Thats actually a really good price IMO. I recently got 200$ for an iPhone 4 that i traded in at GameStop.

It's cheap because it's only CDMA and can only be used on Verizon. It doesn't have a GSM radio and SIM card.

That's not cheap, it's a terrible price for an iPhone 4 specially that is CDMA. Search on Craiglist or eBay, you'll find better prices there I have bought a couple of GSM iPhone 4 from Craiglist for $150 for family members.

As the iP4 is an older model, getting one brand new, mint in the box might be worth a few extra dollars vs picking off one on Craig's list you don't know the history of.

That is, if you have your heart set on an iP4 anyways...

Why don't you try the 4S? Also, $277 is kind of steep for a 2 year old phone. Try different sites like Glyde. Here's a 32GB for $215.

I'd highly suggest an iPhone 4S, not a 4. Seems that many have forgotten about the Antennagate Debacle. Out of the five iPhone 4 models I bought upon its release, only one was capable of making phone calls. That was a nightmare year, the absolute worst of the iPhones to date.

Fortunately Apple woke up, hired a bunch of antenna engineers and they made sure the 4S was a reliable functioning phone. That plus many other improvements made the 4S my favorite iPhone. In fact had I known the iP5 would be saddled with this odd elongated, narrow display... I would have happily kept my 4S and passed on the 5.

Definitely overpriced.

Not sure where you live, but here in Los Angeles you can get a Sprint/VZ 16GB 4S for about $250

I'd be looking to get a 4S, a 4 is slow and will get slower with ios7.

I use a 4 and reception is fine and it doesn't warp or bend like its big brother 5 which is fixing to be outdated ( so called ) by a 5s. Good phone unless you a teck geek who doesn't get laid and needs latest mass produced crap

The point is that the iPhone 4 has a relatively short support life ahead of it compared to even the 4S. Which is fine as long as you're aware of it. If the OP can find a 4S for the same price or a bit more, it would be worth it. Choosing to buy a newer iPhone doesn't make you "a teck geek who doesn't get laid and needs latest mass produced crap", as you put it.

And very few people have actually had problems with the iPhone 5 bending. Less people than those who experienced reception issues with the iPhone 4, I'm sure. If iPhone 4 reception is fine (which it generally is), then so is the "bending" in the iPhone 5.
