    So I ordered my iphone 6, and I wound up doing the Iphone for Life plan (anyone who wants to talk me out of that, please make a case) so I didn't have to put any money down. So the question is, besides the obvious I can use my buyback money on my monthly bill, any reason I should sell my phone back or should I just hang on to it and use as an ipod or something?

    Any advise would be greatly appreciate, and thanks in advance!!

    Why not just get money for it? Money is better than no least that's what I was taught in Economics.

    Much depends on what you will get for your 5 and your financial situation. If you have reason to use it and can afford to keep it, do so.

    oh yes, money over no money is always better...just didn't know if their buyback price has plummeted over the last month. So if they were only giving back like $100 on say a 32gb then it maybe it would be more beneficial to keep it if I wasn't hurting for the money. obviously a lot of variables to take into account.

    On launch day, the tradein price for my 16GB IPhone5 was $205.

    I sold to a coworker for $250.
