With the iPhone 5 announcement not even 24 hours behind us, all the buzz and excitement is shifting off of the previous iPhone models.
We saw this trend starting around 6 months ago when iPhone sales started to slip. And the theory was that everyone was holding off on buying the 4s in exchange for waiting for the iPhone 5.
But now that the iPhone 5 is here, people are looking for ways to sell their iPhone 4s for the most cash in order to free up the money to invest into the new iPhone 5.
With the iPhone 4s buy back programs just starting to ramp up since the announcement yesterday, I would say that right now is the best time for you to grab the most cash for your iPhone 4s.
The highest buy back price I’ve see so far is from Ebay who’s willing to pay $400 for your iPhone 4s. Of course, it has to be working, no cracks, and have the charger.
The 4s model is still currently the newest model available, but that’s all about to change when you pre-sales for the iPhone 5 open tomorrow worldwide. According to Mashable, top iPhone buy back programs are offering upwards of $400 to buy your iPhone 4s.
From Mashable: The best offer we saw for the 64GB iPhone 4S is courtesy of eBay’s Instant Sale. Instant Sale will pay $400 for a working, fully functional 64GB iPhone 4S. The device needs to be fully functional, have no physical damage and include the charger.
The popular trade-in service Gazelle will pay $350 for a 64GB iPhone 4S on AT&T (actually has dropped to $326 at the time of this writing).
Earlier today, Gazelle was offering $400 for the same unit, which means that trade-in volume is already impacting buyback offers.
Like Gazelle, NextWorth is offering $350 for a 64GB iPhone 4S-at&t/). The device needs to be working and cannot have a cracked display. Amazon’s Trade-In program will pay up to $391 on an Amazon gift card for a 64GB iPhone 4S.
Amazon will actually pay $460 on a gift card for a “like new” iPhone 4S, but Amazon’s requirements for what constitutes “like new” is stricter than most other companies. It needs the original packaging and should be presentable as a gift.
At Apple’s Reuse and Recycle website, powered by PowerON, the company will offer a $345 gift card for a 64GB iPhone 4S.
