    I had 4S before.
    Now he looks so old and poor :)
    So that is? I'm going to put in the drawer for a long time?
    What other use for this phone are possible?
    I don't want to sell it, I want to keep it!
    But still use it... He is still working not bad, maybe I need to reset it, but he is still doing the job
    So what did you do with your old iPhone?

    I always sell mine. However, you could use it as an iPod Touch or maybe a remote for an AppleTV or other connected devices.

    I hand mine down to my daughter and sell hers. So she always has the 1 year old model and I sell the 2 year old model.

    But, there are times I wish I had kept a couple of them. Like the original iPhone and the 4. You could use it as an iPod Touch for the car, etc.

    You can use it as an iPod Touch or a backup if something happens to your iPhone 6...

    This is to the old ones…

    The obsolete ones…

    The laggy ones…

    The discarded ones…

    The unloved ones…

    Living in a dusty drawer ones…

    i gave my 4s iOS 7 to my mother. she loves it, she doesn't feel it's slow (it is actually still very usable) so she's happy.

    I always sell mine on Craigslist. Get the most value there. I sold my iPhone 5 a month ago for $300.

    If you don't want to sell it then I'd pass it down to a relative or something. I have an old 3GS that I sometimes use as a music player since I was able to load my whole iTunes on it with iTunes Match.

    You can still use it for all the non- phone functions like music or video player, remote control, camera, games, web browser, etc. It is essentially a hand held computer with considerable power.

    Download the manything app, it will turn your phone into a security camera that you can view from your new phone or iPad.
