP5) or on Amazon ($800 for iPad Air 128GB Cellular)

    I use ebay and craigslist and if sells on craigslist first I end the auction. If you do ebay don't be afraid of international shipping just watch certain countries and check feedback but I usually make 20% more.

    This is also what I"ve done in the past or give it to a less fortunate family member or friend. This go round I'm going to keep my Gold 5s.
