    Who is crazy enough to trade them in for such a low price? Ebay it if you have to. You'll get 3x that amount...

    Gamestop is a rip off!! You can find way better deals on games from Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc. I honestly dont know how they stay in business. :confused:

    What do these companies do with the traded-in phones?

    Just seems like there would be a inane amount of people selling before a new release. Do they really sell that many previous generation phones? I guess I'm just different than other people. It blows my mind when people get the iPhone 4 today. It's that much closer to being "outdated." When I purchase items I'm concerned with longevity. Ironically, I get a new phone each year but in regard to a phone I'm concerned with maximizing resell value.
