    Sadly.. it has a small scuff (or maybe it's a chip I'm not sure) on the bottom left of the phone. Other than that, the phone is in good condition. No scratches on screen or on the back, the obvious "scuff gate" on the sides (like specks of silver are on one side of the phone)

    What should I price this? I'm not sure how to upload a picture to show you that thing on the bottom left, if anyone could tell me how I'd be more than happy to show you guys.

    $500 OBO. Unlock it if you can, more resale value (unless its VZW and already unlocked)

    Most likely you'll get between $400-$450

    Locked: 360
    Unlocked: 380

    Because of the condition you described

    I would say about 380- due to the small scrape. Mine is selling for 460 MINT condition, but I was lucky because its getting unlocked by my carrier and its a silver one. Go $400 and if you don't get many replies, go to $380 firm.

    You don't want to low ball yourself too much. These phones are expensive and valuable.

    Wow, mines in near perfect condition, unlocked, and comes with an Otterbox case that's never been used and I can't seem to get rid of it for $350!

    I thought unlocking phones was illegal in America from some law they passed.

    This is true if you bought carrier-locked. You can have it carrier unlocked if you wish to go legit. Verizon iPhone 5/5 are GSM unlocked out of the box.

    I just bought a 32gb black just replaced from apple at 375 shipped. 400 only if you find a dumb person..... 300 seems a correct price to me, cause is damaged

    Look on ebay at the completed sales for a phone in your condition to get an idea of what people are willing to pay.
