    I have every intention of keeping my iPhone 6 Plus, but if people start getting crazy and offering tons of money on Craigslist/Ebay/etc., I might be tempted to sell and just wait for a month or two.

    The phone is already pre-programmed with my number, right? So what would I need to do to sell it cleanly, if I so chose?

    Pull out and keep your sim card (sim card is your phone number), and go into settings and erase all.

    Ah, I should have specified - I have Verizon, so no sim.

    Hmm not sure about Verizon. They may be different.

    Just reset all contents and settings and take your SIM card out (yes, the Verizon model uses a SIM card for LTE).

    That's pretty much it.

    I'd only sell mine for offers north of $1,950. Other then that, never. For $2k+ you can buy a new phone and save or splurge the rest.......

    I may sound like a dingus but I'm an Apple loyalist so my 6+ will be priceless to me.

    It's because SIM cards are required for LTE.

    Well if you don't have one coming, the OP would be more than happy to sell one to you!

    If someone offered me nearly $2,000 for my 64gb 6+ I'd definitely do it.

    How would you go about doing this, though? I did my 6+ with AT&T next. Would you just pay off the next entirely then go back to your old phone? Is there no requirement once you pay off the next "loan?"

    I know that. It was said that they do not, and that is not true.

    "Sir I will offer you 50 million dollars"

    "did you not hear me??? PRICELESS"

    "100 million!"

    "PRICELESS"

    I have two coming. One pre-ordered and one for pick-up at the store when I became paranoid about delivery. I was just going to not pick up the one at the store, then I saw some of the prices on eBay.
