In the midst of trying to figure out what my cell phone bill will be these days, I'm also thinking about whether or not to get a new phone come September. I'd like to trade in my 64 gb iPhone 5, which is in very good condition (minimal wear and tear), and my research indicates that amazon provides the best prices. Sounds good, so far. But, when I've contacted amazon, I've gotten a range of responses, none of them a clear answer of how much they might offer. One representative suggested I name my own price and send in the phone; they'll respond as to how much they'll pay and if I don't like it, they'll send my phone back. Another suggested that if the item isn't on Amazon's trade in page right now, then they don't have an interest in a trade-in. Which makes no sense, either. I've looked at gazelle, and also selling it back to Verizon, but I'd like to try the amazon route since they seem to have the best prices. Any suggestions? (And I'd rather not be doing the reselling myself on eBay or Amazon myself). I'd keep this phone until September 2016 for the iPhone 7 but I figure at that point, I won't be getting much for it at all, and given that in either year, I'm buying an unsubsidized phone, I'd like to maximum the financial return. Thanks in advance for any insights.
