What can I expect to sell my 16gb phone for at next release?
50-60% of its current value as long as it's in great condition.
There is going to be a lot of those sold over the coming 12 months which means it's never going to be a rare item.
And 5s $325-$375?
Is the 5 right now going for ~$350?
I don't know how much it costs in your local currency. So if that's 50-60% then yes.
Remember, this is just a ballpark figure. If the iPhone 6 is released and completely blows the 5, 5c & 5s out the water then it will make them worth less as they would be far less feature rich as an iPhone 6.
That seems a bit low. Maybe for a locked phone, since I sold my 64GB unlocked iPhone 5 for $650. That is MUCH more than 50-60%.
Similar to what the 4s is what right now.
You will get more of a premium for a 64GB phone, granted. But there are so many 16GB models for sale...
Is an ebay listing the best and easiest place to get the most amount of money?
Can't you just enjoy your 5c instead of worrying about selling it in 12 months?
I will I'm just doing calculations whether I should get T Mobile Jump program or buy full price and sell myself. I'm gonna return my ATT phone or just get this one ETF and unlocked, because it is much cheaper to just bring your own phone and then resell than to go with their Jump service
The jump program is a ripoff. Before I started buying and selling phones professionally, every year I would sell my old phone and pay for the new one. As an example, my friend this year used an upgrade to buy a 64gb 5S. 435$ or so after taxes. I sold his 64gb 5 for 500. After fees and shipping, he made 22$. The jump program charges you a monthly fee, and allows you to buy a subsidized phone when you give them your old phone. Great deal for the carriers, bad deal for you.
When you think about it, it'll essentially be a two year old device. Not to mention, the iPhone 6 will be a a big update; new looking phone, probably bigger screen, etc. so there will be plenty of people selling their 5 and 5S to get it.
1yr from now, I'd be shocked if you got more than ~$230 for it. The iPhone 5 will be going for $250~$300.
It's actually not that bad, considering it's only $10 a month. That includes insurance, so you're covered if your phone is lost, damaged, or stolen. How much does insurance cost by itself, like $7 ~$8? If you're already paying for insurance, paying an extra $2 a month to upgrade sooner is nothing to those that love having the newest tech.
I see your point but 10 dollars a month is 120$. Then you buy the phone at the subsidized price and give AT&T or whoever your phone. It would be better to sell your old phone and buy it yourself. You would save the 120. I get a new iPhone every year doing this. The iPhone has much higher resale than people think.
It's 22/mo a phone
10/mo for jump
So 32/mo x 12 is $384 for a year. Plus $70/mo service x 12 = $840. That's 1224. Plus 10% tax. That's 1346 a year.
Let's say next phone comes out in a year and you buy an unlocked 5c now.
That's 600 with tax. Then 70 a month service with 10 percent tax. That's 924. Those two are 1524$ for the year. Then whatever you sell your phone for gets deducted from that. You say you get 230 for the 5c? That's 1300. I might as well get the next plan and not have to dealt with it.
That's for one year
the 18 month figures are
2016 with jump
1860 buying your own upfront. MINUS the cost of what you sell it for. So much less.
So the important things for this calculation are, when will the 6 come out (1 year, 18 months, 2 year?) and how much will the 5c be sold for.
I think it's always a safer bet to just bring your own phone.
You really think it will go for $230? It's gotta be more
If this were the case it would be the worse I've seen for any iPhone. $230 a year from now? I'm gon say between $300 to $350. Even if it's looked at as a 2 year old device ... The 4s goes for more then 230 right now. So the 5c should be at $300 at least. That said I have seen iPhone 5's by the bucket load for $325 ... Therefore I can't see someone getting no more then $300 a year from now. I'd say between $250 to $300 tops.
That said the 5c is great so just enjoy it for now...
Exactly. But even your prices are a little low. We've been selling 4s's for 279.99
4's for 199.99 and I just sold another 5 16gb today for 415.00. My guess and it's just a guess at this point, is that the 5C will sell for higher than a 5 in the coming generation. This time next year I think 5C will be selling for between 375 and 450.
I was able to sell my wife's 16gb white iPhone 5 for $425 and a 32gb White 4S for $350.
I was able to unlock them both as well with one of those unlocking sites for like $1.99
I'm going by the market in my area, Los Angeles. I'm not sure where you live, but here the market is flooded with phones, so prices are low. Almost all 16GB 4Ss go for $200~$220
You can get iPhone 5 here for $350 or less. Next year, iPhone 5S will be $375~$450, no way the 5C will be that high, that's ridiculous. $450? That's only $100 dollars of the full retail price, no way anyone will pay that much for a 1 year old phone with 2 year old hardware. Let's get real. Maybe you live in a small market?
That's your problem, you're selling in a limited market. We sell on Amazon, eBay and through our website and to suppliers. We sell worldwide. Right now we're getting 420 for a 16gb 5. 500 for a 64gb 5. That phone is a year old. Now you and I know the 5C is already a year old but most others don't. They view it as a new phone. I'm thinking prices will hold on them for next year. At worst I think they'll sell for 350/380 respectably.
Yes I agree. I say your spot on. I just knew a 5c for $230 was way too cheap. I just sold a 4s for $280. I know a 5c will bring $300 to $350 this time next year ... At least
No more than 200.
