    I'm looking to sell it in the next week er so. I know its not worth much anymore, I waited too long but I might as well do it now. The screen is perfectly fine as far as I know, it had a screen protector on it since day one. It has the usual wear and tear you might expect, the apple logo has a noticeable scratch on it, but the damage I'm talking about is a hairline crack near the charging port. I have no idea how it got there or when but function wise its fine. Its jailbroken but should probably start from scratch to get any personal info off it.

    by the way, this is probably a stupid question but Ive never sold a phone before: Do I leave the sim card in or keep it?

    Also, not sure it matters but I do not have the box as it was originally a refurb.

    Where are the best places to sell them to get the most out of it?

    You might get £50-100 for it.

    Keep the sim.

    Try eBay or mobile phone recycling websites, the latter will be the lower price but less hassle. Don't worry about it being a refurb has the handset has long been out of warranty.

    Hi - why do you advise keeping the sim?
