    I would have liked to use them as well but I read the bad reviews too :(

    I have a personal rule: once I see a certain amount of bad reviews to throw up red flags in my head, the deal is off. Doesn't matter if I see a few more good reviews later.

    I did the lock in offer with gazelle (4s good condition $225) until Oct 15th for peace of mind. They sent me out the box and if I find a better offer on Craigslist or elsewhere then I'll go that route. Amazon perhaps?

    If I find a better offer anywhere Paul I'll let you know :)

    $300 like new
    $270 good
    $201 acceptable

    I would not trust this company orangeoffer. They have way too many complaints online and on their BBB page. I am pretty sure this company operates under another name called celltradein.

    If anything I'd suggest sticking to the reliable companies with solid reputations, like gazelle, nextworth, buybackworld, amazon tradein.

    Check out best buy! I have gone thru them with both my iphone 4 and 4s. Got $300 for the 4 and $315 for the 4s. Yes I got a gift card, but I used it right then and there to pre-order the 4s-5 respectively. It gave me some extra money for a case and car charger! So no complaints for me... Well except being out of a phone for 2 weeks! But boy does that make a new phone just seem that much more special :) lol

    I guess Ill know soon enough...I "locked in" an offer at 290 on a 16gb 4s, and have shipped it to them and gotten notification that it was delivered.They had just emailed me this morning offering to extend the offer period another 5 days so i could ship it to them. Honestly if I get anywhere close to what they're offering im fine with it... Hell, I just wanna make sure it was delivered to the right place....LOL

    Well, actually have an update: My page now says that the unit has been checked in and is being tested. I actually talked to a guy on the phone, and he assured me that if UPS said the phone was there that it was. I even mentioned the bad reviews and he assured me that id have no issues, so we'll see... UPDATE: Got notification that the phone was fully processed and a check was mailed. Guess now we see if the check bounces..

    They Are Reliable

    I have sent phones in to them on numerous occasions and have received my money. Hope this helps!

    Sounds like a shill who signed up just to post a glowing review. Odds are he/she won't return.
