    Currently trying to judge how I'll sell my 4s to a person who's not too thrilled about the iPhone 5 and would rather have my mint 64gb iphone 4s.

    Currently selling my 64 gb iphone 4s for $600 along with 23 cases, 3 chargers, and a pair of headphones.

    The iphone 4s itsself is in mint condition. Purchased October 11 and been in a case ever since. Currently (6+) months in a Black Lifeproof.

    Some of the cases:

    -Lifeproof [Black]
    - Vapor Pro
    - Vapor Comp
    - Belkin 050
    - Speck Candyshell Black
    - Speck Candyshell GRIP [Black]
    - Speck Candyshell Teal/Black
    - Otterbox Defender
    - Otterbox Commuter
    - Otterbox "LIVESTRONG" commuter
    - Incipio NGP
    - SGP Valentinus Wallet Case
    - SGP Modello
    - Casette Tape case
    - Luminosity Case [looks like the back of iphone 4s] in Blue
    - Griffin Protector

    There are more, just ask. I took the protection of this phone SERIOUS.


    Comes with the stock iphone charger & cord, a dual iphone/ipad splitter cable [It'll charge your ipad and iphone], a Powergen Dual USB car charger as well.

    I'm thinking $600 is a good bargain for that deal.. What do you think?

    There's such thing as serious and then there's ridiculous.

    Explain how that's redic..

    a 16gb can go easily for $450 online... My 64gb with 23 cases and three charges can't go for the 6 ball?

    Lettuce...

    Perhaps assigning value to (or even just owning) 23 cases is "ridiculous." I know I think it is.:rolleyes:

    Agreed. I figured my 64gb would go on average 500-550, why not include all the cases I can't use with the 5 for an extra $50. If not, I'm negotiable

    People are not interested in buying an iphone with 23 cases genius. They just want the phone and basic accessories like usb cord, headphones and a plug. Original box would be nice too.
    All the rest are extras that people wont consider paying for.

    All of the stuff you mentioned are included [plus the cases]. It's just an added incentive.

    I rather stand out on ebay, etc then "Hey.. got an iphone for sell.. wanna buy!?"

    Without the cases, $550
    With the cases $600

    ISound better?

    My 64GB Black 4S just sold for $480.00

    A little disappointed because I had to relist it; it originally sold for $540.00, but the buyer wanted me to ship it to a non PayPal address, which I can't do to be protected by eBay.

    So basically I lost $60 due to a stupid buyer. :mad:

    You can try.
    I usually put it as auction starting at 99 cents and let it bring whatever it brings.
    You can put it at $600 or best offer and if noone purchases it buy it now at the amount you wanted consider other offers below that.

    Just sold my near mint 4s 64 GB AT&T for $500 locally, might've been able to get a bit more if I waited but happy to complete sale before the announcement and no eBay/PayPal fees or shipping to deal with so I'm glad it's done.

    Now I just have to live with a Galaxy Nexus for a few more weeks.

    I sold my 64 gig white for $450 locally over 2 weeks. The deal is I was willing to drop the price $50 so that I can hold on to it until I get the 5. The buyer is willing to wait a month for a discounted price and I got peace of mind of having it sold off.

    Better than losing a phone entirely to a scammer!

    I just listed my iPhone hoping to get $380 for it. It's a 16GB. To tell you the truth, I don't want to be without the phone for a couple of weeks so I might just lock $260 in with Gazelle since it has a 30 day guarantee.

    Nobody's going to want 23 cases. You might be better off just selling them separately.

    Did he give you the $450 already?

    True, I just wish eBay didn't have so many buyers that are stupid and don't bother to read the item's description and eBay's rules.

    You never know, he might change his mind about the new one coming out. I'd say sell it now.

    Let's just say you paid $20 per case. That's $460. For that amount of money, you could afford to go "naked" with your phone and when it breaks just pay Apple $200 for a replacement.

    How is there any value in 23 cases? Who would want to even deal with that rediculous # of them? Wow!

    FAIL!

    The buyer just contacted me and said: "Sorry, error bid" :rolleyes:

    Looks like I'm not selling my 4S after all! I'm sick of these eBay buyers who do this! :(

    That's what I'm thinking.. Trying to get it OUT of my hands by September 11th before the media & newspaper start publishing about it. Better to do it before it's OFFICIALLY announced because once the buzz and release date of the 5 comes out... chances are 50/50

    ----------

    Some people like the idea of being able to pick a case with the phone I guess.

    Say if I give them one case of their choice with the iphone at $550

    Oh its a Verizon 4S?
    Dont expect to get as much for it as GSM 4S models get or GSM unlocked 4S.

    You should buy another 7 cases.
    This way you can have a different one for each day of the month:D
