    Selling my old one on craigslist, does this seem like a fair price or could I get more? It's in excellent shape with box, sync cable and power.

    If it were still for sale it would retail for $550 brand new out of contract.

    But granted it's used and the average user can initiate a contract for an iPhone 5 32Gb for $300, I'd say anything over $200 is fair.

    Actually i've had 4-5 offers within a few hrs of people wanting to meet. That's why I was wondering if I should go higher. Guess that's a good price though.

    I have it on eBay now. I listed it on CL for $300 but everyone wanted to give $200 or $225 so I said no thanks.

    An unlocked 4S is going for around $450 on ebay (32GB).

    Mine isn't unlocked. It also has a hairline crack on the screen when it fell out of a golf card, so I don't expect to get nearly that. I tried selling it a while ago before the damage and still only got $345 for it jailbroken and unlocked. I must be doing something wrong.

    Sold mine for $260 a week after the 5 came out. $250 right now sounds pretty good to me.

    I got $275 a week after the iPhone 5 came out.

    $250 is solid.

    It should go for a little more now than back then when you tried to sell it. The lowest point was around the beginning of October (right after iPhone 5 streeted). It's selling for $20 more now that the flurry of used 4S hitting the market has dried up a bit. I've purposely waited until this week to sell my 4S.

    Authorized unlocked iPhones also go for a little more than Gevey-unlocked iPhones (about $25 more).

    You'll also get higher prices through ebay than Craigslist due to the bidding war (especially if you sell internationally), although it becomes a wash after you factor in all the fees.

    All these small factors contribute to factory/authorized unlocked 4S selling for ~$461 used (for 32GB as of today) on ebay.

    Is it a GSM model? I listed my 32gb iphone 4 for $250 a few days ago and got plenty emails, but most thought it was GSM. Now that I changed the listing to say Verizon, I'm getting almost no inquiries D:

    I don't sell internationally. Too many risks with getting scammed. I hope I get $300 or so, which will pay for my iPhone 5 fully, but since I dropped it I doubt I get that for it. I set the reserve for at least $200. I'm at $150 now with over a day left on the auction and the price usually just jumps in the last hour or so of bidding.

    Sold mine on CL in NJ for $230, it was perfect with all original accessories still factory wrapped in original box and unlocked by ATT. Got a lot of hits for $250 but only one followthrough at $230 YMMV.

    I sold at 16GB for $250 2 days ago on Craigslist. Even had a knick in the corner and only came with the USB Cord/Charger

    Reserve price should really be about $50 below the average sold price. Otherwise, the bidding war will less intense as bidders know how to game the reserve price system.

    Not sure how much but right now iPhone 4's 16GB are going for 200-250. I just sold my white 4S 16GB w/ applecare+ and a brand new screen protector and case for $350.

    Yes, it's GSM. I met a buyer last night. 250 cash. He offered 200 but I told him I just listed it and had 10 people interested already so he paid full price. Best part is no Ebay fees!

    I'd price it at 250 and let them bargain you down to 225
