What to do with an extra iPhone X?

I preordered 2 Verizon iPhone X 256 SG phones and both are set to be delivered this Friday. My wife has decided that she does not wish to upgrade from her 7 yet. She says that the 7 is already a bigger phone than she wants. She didn't realize that the 10 was a bigger than the 7 until I was showing her some videos of it recently.

Anyway, I was just going to cancel the order for one of the phones and call it a day. I've also thought about keeping it and selling it since I payed in full, but it's tied to the line of her account.

Does anyone have an opinion as to what I should do with the extra phone?

Sell it on craiglist or swappa if you want to make a profit. You could also sell it to a forum member who didn't get a launch day delivery using the marketplace section.

Keep it, have it delivered. Wait for your wife to see your phone to make sure she doesn't change her mind after hands on with yours.

If she changes her mind, she doesn't have to wait 6 weeks.

If she still doesn't want it, return hers unopened.

Well you might want to hang on to it until she sees yours and is 100% she doesn't like it. If you cancel and she likes yours, well... :D
