iPhone 5 trade for iPhone 4S + $150?

His 4S is 32gb and factory unlocked

Mine is 16gb

Worth it?

His iPhone: $350. (+$150.)

Your iPhone: $700. - $800.

(eBay closed prices as of today.)

I wouldn't do it.

Unless you need the additional capacity, I wouldn't do it.

I wouldn't trade my 5 for two iPhone 4S.

If I was the one with the 4S and $150, I would trade for a 5 in a heartbeat, cause I feel I would be getting the better end of the deal.

Hell no. I got offered an S3 + $250 cash here in Boston for my 16gb iP5.

There are tons of ads up here for people with 4S wanting to trade up to an S3. They said 4S plus $100 cash, so OP should be getting closer to $300-350 cash on top for the trade

Hey I'm going to give you my outdated not unlocked iPhone and $150 for your brand new iPhone 5 which can easily see for $800.
Does that sound fair to you?

Exactly.
You can unlock any AT&T iphone for $2-3 now on ebay.
Unlocked or not doesnt mean as much now with all these imei unlocks available.

Blowfish unlocks is MUCH better. Many times, unlock fusion goes over the promised 24 hours and plus they don't do weekends usually. I think it's powerseller2006 or swatblade. Just search for iPhone unlock code and it's the one with the picture of the bouncer with sunglasses in the black shirt. They usually do 2-3 hours anytime during the day.
