    Seems a lot of places are lowering their resale value. Amazon has lowered theirs and AT&T is also now only offering $150 for an iPhone 5 32GB.

    For those of you selling off your old iPhone, where are you selling it at?

    The top 3 options are usually:
    1) Craigslist
    2) Swappa
    3) eBay

    Craigslist. Instant cash, in person. Never had a bad experience but I use common sense and am not paranoid. Meet in the middle of the mall or something you'll be fine. Usually get the best price this way and don't have to wait.

    Never heard of Swappa, Will have to check it out when I sell mine. I usually sell it on eBay for a good amount to people overseas.

    From Swappa website...

    "It's free to list and free to sell. Swappa does not charge seller fees."

    So how do they make money? lol

    I'm happy that they use Paypal though.

    I was going to go with iCracked or Amazon, but now am looking into Swappa after this thread. What's the going rate on there for a 5S 32GB? I'd rather not create an account just to find that out.

    The buyer pays a fee to purchase.

    iCracked. They quoted me $195 for my 5S. Also if you use code 9TO5MAC, you get an additional $20. So I'm getting $215 for my phone.

    Edit: Corrected
    Search on the first page and find your phone.

    There should be a Recently Sold section at the bottom giving you an idea. Remember, Swappa will not accept phones with cracked screens.

    Oh okay. I might actually give this a try then. eBay screws you on fee's.

    Paypal DOES take a fee though, from what I understand.

    Very true. Over 10% these days... but still better than all the time-wasters on craigslist or taking a lowball deal from a reseller.

    I'm more concerned with the scams than fees on ebay...
