Apple to Start iPhone Trade-In Program in Retail Stores
According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple will begin accepting trade-ins on iPhones for the first time in its retail stores. Encouraging users to upgrade to the latest models and seeking to boost sales. Apple will be partnering with recycling firm Brightstar to offer the program. According to the report:
Used iPhones collected in the U.S. will only be resold in emerging markets, where Apple’s share is lower and demand for cheap devices is greater, said one of the people. That way, the resale of Apple’s older models won’t cannibalize iPhone 5 sales in the U.S., the person said.
The new trade-in program with BrightStar will only be available at Apple’s retail outlets, letting consumers receive payments instantly and avoiding the hassle of shipping their older gadgets, the people said.
Does a trade-in program offered by Apple sound like something you’d possibly consider taking advantage of?

Depending on the amount that they offer.
When a new model comes out, I normally try to sell my old model and put the money towards the newest one (given that it's worth it to upgrade, necessary additions, sans jailbreak, etc). I figure Apple won't give you too much for your old model, just like Gazelle doesn't have the greatest offers either.

Nice touch, but this won't be worth it to me. I always get TOP DOLLAR selling on either craigslist or to a certain someone who knows me through my site. I'm not trading in last year's model for a lousy $50 - $100 off when I can get 400+ for my factory unlocks.

Seeing how its Apple plan to make obsolete their products after a few years, I'd think it should be widely suggested to make use of old outdated products for those who may want to keep up with Technology and those who like to antiquate their household to be able to benefit as well...
But if you sell on USELL you don't need to worry of have someone rip you off at home...
