    I sold my slightly scratched iPhone 4 to eBay Instant Sale a few weeks ago. I had a couple scratches on it, so I expected to get $280 for it. Instead, I got the full $357! Thanks eBay!

    No. It's about the only safe way to sell an iPhone or any expensive on item on eBay these days. Your selling it directly to ebay. They give you a shipping label and you send it in. Once they verify the condition they deposit the money into your account. Basically the same set-up as Gazelle. You make a little less but it's basically risk free and not near the frustration.

    I've sold numerous phones and gotten exactly what they offered me. I'd rather take a cut in the money I made then sell it and get rolled over by someone on ebay.

    Hmmm that's a good price I did the same with Amazon and got $301 for my 4 and $103 for a 3G.

    Probably would have been better if you posted this a couple of weeks ago since their prices have dropped by almost half.

    I just got my confirmation email, and I was surprised at the extra cash that was tacked on. Whatever, that cash is already gone into Steam for Modern Warfare 3 (haters: I already preordered Battlefield 3). :D

    I got the $357 deposited into my account today too for a 32gb iPhone 4 AT&T. Was actually thinking they were gonna deny me my cash cause of how long it was taking them.

    i tried them, but they 'claimed' my phone was "visibly damaged" after originally offering 370 for the phone. it had been in a case and skin since purchase less than 2mos ago, and I know for 100% fact there were no scratches nor wear. they re-offered 270 or some lowball number, i declined, then they reoffered to buy it at 320 on saturday. i accepted their offer via email, then received the phone monday morning. i called to explain & voice my displeasure of how this went down, but they said they "weren't sure what happened" and that i'd have to resubmit my phone if i wanted them to buy it. as someone has said already - they're only offering 220 now.

    not impressed with them at all

    I originally submitted it based on a price of $317. When they got it they adjusted it to $252... I wasn't thrilled but took it anyway.. I got the money deposited tonight.

    I had a HORRIBLE experience with alltechwholesale (Ebay instant sale) 3 weeks ago. I sent mine in, phone was in great shape, even the accessories were still wrapped in plastic. Offer on Ebay was $357.50 offer. They offered 152.75. Reported them to Ebay and they said they would look into them but have not heard anything back. I did get my phone back. I WAS SO PISSED.

    I thought my iPhone was in pretty good condition. It had been in a case since day 1. They offered me $70 for my 32GB 3GS.

    I received $280 for my 32GB IP4. Not bad for the condition it was in!

    I can't wait to get my 4S. This 3GS isn't working out.

    What's wrong with just selling on eBay? I was planning on selling the components of my Windows PC on eBay...

    I wasn't either. Same scenario. In case entire time, no scratches I could see under florescent lighting and had everything including unused headphones. They pulled that same crap with me and offered $276 for a 32GB one :eek:

    I went on craigslist and sold it for $375 about a week and a half after the 4S went up for pre-order. You can still fetch around $325 - $350 easily for it.

    I just got paid from eBay Instant Sale. I said it was in good not excellent condition, and got 288 dollars. I probably should of just said it was in excellent condition for a small chance I could have got paid more.

    Interesting enough they said it would take up to two weeks to get paid. It had been two weeks and I emailed them about it, then 13 minutes later the funds were deposited.

    sounds like ebay is doing an online PAWN shop business... sound like a good idea... but the transaction cost is very high...

    I had terrible experience with ebay before... they do whatever they want and everything is for their benefit only... so i never deal with ebay again .... hate it

    ebay instant sale worked perfectly for me.
    My phone was in mint condition so they did not dispute that.
    The whole process took about 7 days.
    I'm satisfied.

    Get the feeling this is spam, since I've seen the exact same thing posted in another thread, and the website you're directing to looks very shady.

    sweetbrat, what are you talking about? They use Comic Sans. Don't you know "they" only let super legit sites use that?...

    Of course, because Comic Sans is an extremely professional font. As a graphic designer, I make sure to use it in all of my work. That must be why my clients love me so much ;)

    Nice. Do they give you more if it has a skin on it?
