    No offense to anyone but I think some of y'all are asking WAY to much for used iPhone 5s. Even if they are in excellent condition, $430-700 ( even with cases, headphones etc) is rip off. Who in their right mind would pay that much for an iphone 5 or 5S when they could just use that money to buy an iPhone 6 or 6+?

    If I am not mistaken, you can get iphone 5S next to nothing now with carrier contract renewals etc.
    some people dont want a contract, for example some have older plans that are better then new ones and if they upgrade they lose it. I had someone willing buy mine for 400 untill i found out that walmart and verizon only two places i have hear to buy a iphone said they are only getting about 6 in at walmart, and verizon said maybe 12. i declined it sadly i was going sell it. some people dont care about price if they dont sign contract. if they bought a iphone 6 on contract it would cost them around 200, and they have to have there contracted updated.

    Does anyone recycle their phone through Apple? Thinking of taking their gift card and getting a Bose Bluetooth speaker for free. Avoid the hassle.

    I think I will just turn my 4s into Verizon for the $200... doubt I can get more than that for that model. Well, its not $200 cash, I think they give you verizon cards to use to pay your bill. So they Get. It. Right. Back.

    Idiotic. So much so that explaining it would probably get lost with you.

    On a side note I finally sold my 5S today. Guy showed up at my carrier store to check it against blacklists, etc. And did try bargaining me down. I held my temper and thanked him for his interest and walked off. He stopped me halfway and said he would pay me my asking. I was almost tempted to say I was not interested in selling it to him but I took the cash and moved on. CL... Ugh.

    I'm doing that and using the amount to go towards the iPhone 6.

    Me too. I currently have a carrier locked gold 5s priced at $400 because it has Apple care + on CL and I keep getting low ballers like $350 and $325. I was about to sell it on Sunday until the person messaged me saying they no longer had the money because their bank used it to pay some bills or something like that. If this keeps happening I will sell it on Swappa. At least that way I'll know for sure if the money I'm receiving will be real or not.

    430-700 is a huge range, but 430 for an unlocked GSM 16gb iPhone 5S is kind a good deal in my opinion, keep in mind many of these phones end up in other countries where the iPhone 6 isn't available so these " old phones " still have a lot of value in them.

    I just got $425 for an unlocked 32GB AT&T iPhone 5S. Met the buyer at the local AT&T store. He left with a phone, I walked out with cash.

    Originally I was asking $450 with another year of AC+. We agreed on $425 without the AC+, so I have a refund of about $45 coming from Apple, too.

    I was gonna sell my gold 5s but instead gave it to my mom and took her 5.

    I sold her 5 for $300 I would've gotten more for my 5s but she really wanted an s so I traded her.

    She really didn't want a bigger phone but I still did her upgrade and am gonna sell the 6 we got at a discount.
