    Their prices look very solid as well. Much better than Gazelles/Best Buys/Verizons.

    How do we know this isn't a scam? $510 for my iphone 4, pretty good. Though it is jailbroken and can be unlocked.

    that is a really good offer if you have something to get rid of, just did a check on an iphone 4 and they are offering $511 for a 32gb that is in excellent condition

    Well it is eBay and I would assume they can send the phone back if the condition is different/offer a different amount.

    I'm curious to see how this pans out. Though eBay is more reputable than others, the "norm" for services like this is to offer as much as 50% less than the original offer once the phone is received on the chance that the seller won't protest too much to deal with the hassle of exchanging it again.

    Craigslist is slammed with listings right now for Droids, etc. I usually sell my old phones in a matter of hours but not this time. A lot of VZW customers are flooding the market right now. The ebay offer for my original Droid is the best I've seen so far.

    This is the part that worries me the most: "If your device has no value and does not sell, we'll recycle it for FREE."

    No thanks, send it back to me for FREE.

    Honestly Droid X's are going on ebay near $300 right now, this is not a bad deal if you have an older phone but I may just list mine on Ebay see where it goes... although Ebay seller fee's are nuts right now.

    Well… I just printed out 2 labels (for 2@16gig 3GS's). $200 seems like a decent price. I'm sure I could get $30-$50 more each on craigslist but it really does not seem worth the hassle. I've been intending to sell them since last year. We’ll see how it shakes out.

    Just got that email. At least the $200 is guaranteed.
