    How about sell the 4S for $200. and buy the RadioShack 5S for $100. with $100. left over profit?


    Win?

    The only thing I see going for $200+ on ebay for 4s's are unlocked 4s's.. and most of them don't even have bids on them.

    I was scared you might be right as it's been a few days since I checked, but no- they still garner a decent price.
    In fact, the very last AT&T iPhone 4S to sell on eBay is this one:
    (16GB, black)

    I know a dude who bought a 4S for $200 a couple of days ago so yeah, you can sell a 4S for 200 bucks

    You link you posted says the listing has ended.. I can't see anything lol.. what do you mean "very last AT&T iPhone 4s"?.. like last one in production for at&t or something?

    ----------

    I'm a little lazy with eBay and didn't want to pay eBay fees and stuff lol so when I sold my 4s 6 - 12 months ago (forgot how long ago) Gazelle gave me $160.. was good enough for me at the time.

    Check the link again.
    In fact, the seller had two at that price and BOTH sold for his asking price of $279. plus $10. postage.

    (Don't be deceived by all the faulty and/or Sprint 4S's listed on eBay. They're not as desirable.)

    Still says listing has ended.. below though it shows what else the seller has and this is one of them: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-iPhon...d=100011&prg=9407&rk=1&rkt=10&sd=121160587938

    However I think it's ONLY a "buy it now" thing and not a bid.. and clearly nobody has bought it yet so who knows what these things sell for.. maybe your ones and two's will buy this for $200+ but I think that's too much for them to be selling at personally

    no one bought that because it's such a terribly listed item.

    - no pics of actual device
    - way too much nonsense in the description

    i personally stay away from auctions like this because it's just copy/paste and the seller probably doesn't even know what the hell he's selling.

    In the eBay ENDED link I provide above if you'll check you will see under quantity available, 0 and next to it quantity sold, 2.

    I can't assist you in navigating eBay any better than this.

    I'm re-upping with Verizon in early May and upgrading from a 4S to a 5s so I popped in to the local Radio Shack to ask about the $100-off promotion. They were unsure as to how long the promotion will last and the availability of the model I wanted (space gray 32GB), but I gave them my "junk" Gmail for their email program with the promise of "coupons".

    I'm not trading in my trusty 4S...I always keep my last phone as a backup...so I didn't inquire about the specifics of that.

    Nothing is ever free. 2 Years is a long time, with the 6 expected soon. Think smart.
