    I want to upgrade to the 6 Plus but I figured I'd wait for the 6S Plus this Fall. I'll probably sell my iPhone 6 in a month or so, but I want to buy a cheap phone to use as a spare until I get my 6S Plus, assuming it comes out in September.

    Any recommendations for a decent phone I can find used or something for under $100? As long as it's easy to type/text on I don't care.

    I have never understood this type of thinking. Unless you already have a spare phone around to use.

    Why spend say another $100 to buy a phone to use for the next 6-7 week until iPhone 6S/iPhone 6S plus is released?

    Say the going price for a 64gb iPhone 6 plus is around $550-600 on various websites right now.

    Come September the re sell price becomes $450-500.

    What exactly have you accomplished trying to sell ur current iPhone 6/6 plus right now. You'd basicAlly spend $100 or so more for a phone you likely won't really like and likely 2 plus year old.

    You may suffer for 6-7 weeks.

    And end up no better than you would have been just keeping the phone and reselling for less.

    Your net cost basis would be the same selling now (plus paying $100 for cheap used phone/lack of features compared to ur current iPhone 6 plus).
