As the new iPhone 5 is expected to come soon, owners of the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S might be tempted to sell their old device. Its understandable that most people would want to have the latest Apple gadget.
If one listens to the rumor mill, the new smartphone will come sporting a thinner look, a larger screen, & 4G LTE technology. Because of this, now might be the perfect time to sell your older device.
Popular electronic re-selling sites Gazelle and NextWorth indicate that iPhone sellers are quite popular and sought-after at the moment. Gazelles Chief Gadget Officer, Anthony Scarsella feels right now might be an ideal time to let go of your older iPhone.
A 16GB AT&T iPhone 4S in good condition still fetches $277 on Gazelle, or more than enough to defray the initial cost of buying a16GB AT&T iPhone 5 when it becomes available next month.
By analyzing the offer on both websites, it appears that the best place to sell your iPhone, is found on Gazelle. Differences in prices might be attributed to color, carrier and the state of the device but overall, interested sellers might get between $277 and $370 for the iPhone 4S, while owners of the iPhone 4 might get between $160 and $190.
Of course if sellers are willing to go though the hassle of interacting with buyers, Craiglist and eBay are also available options.
