    If you already own the 5, why go back to the 4S?

    I love my 4S, I really do. But I don't think I would go back to it if I had a newer iPhone.

    Not what so ever... Why would you do that...

    iPhone 5 can be factory unlocked for less than $10

    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 agree with you, just want to point out that 32GB iPhone 4S' are still selling for $500 on Craigslist/ebay, etc. Not to mention their retail price of $549.

    I'm not saying that it's a deal, just correcting.

    Oh please...really do tell me where I can get it unlocked for iPhone 5. I'm not being sarcastic here. I really want to know how for UNDER 10 bucks.

    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.

    Really? You think the 4S is that bad?

    I wouldnt trade a 5 for a 4S, but I would trade a 5 for 2 4S. :confused:

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    Hey I'm going to give you my outdated not unlocked iPhone and $150 for your brand new iPhone 5 which can easily see for $800.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

    Again, the 4S is unlocked. An unlocked 32gb 4S is still being sold for $500+ on eBay, Craigslist. Retail price for a 16gb 4S is $549 (and that's a 16, not a 32gb like the one we're talking about) $500+150 = $650. A 16gb iPhone 5 retails for $650.

    Stop acting like the dude is being offered an original iPhone for his iPhone 5.

    Not saying he should take the deal, but seriously guys. Actually think about it. The 5 is essentially a 4" 4S with LTE and a little bump up in performance. The 4S isn't "outdated" yet. It's still a speedy dual core phone with just as many capabilities as the 5. It's the previous generation model, just released over a year ago. Let's be real.

    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.

    ----------

    Unlock fusion on ebay.

    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.
