    AT most they will give you a gift card but with a broken screen it will not be much.

    Take it to a repair shop and see what they will give you for it.

    Post it on Craigslist or Facebook and sell it.

    Agreed. Even On ebay, broken iPhones sell quickly for parts and you would be surprised what buyers will pay.

    i don't think Apple will accept a broken phone. Best bet is to sell it on Kijiji or eBay, or craigs list if that the popular local ad

    If you want most fair value, eBay is the way to go....people will bid on it and determine fair price

    if you want to sell it ASAP then do the locals

    If you take it to Apple, they might just recycle it for free. I remember back in the day I had a 5 with a small crack on the display as they didn't accept it as a trade in towards a 5s. So I sold it privately on kijiji and it worked out as I got more than their trade in value for a non-cracked 5 any way.

    If you want most bang for your buck, trading a phone in is seldom the most bang for your buck whether it is broken or not.

    Okay guys thanks for the advice I will put it on EBay. What do you think would be a good starting price? It's 64GB.

    You're not the first man known to Earth to sell a defective phone. How about doing some research? On Ebay?

    I would imagine Apple prefers to to give credit for devices with broken screens. Phone will go through the same refurbish process and Apple gets to pay you less for it.

    Someone will definitely buy it on Facebook. Cracked or not.

    Yes, but for next to nothing. If you ask the Apple Store for a repair then trade it in, you usually get your money's worth.

    Gazelle will buy broken phones I looked up a quote for a broken 64 GB 6s that powers on and they offered 85 dollars vs 220 for one in good condition

    I just sent in a 6 Plus that I broke the screen on and the Touch ID button when trying to fix it instead of waiting for eye surgery and trying to fix it after. They offered 60 but ended up paying 65 bucks.

    Yep brain tumor pushed eye out of position when they cut it out :( But it's fixable

    But my old phone was more fixable before I tried to fix it :)

    Just get the screen fixed and then sell it. You'll still make money in the end.
