    My wife is going to be upgrading her iPhone soon (she has a 4s)- not sure if she will get the 5s or the 6.

    I'm wondering how much do you think the value of the 4s will drop once the announcement of the 6 is made (likely this September).

    Do you think it might drop $50?

    I'm trying to figure out the best time to make the switch for her- as right now you can get a 5s $100 off. If Apple does come out with 2 versions again (the 4.6 and the 5.5 in screen), I could see them making the 5c the free phone and dropping the 5s like they did with the 5.

    Would you just wait and see how the cards fall in a couple of months or make the move now if she knows she is going to go with the 5s?

    Thanks for the advice.

    about how much the 3gs was worth when the 5 came out. not much. maybe $120 or so for a 16gb model.

    it's a 16 gb. Right now it seems they are going for about $150-$180 on Ebay. the 3gs comparison helps.

    It can likely be more given that the 4S is more robust at this point (with a dual core CPU and better GPU and retina and better camera and all that) than the 3 GS was when the 5 came out.

    How much is an ATT black iPhone 4S worth now? Where is the best place to sell? It's 32 GB and Pristine condition, original box, packing, accessories.

    I seem to be getting a few takers, close friends, for a Sprint 4S 32GB Black for $200, believe this or not. But, I can't sell until I get a 6. I need a phone for work.

    I was even thinking about purchasing a Gold 32GB 5S for $749 now making that $549 if I sell the 4S, but do I really want to spend another $749 in two months and keep the 5S as a keepsake? Answer: Probably not.

    $ 200 for an iPhone 4S 32 GB sounds overpriced to me anyway. Is that realistic?
