****Just so everyone knows, I traded my nexus and got me a new iPhone 4s. It's good to be back!

Other then Craigslist or eBay. I’m looking for a place to trade my Verizon Galaxy Nexus for an iPhone 4s. I looked for a FS/Trade section on this forum but i can’t find anything. I searched so please don’t flame me. I’m just looking for a good site to trade my phone if it’s either on this website or some other. Thanks!

Why not just SELL the Galaxy and then buy an Ip4s?

I want too sell it. But i cant get any local buyers and eBay/paypal takes a good chunk of money. I figured you guys would be my other best option :)

You're a newbie(as stated under your name). You have to post 500 posts before getting into the Marketplace section.

The gist is: YOU CAN'T sell it here because you don't have enough "history" (good posts). It's not allowed.

Yes, that's a real answer, that's why you couldn't find the marketplace forum.

As stated under "I Can't Post" in the FAQ

http://guides.macrumors.com/Help:MacRumors_FAQ#I_can.27t_post

Only users with a history of 250 posts (user title 6502 or higher) and membership for at least 6 months can access the Marketplace forum. Only users with a history of 100 posts can post in the Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum. If you start a "for sale" thread or political thread in another forum to avoid this rule, your thread will be deleted. Once you reach 100 or 250 posts, you may not immediately be able to post in these forums. The privilege is added automatically when the forum system does routine processing, so check again in a few hours. The delay is normal, so please do not contact us to report it as a problem on the same day that you reach 100 or 250 posts. When you first gain access to the Marketplace forum, you will see it in the Community section of the forums.

You could be a random guy, wanting to sell cheap stuff or knock offs and if the forum opens the marketplace to any new comers, it will be full of spam.

No offence here though

No offence taken. I can see why they set the rules as they are. to protect their members from idiots. But again thanks for all the comments. I saw an LTE Galaxy Nexus sell for $538 on eBay (shocked) so it seems that may be my best choice for now. Thanks again.

I just sold my nexus on Craig's and I'm in the LA area. Went back to my 4s. Good luck selling it they're going for cheap. I lost money selling mine... I guess people are catching wind of all the problems the nexus is plagued with. Love ICS but hated the hardware it's tied too.

If you don't mind me asking. How much did you get for your nexus?

Jan 16, 2012, 11:09 PM
I had it listed for a week at 500 kept getting offers of 400. Finally I caved and sold it for 400. Careful with eBay you could lose your phone and your money. Too many scams... Have you tried Craig's? Give it a shot. How much are you trying to get for it? Also did you experience awful battery life? Or bogged down web browsing while on wifi??

Ill put up an asking price of $500 and see where it takes me... but i found nothing wrong with the nexus. I hear bad and good. Most of the bad being horrable signal issues.

Quad core Androids will get even worse battery life without adding much. Games run just fine right now so I don't see the reason to leave the GN for a quad core phone with software that will never be updated.

So you are a professional in the Android market (and have inside info)? or are you simply speaking from a different orifice than the rest of us?
If you got real info, please share the details, I wanna know about the new phones coming out next month :)

Software can never advance if you don't continue to advance the hardware.

I agree though the gn won't get much cheaper then it is until the next nexus device. Vanilla ics is the best android option for me.

So you're saying you found an iPhone 4S eh? Where at? I just asked this exact question on Anandtech and haven't received a reply to it yet. I've never had an iPhone, but I have owned several iPod Touches, and I feel like it's finally time to get rid of Android once and for all and get an iPhone, but no one wants this Galaxy Nexus!

Someone contacted me on Craig's list. We met up at a Verizon wireless store and he bought an iPhone 4s while there and then traded me. So I got a new one. Couldn't pass it up. You can sell the GN on eBay for more then $500 if in mint condition. Good luck. You will like iOS. The iPhone 4s is much smoother then any android phone I ever Owned.

You don't know where to look :)

try androidcentral or xda-developers. you will have no issues selling them. Going rate is around $450-$500 for them depending on the condition and whats included.

$399 is a wrong phone buddy

I've tried Craigslist. I've tried the forums. I haven't tried eBay yet because at the moment, I have no other way of getting an iPhone 4S since I'm on an employee account and can't purchase one yet. >_<

Was I wrong in assuming that that the phone OP wanted to trade was the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G for Verizon?

I’m looking for a place to trade my Verizon Galaxy Nexus for an iPhone 4s.

I was just saying how lucky he was to get an iPhone as a trade, when the Nexus is now being offered for $99 on contract and $399 unlocked (assuming that the trader wanted to upgrade early). (Incorrect)

Perhaps the way I wrote that previous post was misleading; hopefully this one will clarify things! :)


NEVERMIND. Turns out that the link I had posted for the unlocked phone was in fact incorrect. MY BAD! :o
