    Just wondering how many people sell their old iPhones before the release of the next version? I am thinking I will be selling my 6 plus in another weeks time to get more for my device before the new one is released, what about you?

    I hang on to mine for a while. I might give it to my wife or sell it for some other bauble/interest.

    All depends if I need the money to buy the new device. More often than not,that's the case for me. Plus I don't see the reason to hold onto older tech.

    I won't sell or trade my old 5 this time. Won't bring much anyways. Will keep for back up.

    Until recently I was a habitual phone switcher so I'd always sell my current device in order to get the next one. Reason? So my wife wouldn't care very much save for the fact that I didn't have iMessage anymore. Lol

    Happy wife... You know the rest

    I usually have it sold before the new iPhone hits my hands...last few times it's been to friends, and this year looks to be heading in the same direction.

    Mine goes to a family member. My 4s actually went to a friend who had dropped hers in her dog's water bowl.

    Possibly the worst place to sell your phone. You don't get not nearly the value of what you can get if you just try hard enough.

    I sold a 128GB Mint condition and used 6 Plus on Swappa for $760 last month. Look what what Gazelle gives you for that.

    I will not sell nor give my 6 even after I get the 6s plus. I will keep it for backup and try beta versions on it.

    I can certainly understand, but for me . . . the money is not as important as the lack of hassle.

    If you love throwing money away for no reason at all, Gazelle is a great outlet.

    Selling a phone on Gazelle is literally NO easier than selling a phone on eBay. As long as you're clear and honest about what you're selling and don't represent what you're selling on eBay inaccurately, it's completely stress free. And the funny part is, Gazelle is the same way...they'll make the experience a total PITA if you misrepresent what you're sending them vs. what you describe initially.

    it's currently my only phone, so yes, it's up to date. Needs a battery though.

    Like I said, the money is not my top priority. I've never had any problems with Gazelle, but I have had numerous issues (buying and selling) with eBay over the years. Moreover, Gazelle is a sponsor of MacBreak Weekly, and I like to support those that support people offering free content.

    I always sell either prior to receiving my new phone or relatively quickly after. I typically use Swappa in order to maximize resale or sell locally to someone I know. For those who use Gazelle, I'll gladly give you what they are offering. If you feel like throwing money away in that direction, I'm more than willing to profit off of that lol.

    I'm going to use my iPhone 6 for iOS betas and app testing after I get my 6s Plus. I will be selling my 2014 Moto X soon ( ) to fund the 6s Plus though.

    Most often I hold on to mine and always sell one of my previous model phones then get the next one. I typically have two phones at a time with one of them as a backup.

    There's a difference between enjoying convenience and simply throwing money away though...even if money isn't your top priority, I know you're not sitting around burning $100 bills just for fun, and that is exactly what you're doing with Gazelle. But if that floats your boat, by all means, keep doing it...or ship them out to some of the members here. Like Finn said, I'll gladly give you what Gazelle offers you, and then I'll turn around and recoup that cash with hardly any effort at all, and I'll let people like you pay for my new toys, lol.

    The sponsorship comment actually made me laugh, but hey, if that helps you sleep at night, all the better...lol.
