    I sold my white 4S in July because I wanted to get the highest price for it,which was $375 because it was in like new condition but since the new iPhone release prices have dropped,I did get $200 for my 19 yr old daughters white 16gb 4S but it did have quit a few scratches, I sold it last week on eBay,if yours is in great condition you should be able to get around $250-$275,prices are always changing,just check what they are going for on ebay ,be sure to enter the correct color,memory and carrier and then price accordingly. Hope this info helps!

    Lets put it this way, ones on Ebay with $400 min & bid ending in next 10 minutes have zero bids.

    Have to get into the $325 range to see bids. (Yes, these are 64g 4S's)

    Amazon is buying them if you don't mind amazon credit, i got $365 for mine yesterday. (32GB)

    $675 isn't happening unless you find someone REALLY stupid. Good Deal? Bluntly, No.

    I sold an unlocked 4s 64gb a few days before i5 announcement for $500 on my local Craigslist. I think now they are going for about $350-400 depending on how fast you are trying to sell it.

    I sold mine for 475 on craigslist 2 days before the launch of the iPhone 5. Prices have tanked after the release though. You can probably get 375 or so now.

    If you have amazon credit, are they going to have the iphone 5 at upgrade pricing?

    I sold my black AT&T-locked 16GB for $350 on Thursday, September 20. The buyer was very aware that a new model was about to come out the day after.

    Huh, good thing I was able to sell mine before the launch -- my black, 64gb, unlocked 4S was sold for $650 on Labor Day. TBH I was hoping to sell for more, but I was in a hurry.

    your friend is crazy. you can buy a unsubsidized 64 gig iphone 5 for 850. a much better phone that will be worth a lot more in two years than a 4s.

    i just sold my iphone4 unlocked for 350.32gig

    I did the Amazon trade-in the day before the 5 was announced for $348 for a 16gb 4s. I think it is now around $270 for a 16gb, so I would check there if you want a gift card you may be able to sell

    For whatever reason, Gazelle offers seem relatively consistent.

    Before launch, you could sell your iPhone 4S there for $270, now you can get $240. Not much of a drop. Their backlog, however, is ridiculous at this point.

    What does Gizelle do with all these phones? Are they reselling them to individuals or companies etc?

    They don't give you a physical gift card.

    Hi @Sneakyfox here i would look contribute that the most important thing is to know how much your iPhone's worth, this is very very helpful way and can be comfortable refusing offers, while still maximizing your chance of finding a buyer. Movaluate’s price appraisal gives you a comprehensive analysis of the value of your iphone displaying it’s actual sale price distribution

    I sold my 16GB 4S on eBay less than a month ago and cleared $305 after fees. It greatly helped with the $449 pricetag of my iPhone 5.

    675 is crazy. The 16gb has the best resale value and I got 300 for mine with a year of AppleCare plus left. A 64gb I would say 350-375 on Craigslist. I use to sell on eBay for a living but never with things like phones when it's so easy to dispute a sale.
