    I got my phone on the Att Next plan. I got a 6 on launch day. Anyone care to guess how much I can sell my iPhone 6 for once the 6s plus is out? I'm trying to decide if I should sell it and get the plus since I do love the size of the plus. I plan to always pay per month since I will upgrade at least every two years. Just wondering how much I might be out if I do it. Someone must have calculated this to get an idea;).

    I just remembered I still have my 5. I could sell now and just wait for the new one. That might be a good plan.

    That's probably you're best bet. The phone has a better resale value now than it will after a new one comes out.

    My brother is doing exactly that. He just sold his 5S and is now waiting for a second hand 6 (to be bought after the 6S launch) with an older iPhone5.

    Move back into your 5 and sell the 6 for more money.

    The amount you get will also be based on color and storage size. I sold my Verizon 6 plus in May for around $800. It was a space grey 128gb model. AT&T models sell for less since they aren't unlocked but a good site to get an idea aside from ebay is swappa.com. It's where I've sold my last 3 phones.

    That's the best thing to do.

    So you have your phone through AT&T Next and you plan on selling it? Which is not a problem, but make sure you pay off the remaining balance of your 6 before you plan on buying the 6S Plus. Because if you are on AT&T Next and you try to upgrade, you have to turn in your phone to get a new one.

    I have both. On the fence about the form factor regarding the plus. All the negative bias towards the plus on this site is also hurting my appetite to keep it. It's too big for half of my jeans and sport jacket pockets. Will need to carry it.

    I'm in the same boat, I'm not happy with the 6+. Don't get me wrong its a good phone, but I think I'll a better user experience with the smaller phone. In a sense its more portable since it fits in clothes better.

    The only reason to bring the iPhone 6 plus, is battery, which the smaller and more portable 6 lacks after half a day of usage. It may be the only reason to keep it. I first bought the iPad mini hoping to bring it with me, but it ended up being used for recipes in the kitchen and as a pacifier for my kids :) Sold it this summer without remorse.

    The plus is fascinating and more pleasant in actual usage, but the form factor is simply too big for a wide range of clothing. Especially in the summertime with less pockets to fill. In the end you give up. You buy a belt clip or a purse.

    I guess it depends on the color and storage capacity of your iPhone. I posted mine on craigslist a week ago and I sold it for $650, which I think was a very good deal. Mine was 64gb in Space Gray. Always ask for more so if they ask you to bring down the price you have some wiggle room to negotiate the final price of your phone.

    I had the 6 and now the 6 plus. I can't decide. I even tried the 6 from my wife for a week again.
    I love typing on the 6 plus but hate it when I wear slacks, shorts, or jeans that have small pockets and then worry about my phone falling out all day.

    I wish the 5 inch rumor was true. Perfect compromise

    I almost got the note 4 but went with the plus. Did the lollipop kill the note 4?

    No, it was fine. Sammy locked the firmware making it very hard to root. It's still able, but a royal pain...lets just say, its not fun anymore- Android was a fad, the glitter is starting to shake loose!

    Oh ok. Well I'm not the rooting "one" but I understand your point for your experience. Once I heard about the lollipop upgrade I was quickly reminded about touch whiz. I at least thought the note 4 would still be taken care of even after the note 5/edge plus. Oh well. Sticking with Apple.
