    Wow you guys should have sold that phone long ago if you wanted any value out of it.

    Yeah, I suppose lots of people will now get an Android or Windows Phone smartphone (because people tend to get a new phone when their contract is up - and I don't think many will go for an iPhone 4S if they already own an iPhone 4).


    You can still get about $450 for a 32 GB iPhone 4. That'd be enough to get a 32 GB iPhone 4S for $299 on contract. You'd still 'earn' $150.

    When this phone came out it was the best of its time.

    Why would you pay for a 4S when you can wait 4-5 months for the new iPhone?

    I would suggest getting a prepaid phone for that remaining months.

    Perhaps the value of the iPhone is not always measured in the resale value. There might be other criteria for measuring "value".;)

    I totally agree. They hold their value anyway just goto the store and see how much the iPhone 3GS 8GB is selling for £319 !!!

    Fair enough but that's what they're worth !!! So it shows apple products hold their value

    iPhone 4 32GB sell for around $300-350 on Craigslist.

    iPhone 4s 32gb sell for $400-450 on Craigslist.

    Depends on your market. eBay prices you have to factor in 7-8% fees plus PayPal plus shipping plus the risks involved you arent sending it to some scam buyer.

    I was thinking from an European standpoint. €350 (almost $450) for an iPhone 4 32 GB is certainly possible. Perhaps even €400 (about $500) is possible. 7-8% fees? I have never heard of that (but that might be because eBay isn't that big at all in Europe).

    My point is: I am sure one can sell a 16 GB iPhone 4 for $200 and a 32 GB for $300. Enough to buy a brand new iPhone on contract without making any real loss.

    I suppose the European secondhand market is very different. €240 ($300) or €280 ($350) are prices literally no one would sell an iPhone 4 32 GB for (over here).

    Not a chance in hell of that. $300-$325 is what you'll get for it right now. $250-$275 for a 16gb.

    You can't even get $450 for a mint 16gb 4S right now. You'll get about $400 for that. Some are even going for $375.

    It just depends on what the person that's buying is willing to pay. I'm betting that if I get the battery replaced on my 16 GB iPhone 4 and to have the phone offically unlocked, I could get at least $300 for it...

    I don't think you can even get $300 now for the iPhone 4.

    Personally I dont care on what I would make IF I were to sell it. I was just saying I probably could get $300 for an unlocked iPhone 4 with a new battery, in decent condition, officially unlocked, and with my few accessories I have for it (cases, extra charger, ect). That would be a steal to me, at that price, officially unlocked with new battery and accessories, and without a contract...

    Right. Ok. I can still sell my iPhone 4 for £280, meaning I only pay around £220 when the next iPhone comes out.

    Good for us! Plus I recently jail broke my iPhone and put Siri on it to keep me busy for these last few months.

    Not reselling here. I've had my iPhone 4 since September 2010 and when the new iphone is released the 4 will become my backup phone if (heaven forbid) something happens to the new one.

    Happy Birthday to all of you guys iphone 4's!

    The iPhone 4 is quickly becoming the longest phone I've used before replacing. It's a champ.
