    So as the title states I have a 16GB 4S that is worth $200 now with VZ Wireless trade-in. Do I trade-in now and save the $200 gift card for obvious use towards a iPhone 6? Or do i wait until new phone is announced with a risk that trade-in value will decline? I have an old Blackberry that I could use in the interim that can keep me texting and getting email for a few months. What do you think?

    Possibly get the money now, my 4s is worth £121 and I've checked back a few times and it keeps going down in value, though I don't have a phone that I can use as a backup, I'd say probably do it

    Yeah, get the money now. You may have an accident al drop with that 4S and it'll be worth a shiny penny.

    Don't trade it in. Sell it on eBay after you buy the 6.

    Assuming mid-Sep availability of the iPhone 6...that's 5 months of using an old Blackberry in an effort to save approximately $75 (assuming you'll be able to sell the iPhone 4s for about $125 in Sep).

    Your call...I know I would not do it.
