    Hi folks.
    So, like many of you I decided to sell my phone to eBay instant sale. By description phone is in good condition with regular wear. Occasionally I would have problems with home button being unresponsive.

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1348926581.622182.jpg And this is the main reason why eBay offer went from $200 to $105. Totally understand. But would u take that offer or is it to low?

    I just need to hear what are your thoughts?

    Thank you

    I'd rather keep the phone even if it was only going to collect dust.

    GameStop gives the highest outright cash offer for the iPhones, without the trouble of auctioning or creepy Craigslist parking lot meetups. They don't even require any of the accessories.

    Way to low!! Th 4S goes for 400-500$ on eBay. You should be getting 200-230$.

    Too low, you should at least be able to get 160-180.

    But timing is everything, I sold my two year old black Verizon iPhone 4 16g on ebay for $260.00

    It was a week before the 5 was officially announced.

    Just sold a 32 4 on CL for 225. I think I could have gotten 250 with more patience. I'd think you could get at least 150-175.

    I just sold my white 16gb iPhone 4 for $250. My friend sold his for $230. You should easily be getting mid 200s.

    I feel like I got ripped off for selling my iPhone 4S for 282 by reading this thread. :(

    I've been looking at ads for a week before iphone 5 launch day. I'm still looking at ads after having bought a mint used 4S on 5 launch day, just to see where prices are headed.

    *Legitimate* 4S in good condition is staying in the mid-300's, by legitimate I mean ones that include matching original box and sales receipt, like the one I bought. I tried to look for ones at $300 or below, but most are questionable. A few ads I emailed on, the sellers got very defensive when I asked for sales receipt. Honest sellers should have no problem supplying the original sales receipt and deserve to get more.

    Keep your box and sales receipt if you want maximum resale value. I sold my unlocked 4S for $650 about two months before iPhone 5 announcement with box and receipt :D

    That's a horrible offer. You should be able to quickly and easily get $180-200 on Craigslist

    I received $190 for my verizon Iphone 4 16gb. If you were to use ebay instant sale BEFORE the sale of the new iphone, it would have been overall higher prices. Specifically when trading in any smartphones, they extented the ship deadline to October 1st until I had my new phone so I didnt remain phoneless. This went for everyone not just me. Its quite ironic how I saw this thread, received $190, and shipped my phone out yesterday.

    The reason u got so much is because u sold your 2 months before iPhone 5 announcement. The 4s are not going for that much now most on eBay are selling between 280-350 very few I see sold above 400 and those are usually unlocked with mint condition. Mine was not in mint condition but front n back glass was intact n I got 350 for it. People have to realize there is thousands of phones on sale I see a lot of people iPhones 4s not selling cause their asking for to much money!

    I just sent mine off to instant-sale a few days ago. I worried they are going to try to screw me down in price.

    Too low, but timing is everything. I had an eBay instant sale offer of 235 for. 32gb iPhone 4....just have to ship by October 1st (which I did today). So glad I locked in my offer a few weeks ago.
