Were you able to easily sell your 6/6+ when switching up to the other?

    Trying to offload my 6 (new in wrap genius bar replacement, other one had touch ID issues), and granted its only been one day, but I'd have thought it still would have sold by now locally.

    With what level of ease were you able to sell yours?

    I was able to sell my 6+ very easily however you will have a hard time selling a 6 due to it being relatively easy to find versus the Plus.

    Agreed. The 6 is easy to find. You're going to likely have to drop your asking price a good deal below MSRP to make it worth it for someone.

    You've priced it too high at $875 given its availability. Why should we pay $875 for a replacement iPhone 6 when we can pay $849 plus tax for a retail box unit, and get warranty coverage with Amex to boot and/or the ability to add AC+?

    This is true.

    What would be a reasonable price to put it at if selling locally?

    I would go 50 under msrp as long as the phone has no imperfections, which it shouldn't as the casing is new on Apple replacements. You will probably get offered around 100 off msrp by someone within a day and then you can meet in the middle at ~75 off msrp. That is the method I usually use and it moves pretty quickly. Another good thing about you meeting in the middle or selling below msrp in general is that you can set the meet spot as you are the one giving the deal.

    Excellent point.

    I think taking $800 or $775 (as a worst case scenario fire sale) would be nice.

    Aiming for $825 but whatever I just want it off my hands so I can fully enjoy 6+ without worrying about returning it.

    I can pay $100-125 out of pocket from 128 6 to 64 6+ and still feel happy and like I made out well.

    Especially with dat jailbreak

    I think for sure with all these shenanigans, I'll be holding onto my 6+ for 2 years like I did with my 5. Tried a 5s but was happy to give 5 a second year run especially for the cost out of pocket.

    Sold my 6 2 weeks ago. I find the best time to sell locally is prior to release-after release the market is flooded with them.
