    Anyone have experience with either of these companies? I am exploring ways to sell a couple of iPhones and they both seems to be reasonable options.

    However, Nextworth has some really negative reviews from different sites.

    Anyone have personal experience?

    i hate those companies. based on the fact that multiple carriers use the exact same handset, for example Verizon , T-mobile and Sprint on the 6s+ or AT&T , Verizon and T-mobile on the 6+, they should price all those carriers the same exact price, which is something they already do on iPads

    they should ask you what phone it is, the model # and the disk size and if its locked. they shouldn't ask you for the carrier. its irrelevant

    I like Swappa myself. I never heard if Nextworth, but Gazelle was decent, but you definitely get more money from Swappa.

    I can tell you that Gazelle has given me the agreed payment on every item I have sent them and one time they granted me more as the advertised worth had gone up. Never tried Nexworth or Swappa.

    I used MacofAllTrades to sell my MacBook Pro. The quote from them was far more than I received from anywhere else and was actually really close to what I wanted for the system for an outright cash sale locally or on the forum. They provided the price in less than 24 hours, a shipping label less than 24 hours after I agreed, and the money was in my PayPal account less than 2 business days after they received it.

    I've used Gazelle in the past as well and had no trouble. They were good for getting rid of older Apple products that weren't worth my time or aggravation to sell by other means.

    I've used gazelle before and they are so-so. I've had a negative experience before and have gone as far as reporting to BBB and had to resolve an issue that way (which they did resolve me issue). Since then I have not been using them and have been using buybackworld.

    I've used swappa before and they are great. One thing I don't like is how they try to low ball your offer.

    Ive used Gazelle. Everything is quick. As others have said. They are good if you just dont want to deal with selling something. I might try swappa for my 5s once my SE shows up.

    Used Swappa when I sold my 6 last fall and everything went well, will use again next time. I usually list on craigslist and swappa and whichever gets it first wins.

    The prices for all of the "trade in" sites has gotten worse and worse and is at the point it is ridiculous. IIRC, they are giving you $350 for a 64gb 6S.

    I agree. But it's also the price to pay for them doing all the work, selling and eliminating risk.

    Phones are one of the, if not the, most commonly scammed items, be it fleBay, Craigslist, or whatever. To a lot of people, the lower cash offers are worth it in order to mitigate any risk

    Those prices are still way cheaper than they have ever been in the past. I just sold my 64gb 6S for $550, and it sold within an hour. In the past I may get $550 on craigslist and $450 through gazelle. The current prices are a slap in the face.

    I've used BuyBackWorld and Amazon trade-in to sell or trade in my old iPhones and other Apple products. BuyBackWorld typically offers the best "cash" prices for iphones, macbooks, and other apple products that other sites like Gazelle don't even buy back. Amazon can sometimes beat their cash offer with gift card trade in credit. You may also get a couple more bucks by selling it yourself on ebay or craigslist, but that will require some work and risk of fraud.

    Have always had good luck with Gazelle. Began using them at a previous job where I was sending them a high volume of iPhones when the company replaced its equipment after 2 years. Always spot on and no problems.

    Does this mean they never screw up? No, but in my experience they've been solid which is why I continue to use them.
