iPhone 5 release date details: Where to sell old phone before new iPhone 5 hits
With new iPhone 5 release date rumors surfacing almost daily, many consumers want to know where to sell their iPhone 4S models for the best deal ahead of the new phone’s release. According to an August 16 Gizmodo report, the place to sell your old phone for the most money might shock you.
While there is no confirmed date, the anticipated iPhone 5 release date is September 12. If it’s not that day, it may be September 21. Whenever it happens, it is rapidly approaching, and many people want to get it, but they have an expensive iPhone 4S to sell in advance of buying the latest and greatest offering from Apple, which is rumored to have some enticing new features.
It seems that you can get the very best deal on ebay. This version of the iPhone, which includes Siri, is selling for $350 with “Buy it Now.” However, for phones that people are bidding on, they are going for as much as $400.
One of the worst deals for selling your iPhone 4S is at RadioShack. Phones in completely perfect condition will get $250. However, most phones aren’t considered perfect. RadioShack will give you as little as $73, which is way too low.
At Amazon, you can get gift cards ranging from $120 to $415 depending on your phone’s condition. However, to get the full amount, your phone has to be in mint condition, and you have to have your charger and packaging.
There are other ways to sell your iPhone 4S ahead of the iPhone 5 release date, but you will likely get less money. They are Craigslist (be careful), Gazelle, InstantSale, Buy My Tronics, and NextWorth. Of course, you will either get less money or have to deal with people coming to your house with Craigslist.
It’s very likely that the prices available for the phone will go down quickly, so if you want to sell, then you need to do it soon to get the very best deal.
