Surely not via Apple ... You have to sell it by yourself and buy another one ....

Yes, you can trade it in at AT&T (and probably at Verizon, T-Mobile, & Sprint), Apple, & Best Buy. Trading it in won't get you a whole lot, though. As others have mentioned the best way to get the most money is to sell it yourself.

I believe most retailers like apple, vzw, att, bestbuy will take your old phone as trade in, though I suspect you'll not receive too much in return. You're better off selling it outright.

Put an ad on Craigslist that you want to trade your phone + cash for a bigger one. I've seen it a bunch. Lots of people get the 32 or 64 and realize they don't need that much.
