    Hey guys,

    Like many, I cannot wait until the iphone 5 drops. I am still under contract for quite a while with my current iPhone 4.

    When do you think would be the best time to sell it on ebay in order to fetch the best price?? Now while Iphone 5 news is under wraps or closer to the launch date? I plan to buy the iPhone 5 outright


    :D:D:D

    I haven't sold mine yet either. It's going on ebay once I hear rumors of Apple planning to announce an event. I have an upgrade though.

    Why sell it? To get a dual-core processor in the iP5? I don't trade phones off that way. The A4 is plenty fast for phone calls, texts, picture/moving taking and web browsing + applications. Once the iP5 is announced I will throw in the towel and quit showing my phone off and place it in an Otterbox Defender for the rest of its service time. I plan on getting at least another two years of good use out of this expensive gadget. That should give AT&T LTE plenty of time to roll out and reach my area.

    I need to sell my iPhone as well...but I don't know what to do in the interim. I have Verizon and don't have a spare Verizon phone...

    You can sell the phones for quite a bit of money. I actually normally make a profit each upgrade cycle.

    Well I'm personally waiting to see what the iPhone 5 is going to be before making this decision.

    You might get a better price now vs. post iPhone 5 unveiling however keep in mind that if you iPhone 4 is in good physical condition there will be a very strong market for it.

    My suggestion: Sell you iPhone 4 on Craigslist (if you live in the States) once you know you will upgrade. Otherwise what are you going to use for a phone as you wait for iPhone 5?

    Also from personally experience you can get good money if you sell on Craigslist. I went this route when I sold my iPhone 3G and I'll do it again for my iPhone 4 if I elect to upgrade.

    (And if you still plan on using Ebay, I still say wait until iPhone 5 is available.)
