    I have a friend who has the iPhone 7 Plus (black, 128) who is willing to sell it to me for $400. Excellent condition. I currently have the 6 Plus and was just wanting some thoughts/opinions on if you would jump on this or wait it out until the new iPhone8EditionPro Product (red) comes out.

    Is 400 dollars a big deal for you in this short amount of time before the 8 comes out?

    At the moment, no. I can afford to spend it now.

    Would you sell your 6? Or keep it as a backup? Obviously you could sell the 6 to offset some of the cost of purchasing the 7. The good thing is that if you buy it off of your friend, you can still upgrade to the next generation iPhone come September since you won't be tied down by installment payments.

    You're right. He's offering me $400 and if I don't buy it the price goes up to 6.

    I'm not rich by any means. I just have some cash set aside for a rainy day.

    Really is a no brainer. Sell your 6 and buy the 7 from your friend. When the 8 comes out, you will have a phone with much better resale value in the 7. Sell the 7 and buy the 8.

    Get it done lol

    I think for that price point, It's worth it. And at least you have the satisfaction and securityof who you are purchasing it from.

    Looks like besnfrd is out 13 cents thus far. I concur. Buy the phone. Make that 14 cents. ;) I don't know about the others, but I accept PayPal. ;)

    If you trust him then definitely buy it. Just make sure it's not on some sort of finance plan.

    That's a good friend. Even buybackworld is paying close to $500 for a 128 gb 7 plus in excellent condition. Heck, if I were you, buy it from him, and turn around and sell it on swappa and make some money for nothing. You can make a quick $200.
