    Where is the best place you guys have found to sell used ipads/iphones and whatnot?

    I wanted to upgrade from the 32GB pro to the 128gb+cellular, so today I went ahead and ordered that. Now I want to go about selling my 32gb one (Not a big fan of eBay). So figured I would see if you guys know of any good sites?

    I have sold several IOS devices and have purchased a few on swappa.com. I have had good experiences buying and selling.

    Alright, I will check them out, and most likely post it up on that site. Had another member that was talking about it that I was just reading about.

    I've had a lot of luck selling on Craigslist. I've sold 2 iMacs, a macbook, multiple iPads and iPhones all at very good prices. I upgrade frequently! I find Apple products really hold their value. The trick to selling successfully on Craigslist (I've found) is: State in the ad that: You'll only respond to people who leave a phone number, you'll only accept cash, arrange to meet at a safe public place. I often stipulate at my "bank" (ie I deposit the money, they get the "I-Thing"). And, stick to these rules! I find that "legitimate" buyers respond very well to these type of "rules" (ie makes them feel safer too)....and you successfully weed out the con artist in the process.

    Yeah that is what I have done, I posted my iPad Air 2 on craigslist, in fact I lowered the price to 400 since at 450 not a peep from anyone, I got a few responses saying they were "interested" but never heard from them again

    Yeah that annoys me. I can't stand when they do that. Or the ones who just continue to offer real low prices every 10 minutes

    and I dont want to write them back and ask again if they want it because I will sound desperate so not sure what I should do..I have all week to sell this thing(want it sold so I can buy the new one, obviously dont want to buy the new one without selling the old one) but still, so annoying in the past these things would sell like hotcakes, now not so much
