    Hi everyone, new here.

    I just have a quick question, how much do you think I could (should) sell my 4S for? I didnt buy it factory unlocked I bought it from AT&T but I am going to unlock it before I sell it. I just dont know where to start...Gazelle gave me an offer of 230 in Flawless condition, is that too low? Could I get more for it on ebay or something?

    Its in PERFECT condition, not a nick, scratch, or scuff on it.

    Savin up to buy to the 5 so I figured I would see how much I could get for this... :)

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Go to eBay and search for your model and then select the completed listings only box.

    I put mine up about a month ago and $400 was the highest offer I got (16gb white, perfect condition)

    Storage Capacity?

    Keep in mind if you have the original box and accessories your resale value will be higher.

    Also selling on eBay you have to minus 10% of the final sale for eBay fees.

    I would check your local craigslist's ads to see what they are going for in your area, then post an ad around the same price range.

    Just did that, they seem to going for alot...

    I also have a 16gb, Did you list on ebay? What did you start your bid at?

    I do believe I have the original box but I'm not really sure where the headphones went... and its a 16gb

    I put it on Kijiji, not sure if they have it in the States (or wherever you're selling).

    I set the price at $400, got a few lowballers, but one wanted to buy for $400. I think $350-$400 is doable. I didn't end up selling though lol although likely will mid December after my exams are done.

    In case u don't know, selling an iPhone in eBay attracts lots of (0) Zero transaction members and they will bid it up. Whether they end up paying is questionable.

    I sold my factory unlocked black iPhone (32GB) purchased by April 2012 in $690 USD in my country (Peru)
    Good deal since I paid $850 por the i5 at best buy.

    Same as anything else: check the comps. Look at comparable recent sales and you'll have your answer.
