Not quite an answer to your question, but from past experience I highly recommend BuyBackWorld: http://www.buybackworld.com

Last year I "traded in" a couple of iPhone 4s through them. Unlike my previous experience with their competitors, their service was terrific and they played no tricks on me with valuation once they received our devices. Watch out for that-- you might be quoted an impressive $XXX for a device from some less scrupulous company but end up getting significantly less.

BuyBackWorld's payment was fast too. Recommended.

Probably selling mine on Craigslist, eBay, or Swappa a month or so after I get the 6.

Craigslist, I'll be listing mine 1 week before launch because I do not have a spare phone to use in the mean time so will need to use this one and then toughen it out until the 6 is launched.

I'm planning to sell my 5S on eBay. I'll list it a few days before release since I don't have a spare. And if it doesn't sell on eBay then I'll just use Gazelle.

I'll probably sell mine to one of my adult kids or teens. If DH gets a new one, I suspect he will do the same.

I sold my last iPhone to Amazon, I think.

Wow. It seems I got the most for my iPhone. I sold my 16GB iPhone 5S (gold) for $520 after being talked down from $530 for cosmetic damage my buyer didn't see in the 16MP images I posted. If you ever think you'll sell your iPhone, keep the box and as much in it as you can.

Probably Craigslist. Not interested in possibly being scammed on eBay.

Craigslist has a higher probability of being scammed than ebay for items a few hundred dollars or more..

Lot of built in protection with ebay, much more than Craigslist which doesn't have any does it?
