Three Ways To Sell Your iPhone Before Upgrading To A Newer Model

On September 10 Apple is expected to announce a new model of iPhone in its media event. While it may not be ready to hit store shelves immediately, it is likely that the next generation of iPhone will ship within the next following weeks.
So in case you want to sell your old iPhone and upgrade to a newer model which should be announced on September 10, we've got for you four ways to quickly sell your old iPhone where you will have the opportunity to purchase the new iPhone...

But remember, before selling your iPhone, you must make sure it is "Gently used iPhone" to make the strain on your pocketbook a bit easier…

1)eBay
Anything you want to sell can be done on eBay world's largest online stores that you can find just about anything you could ever want. From the mundane vintage purses to the most unusual pieces of toast with images of Jesus in them, you’ll find a plethora of goods and services.

So selling your iPhone on eBay can generate a lot of cash if you are willing to ship it overseas. In the U.S., there are not as many people still willing to buy an iPhone 3GS. But on eBay, you can make between $50 and $200 on one. If you have all of the original parts, including the box it came in, and your device still works, someone will buy it. If you offer a case and free shipping, you’ll get even more out of bidders.

As you can see in the picture above, a 16GB iPhone 4S is selling for around an average of $300 and a 16GB iPhone 5 is selling for about $350.

Some suggestions for getting a high price for your eBay auction include:
  • Offer free shipping (unless it is overseas)
  • Take good, close up pictures of your device, include pictures of the cables and box if you have them
  • If you are using a Buy It Now option, check competing prices and list yours accordingly
  • Only ship to confirmed addresses.
  • It may not be a bad idea to only accept PayPal
It is important to keep in mind that there are some people who will try to scam you. Speaking from personal experience, you should set buyer requirements when selling electronics on eBay. For example, you may not want to sell to someone who has only been a member for a few days.

The online electronics-purchasing store has been in business since 2008 and is reliable, convenient, and pays decent money, even for a broken device. If you are just trying to get rid of your phone and want some amount of money for your loss, but don’t want any hassle whatsoever you should look into Gazelle. They will tell you right away what your iPhone is worth. They will send you a box to ship it in if you don’t have one. They even pay the shipping cost.

The best part about Gazelle is that you can lock in your selling price today. If you’ve ever tried to sell your iPhone before, you know that those high prices you see on eBay and Craigslist go away pretty fast when a new model is announced. Gazelle will buy your phone a month from now for what they think it is worth today. That way, you can still use your device until you buy a new one and get the value you were quoted before Apple announced the new iPhone.

Currently, Gazelle is offering between $100 (broken device) and $190 (flawless device) for a16GB iPhone 4S and between $125 and $310 for a 16GB iPhone 5.

Another online electronics buying store is NextWorth. This company offers a similar package as Gazelle. They will take devices that are in great shape or terrible shape and pay you a decent price accordingly. However, NextWorth’s buying price is a little bit different. They offer you a price that is comparative to the current market trend.

Currently, NextWorth is offering between $59. 09 (cracked screen and does not power on) and $197 (powers on and no cracked screen) for a 16GB iPhone 4S and between $97. 87 and $340 for a 16GB iPhone 5.

Those three online stores are the perfect websites where you can have a chance to sell your old iPhone... Enjoy all and have a good luck selling your device..
