    Outside of my 14 day return period and I want to know if I could trade in my 5C for store credit and then purchase 5S at the Apple Store. Not sure if anyone has done it yet. Thanks in advance.

    Not for Sprint honestly. I got a guy who's willing to buy it from me now for $250, but I'd rather trade in it and just grab a 5S.

    Sell it on eBay or Cragslist. You will get a lot more for it there. You could try asking them whether you can return the iPhone but buy another outside of the period. They may be nice...

    Don't you actually have 30 days? Or did sprint also change to the 14 day return model that makes no sense at all?

    Sprint is 14 days which is pretty crazy to me as well. I just spoke w/ a Appe rep via chat and I was advised I could visit a retail store to get credit. Hopefully they'll still have the Gold 16GB in 3 more hours.

    Just prefer to have the gold iPhone 5S. Not really a fan of the 5C green honestly.

    I would try eBay before trading it in. I just sold a sprint white 5 c there for $435.00. Average seems to be selling $350-400

    If you bought from Sprint - I would suggest visiting the store when I was a store manager 2 days missed return deadline I would accommodate the customer - it doesn't hurt to try

    Try going to different Sprint stores -- a manager somewhere might be nice enough. Also for next time, try to buy from Apple since they have a 30 day return period.

    GameStop is paying $286 cash for over the counter sales of a Sprint 16gb 5c, $360 store credit, according to their website:

    Try going to Apple and being nice about it. They might let you trade it in for store credit if they're feeling nice.

    Thank everyone for the great advice in this thread. Going forward my future iPhone purchases will be from Apple only. I just received a very generous offer from someone to purchase my 5C that I'm going to go ahead w/.
