    I looked @ gazelle and they offered $380 for a sprint 64gig in mint condition....gotta be a sprint thing, but Verizon offer was $425
    anyway any recommendations? I paid cash and it has apple care (never used) that is transferable
    just looking to not get ripped off....thanks

    One month ago....Craigslist, 64 gb 6 Plus....$510. I've seen even better but very happy. If you can unlock it prior to selling, by all means do so. Meet at a service provider store from which the phone operate(d)...they are usually pretty accessible to help when it comes to answering questions from a buyer as to whether it is unlocked/authentic, etc.

    if you price it right and reasonably on craigslist people will bite. just prove legit documentation and pictures that its not icloud locked and good IMEI and you're good to go.

    Craigslist and 5 miles have been good to me.

    eBay will likely get the most views and bites, but you have to deal with scammers. Maybe try listing as local pickup only. I dunno why, but ebay still works the best in terms of advertising personal items for sale.

    Have done this three times now. If you have not used AppleCare+ then you can get prorated refund for months not used. Or transfer to buyer if they willing to pay. Most are not.

    Apple's iPhone recycling program at their stores. ALWAYS gave me the best price for old phones! Even beats Gazelle.

    The sold prices on Swappa are lower than what I got on Craigslist. Then there are the Paypal selling fees.

    On Swappa only the buyer pays $10 Paypal fee. Also I know many people that got robbed using craigslist.

    You got to be living in a ruff neighborhood.

    I quit using eBay and do Craig's List and have had great luck with them. You got to filter out the tire kickers but after a few emails back and forth I have always found good honest buyers who were just as interested in the deal going smooth as me.

    I sold mine at a T Mobile store. Unlikely to get robbed with a bunch of people around. You just need common sense.

    From a buyer's standpoint, I wouldn't bother buying from anywhere other than Swappa.

    Or you can get more for the phone if you leave applecare intact.

    Ever tried Apple? I think they buy back as well If Im not mistaken. No clue if they will be better then any other site you tried.
