You save hundreds on taxes when trading in a car
You can get a good trade in price, you just have to negotiate with the dealer

I'll pass on this. I have always sold my older generation iPhones on eBay with pretty good success. Especially since I know I can get much more than $199 for my i5 than if I traded it in to Apple.

eBay too, even after the fees, one reason I never bothered with Gazelle either, they offer way less, but it is the ease of getting rid of your old device for Cash that people like.

Does anyone know what Apple charges to exchange an iPhone 3GS in Black with 8GB? I have one to sell but it has a flaky wifi, and Power/Sleep button doesn't work all the time, well most of the time, I have no use for it.

newsflash -- people like my dad, seniors, and other non-techies arent posting their phones on craigslist. they just want to go in every two years and come out w/ a new phone. if we they can get 50 or 100 bucks off, great.

I have sold many items and never had a problem.

You don't need a source if you're just speculating/guessing, which is what the OP was probably doing.

I just did a trade in at Best Buy last week with my 4s for a 5 and it was so convenient. I got $215 for it and my upgrade was $149 not including tax, I got the extra money on a Best Buy giftcard and was able to get some accessories for my phone.
