What's your old iPhone worth?

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

If you're looking to dump your current iPhone in favor of a newer model, you have several options.

The value of your used iPhone depends a lot on what kind of condition it's in.

The docs at the iHospital know what passes for good condition. As long as the screen is free of scratches, the back can have a few, but must not have any water damage.

Same Schlam of iHospital said it's safe to sell your phone, but recommended that you take your SIM card out. Verizon and Sprint customers would have to take their iPhone into a store and have them deactivate the SIM card.

There are a number of websites that you can use to sell your used iPhone. Gazelle.Com is one recommended by iHospital workers.  But if you go for a quick sale on the internet, you're not going to get full value.

If you sell it yourself, you are more likely to get the top end of your phone's value. It requires a lot more work from you.
