    Have an SE, have a 6s plus

    keeping SE,

    considering offloading 6s plus,

    have a 6s plus buyer lined up on craigslist for a good price amidst lots of lowballers ($480 for 64), wondering if I should wait to see if I like 7/7+ (7 32 for now since that's all I could preorder in stock launch day) before flipping

    especially since both are on 9.3.3 jailbroken, but i still wont be without a jailbreak device since I'll keep SE.

    WWYD?

    I sold my 64gb 6S for $600 (LOL @ the buyer) on craigslist last month. 4 months of warranty remaining,mint.

    I use my backup SE right now which I intend to keep as a backup.

    Will probably only be able to get $500 for my 64GB 6S+ since prices are dropping fairly quickly on Swappa.

    I'm also buying an SE to use as a backup (perhaps temporarily).

    Honestly, yeah it is. I'd be making a bit more with anything north of $450ish.

    No, but I wish I had. I was really expecting the loss of a headphone jack to be replaced with something significant other than just their "courage".

    Something along the lines of better audio quality or some great function. But we can't even charge and listen at the same time? Even if they had gotten rid of the Lighting cable and replaced it with USB-C I would have been happy with it.

    But no, I waited too long. In order to sell it now I'd have to take it in to Apple and pay to fix the screen and by the time I can make it there it'd be worth even less than it is now. What I plan on doing is upgrading to the 7 and letting my girlfriend take over the payments then I'll get a Nexus or a Note 7.

    I'll probably always keep my SE because
    a) I love it and its jailbroken (and will remain so, no OS upgrades until jailbreak follows)
    b) my cycle with 7 will not be the longest, this time I will sell it before the 8 hype fest kicks in to maximize resell-- will need SE as a backup even if I am glued to the newer phones

    Besides my SE, I also have a 6s Plus, which I will keep. I purchased the iPhone 7 4.7 outright and I am due for an upgrade this week, which I will pick up the 7 Plus.

    I sold my iPhone6s 16GB unlocked for $560. Currently rocking my SE. Patiently waiting for my 7 plus in jet black to arrive. Then I'm not sure if I should keep my SE as back up or sell it ... hmmm

    Yeah man ,I lucked out. Initially the sell went for $580. But as he was paying me he asked if he could keep one of the 20's, felt bad and took the $560. Lol

    Sold my 64gb 6s+ With Apple care + and to silicon cases for 600$ To my little brother

    Honestly the main reason I'm getting the 7 is because my brother really needed a phone...

    Same dilemma I'm having. I was planning on selling it when my JB 7+ arrived in a month. This SE is pretty small but it's a pretty good backup to the plus I'd say.

    My friend has an iPhone 6 Plus with Touch Disease.

    I inserted double sided tape between the logic board and the rear case to push the Touch ICs up against the logic board.

    The phone seems to be working for after that.

    She has subsequently sold the phone.

    iPhone 7+ JB is going for some stupid money on eBay. I wonder if the early birds are going to sell or keep their devices.

    The scalpers always price the preordered iPhones high. eBay is to dangerous to sell or buy iPhones with Paypal's extended six months coverage.

    I paid off my AT&T Next plan on my 64 GB gold SE and I am keeping it as a spare phone. (Will switch up every so often too) Starting new Next Plan for my JB 6+
