    has anyone ever heard of this site where they buy your iPhone and pay you to recycle it? can anyone testify to this site working or is it just a scam

    Certainly looks like a good site...i'm looking up some reviews for it now but i can't really find anything solid for or against it >.<

    Personally, to be safe, I would go to

    They have basically the same prices, but I can guarantee you 100% that they are legit as I have used them before and there are tons of good reviews for them.

    We're Good! : D

    This is Alysa, the Director of Marketing and PR at, I can tell you with certainty that we are not a scam.

    Everything on our Web site is truthful and we really will pay you for your old iPhone. We can also send you a box if you need one.

    If you would like more verification, we were recently seen on Fox news and mentioned in CNET's and NYTimes's blogs.

    You can find an article here from NBC 30:

    And here from theDailyGreen:

    Feel free to email me if you have any more questions!

    As I said in another thread, be careful with these sites

    People I know that have done this type of thing have been ripped of 3 of 4 times, me included

    I think it's a scam

    I will never use again nor will I recommend. I sent in a very gently used iPhone about 3 weeks ago. It was in the original packaging with chargers, etc. I received an email 2 weeks ago confirming receipt of my package and that "in a couple of days" I would receive another email after my electronics had been "reviewed." I have not heard anything since despite a 2 emails asking for an update and a posting on the Facebook page. I have no hope of ever seeing my iPhone or my money.

    Funny. I priced a 32GB 3GS in perfect condition and they came back with 135.00. What an unbelievable ripoff! I can't believe anyone would fall for a site like that. STAY AWAY!!!

    When I read the link I thought it said "you're new dot com"... Which would be comparable to getting a tattoo that says "dont" without the apostrophe. Now I see that it is "you renew dot com" - carry on. :D

    Any time the Director of Marketing and Renewal comes and gives a testimonial, it must be legit.
