    Do what I did. Sell the 4S to Gazelle and purchase the 5 outright. It sucks but I feel it's worth it

    If on a family plan add another line and transfer the phone off it. Then add a "dumb phone" or "tablet".

    I do this every year. Buy the latest version outright then sell my older version on Craig's list.

    You can also sell your old phone on/ to Amazon. Amazon.com will give you the most straight up without having to worry about "selling" it. Only down side is it will be in the form of an Amazon.com gift card.

    Amazon.com current price examples:

    Verizon 4s (black)
    16gb - $370
    32gb - $425
    64gb - $460

    Verizon 4s (white)
    16gb - $375
    32gb - $430
    64gb - $470

    Gazelle prices stink but its cash.

    Verizon 4s (black or white)
    16gb - $200
    32gb - $225
    64gb - $252

    Extra words and explanation do not cost anything here.

    But, it appears you want to do what thousands have already done and discussed here over the past few days, week.

    Buy at full price.
    Buy and pay for 2nd line.
