****Just so everyone knows, I traded my nexus and got me a new iPhone 4s. It's good to be back!

Other then Craigslist or eBay. I’m looking for a place to trade my Verizon Galaxy Nexus for an iPhone 4s. I looked for a FS/Trade section on this forum but i can’t find anything. I searched so please don’t flame me. I’m just looking for a good site to trade my phone if it’s either on this website or some other. Thanks!

You're a newbie(as stated under your name). You have to post 500 posts before getting into the Marketplace section.

Is that a real answer? I know im a newbie here but just asking for some help. thats all
Sorry, its 250 posts not 500.

As stated under "I Can't Post" in the FAQ

http://guides.macrumors.com/Help:MacRumors_FAQ#I_can.27t_post

Only users with a history of 250 posts (user title 6502 or higher) and membership for at least 6 months can access the Marketplace forum. Only users with a history of 100 posts can post in the Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum. If you start a "for sale" thread or political thread in another forum to avoid this rule, your thread will be deleted. Once you reach 100 or 250 posts, you may not immediately be able to post in these forums. The privilege is added automatically when the forum system does routine processing, so check again in a few hours. The delay is normal, so please do not contact us to report it as a problem on the same day that you reach 100 or 250 posts. When you first gain access to the Marketplace forum, you will see it in the Community section of the forums.
You could be a random guy, wanting to sell cheap stuff or knock offs and if the forum opens the marketplace to any new comers, it will be full of spam.

No offence here though

No offence taken. I can see why they set the rules as they are. to protect their members from idiots. But again thanks for all the comments. I saw an LTE Galaxy Nexus sell for $538 on eBay (shocked) so it seems that may be my best choice for now. Thanks again.

I just sold my nexus on Craig's and I'm in the LA area. Went back to my 4s. Good luck selling it they're going for cheap. I lost money selling mine... I guess people are catching wind of all the problems the nexus is plagued with. Love ICS but hated the hardware it's tied too.

If you don't mind me asking. How much did you get for your nexus?

I had it listed for a week at 500 kept getting offers of 400. Finally I caved and sold it for 400. Careful with eBay you could lose your phone and your money. Too many scams... Have you tried Craig's? Give it a shot. How much are you trying to get for it? Also did you experience awful battery life? Or bogged down web browsing while on wifi??

I put up a trade add in craigslist. Asking for a straight trade. Im also in LA and had a few peeps get back to me but they all fell threw. Ill put up an asking price of $500 and see where it takes me... but i found nothing wrong with the nexus. I hear bad and good. Most of the bad being horrable signal issues. I need a 4s to work with my iPad 2 and there is No way in heck ill trade my iPad for an android tab.

I'm surprised no one else has noticed this but I was astonished to see that the name "Vanilla Ice" had not yet been taken yet before.
