Full retail is $649 on it, so base it on that I'd say. I don't know why anyone would pay you more when they could just go buy it outright. However, they are in limited supply now so you might be able to get $650 or more depending on how bad someone wants one without waiting.

They are going for $800+ on ebay at the moment.

You should be able to get $650
People that cant find them in stock, those that want to use it unlocked since the Verizon version now works everywhere. Or even those that want to save $20-30 on taxes will get a break on price without waiting in line.

Its should be an easy and quick seller IMO.
Just be carefull with CL, there's tons of scammers and other shady things going on some times.
Meet at a safe public place and take your time with the transaction.
If the buyer doesnt feel right before when you talk via email or phone calls just move on to the next interested person.

Will you then pay the ETF on your contract for the 5?
No. He said above he's just going to be using his old cellphone.
He's just tied up to another 2 years with verizon and if he wasnt planning on switching carriers then mind as well get something out of it.

Good question.
It could get black listed if they report it lost or stolen.
Not sure how it would work if they cancell without paying the ETF or if their account gets turned off for not paying their monthly bill.
And I wonder if it does get blacklisted will it still work on AT&T and Tmobile or will it get blacklisted just on verizon?
