    Besides ebay, where can I sell two brand new 6S Plus phones on launch day (ATT locked)?

    What would get me the most money?

    Swappa? Gazelle? Who?

    ..................... I wish I had words for you. Actually I do, but they'd get me in trouble. So instead I took the time to calm down and use a bit more constructive approach.

    It's people like you who make it harder for people who will actually use their phones, to actually get their phones. SMDH.

    No offense but you're not going to get a lot of help here with a question like that.

    Oh, thought he was asking about selling an existing 6 Plus, not a 6S+.

    (Misread that, my bad)

    Amazon is offering $600 for my 6 plus128GB. Woah.

    I'll take that even if it's Amazon credit!

    Not Scalping.... just buying both on a new 2 year contract, then switching from ATT to Tmo (who will pay my ETFs), and buying phones from them. So the only person I'm screwing is ATT since they're giving me two $849 retail phones for a total of $598. If anything I am helping someone out because I'll be selling two 64gb att phones for UNDER full retail.

    Don't jump to conclusions.

    You said, "Swappa? Gazelle? Who?". Those are not places helping "someone" out.

    You're still purchasing phones with the intention of selling them for profit.... regardless of where you intend to purchase your second set for and for whatever reason you intend to use them for. Nice try to backtrack...

    Why not just switch to T-Mobile and not fool with getting new phones on AT&T? I don't believe your story because it makes no sense. You're scalping.

    If I am selling a NEW SEALED iPhone for $50-100 LESS than retail price then I am saving someone $50-100. Whether that's on Swappa, Craigslist, eBay, etc. I save someone money (~50-100 per phone x2), I make (sell 2x @750-800$ after buying at 299 ea)=about ~$900-1000 profit, and I screw over AT&T for ~$10-1100. Triple win!

    It is definitely "helping" someone out if they are planning to buy an att 64gb for 849 +tax and I sell to them for 750-800 no tax.

    Sorry, scammers aren't welcome here. And what you're doing is scamming and gaming the system.

    You can throw the numbers you are supposedly going to sell for them for all day, but I'm calling ******** on you.

    Because I have two upgrades available to use with ATT. No point in not using them when I plan to switch either way. Once I use them, ETF on each line will be $325 (TM pays up to 325 each line anyway, so no problem there). Then, I sell the two phones for ~1000-1100 profit total, sell the two current iphones I have as well, then buy two cheap $40 flip phones, associate them with my ATT acct. Trade them in to TM, purchase new phones at TM, and now I am on a better plan, with new phones, with extra profit.

    Local sale via Craigslist, or similar, would probably be best.

    Only person I am scamming is AT&T. Just practicing capitalism. I have been planning to switch anyway because I am tired of ATT throttling my UDP after 5GB each month, where TM doesn't throttle until 21GB on their UDP. That's only reason. Just figured might as well use my UGs with ATT first since if I don't that's just leaving money on the table.

    Dude, you aren't hurting AT&T... T-mobile is covering their expenses.. You are going to pay for those phones now, over at T-moble.

    Short sighted I see you are. No free ride you have.

    HOW am I talking adv of person I sell the phone to? If I were considering buying a new ATT 64GB space gray at full retail I would be HAPPY to pay 750-800 tax free vs 849 + tax. lmao... It's called a win-win. Not taking adv of tmobile because they're offering that deal very publicly (trade in a phone and buy a tm phone and they pay up to 350 etf/line). So again, yes I am screwing ATT but them throttling my UDP at 5gb every month screws with me, so think of it as a mini revenge. 1k isn't a drop in their bucket anyway.

    TM covers the ETF that I have to pay to ATT. TM does NOT cover the difference of 299 for subsidized 64gb 6s+ which would retail for 849. a difference of $550 x2 lines =1100-45ea for UG fee = ATT losing 1010$. I pay 345 each, total of $690, sell them for lets say 775 each (again, new unopened, tax free, retails of 849), so that is 1550$-690 cost =$860 profit.

    So I make $860. That basically covers one 64gb 6s+ from TMO, so now I just have to buy a second one with them, at full price, or I could choose JUMP, either way works.

    You are taking advantage of t-mo though. You're purposely signing into contracts at at&t, and essentially going to force T-mo to pay $650 to get your service, when you could switch WITHOUT signing contracts at at&t, and letting t-mo have your service without paying you for it. You're taking advantage of BOTH companies. Again... you are a scammer, and a gamer... and very frowned upon.
