    Since the new one is coming and most people got the iphone5 and a lot more are getting them, what are guys going to do with your old iPhones?

    Keep it?

    Gift it?

    Put it in the drawer?

    Sell it?

    I'm passing mine down to my little sister, who has an old iPhone 4, but it's only 16 GB. She is then selling her 16 GB one, and the two of us are splitting the proceeds. I figure I'll see about 50 bucks. Or a case of beer.

    I was also thinking about selling my 4 but they aren't going for that much right now. People are selling unlocked 32gb for $250 obo. I paid way more than that! So I might just gift it to my brother.

    I'm selling my 32GB iPhone 4S to offset the $250 early upgrade fee and recover some of the $299 I just spent on the iPhone 5.

    I'm going to gift it to my mom, I suppose. She's tired of waiting for her Ice Cream Sandwich update that keeps being pushed back every month for reasons I have yet to fathom.

    ebay instant sale offered me $200 for my launch day 16gb ATT iPhone 4. No fuss, no muss, and offsets the price of my 5.

    Easy, Peazy, free iPhone 5 Pleazy

    1) Go to Costco, but a Ninja Blender.

    2) Go to B of A ATM and withdraw $400.

    3) Put iPhone and $400 into the blender.

    4) Turn dial to "DEMOLISH"

    5) Shout "YES, it WILL blend!" as I host my own home version of "Will it blend, with a twist" ...

    Video to come shortly (I wouldn't stay up waiting for it) hehe

    It was an iPod Touch for a long time but I finally sold it on Craigslist to offset the cost of jumping to the 5.
