  • Apple Drops Value of iPhone Trade-ins


    Without much fuss or fanfare, Apple has made a few subtle but still detectible changes to its "Reuse and Recycle" program.

    Applicable to customers in both the United States and Canada, Apple has reduced the value of iPhone trade-ins.

    A Canadian online news outlet was first to discover and report that Apple has sliced off $45 from the iPhone 'Reuse and Recycling' trade-in value. Consequently, the new maximum value is fixed at $225, down from a previous $270.

    We're told the change commenced yesterday at Apple stores in both nations.

    "In March," says Sam Lehman of Headlines & Global News, "the Cupertino tech giant offered as much as $275 for an iPhone trade-in, this was for a high-end model in pristine condition. In August 2012, the company offered up to $345 for iPhone 4S, which was then the latest smartphone. But the new price change is the lowest the company has ever offered since the program's launch."

      mhm and if it's on a firmware that's jailbreak-able at a time when new phones can't be exploited you can push that price even higher. I always buy unlocked phones so resale value is there.

      If you trade in your iPhone to Apple you deserve to be kicked in the face very strong for being so dumb, and I'm vehemently against violence!! FFS use eBay!!! Easily sell it for 300 to 400!!

      I found someone selling a brand new iPhone 4s just a month or two after the 5 came out on Craigslist for $150. I didn't need one, but I bought it and sold it on eBay for over $325 lol.

      About $50 probably. You can get almost $200 on eBay.

      iPhone 4 is no where near worth 200 on eBay
      Please check eBay on completed listings to see what it's worth !!
