    Can someone ballpark how much I should sell my current iPhone 5 with original cables but no box (want to keep it ^_^) 32 gig white for Verizon (unlocked).

    Mint condition.
    No Craigslist experience.

    For your reference, I sold mine with same config but ATT with box and brand new accessories (no power cable) on CL for $450.

    Ah very smart. Thanks.
    BTW, is it easy to sell on craigslist? Like are there people that try to haggle with you non stop, not taking no for an answer?


    Was it nice and smooth?


    Nice! Seems like you'll be getting more than me!:D

    around 480-500$ in mint condition.

    I don't think you will get more than that.

    Make sure you say in posting price is firm... so no lowballers.

    TBH; IF you don't want to deal with clowns, low ballers, or scammers on CL I recommend just selling it at GameStop, I know they wont give you full value what it's worth. But it saves dealing with all those people all together.

    And OMG don't even get me started with those Nigerian scammers LMAO.
    Please OP if you sell it on CL don't full for that scam.:eek:

    Just sold my AT&T white for $400 (I advertised for $420). Do not settle for less than $400. You'll have to be patient - it may take 2 days for you to find the right buyer from all the low ballers.

    Other tips:
    1) Set up a Google voice number (so your number isn't exposed)
    2) Buy a counterfeit money detector pen ($5 from Staples) OR meet the buyer at the bank

    I sold my black 5 32gb unlocked (originally an AT&T phone) for $550. It was in perfect condition with box and all accessories minus headphones. Also had AppleCare. You should be able to get 450 for yours.

    Just be patient. There's a ton of iPhone 5's out there on craigslist right now, but there's also some pretty high demand for them. It will probably take you up to a week to sell it.

    Shouldn't be a problem waiting to be honest. As long as I get at least $400 to fund my new iPhone 5s I'll be happy #


    I forgot about the prospect of fake cash... Great tips!


    If I get tired of the cheap people I'll probably settle with trade In offers. Thanks.
