Now that the iPhone 4S has been out for nearly a week, perhaps your iPhone 4 is starting to feel dated sans Siri, a faster processor and an 8-megapixel camera.
With resale value of the iPhone 4 on the decline due to the number of iPhone 4s flooding the market, you need to act fast if you're serious about trading in your used phone for cash after all.
Gazelle, for example, was offering up to $250 for a used 32 GB iPhone 4 back on October 4, but has dropped to $212 (if in like-new condition) or just $162 (good condition) today.
Luckily for you, NextWorth is guaranteeing $200 for either the 16 or 32 GB iPhone 4 from AT&T in gently used condition, but this offer won't last beyond October 24.
The locked-in quote for your iPhone 4 will be valid for 21 days, which means you will be able to receive your new iPhone 4S (assuming you order it this week) before you have to send your iPhone 4 to NextWorth for good. Of course, the exact value of your used iPhone is determined by its condition, and this rate is only true for iPhone 4s in "in good working condition with no heavy scratches or cracks," according to its press release.
To get started, simply visit NextWorth.com, answer a few questions about the condition of your iPhone 4 (as well as other used gear you want to get rid of), mail your item(s) to NextWorth for testing and payment. Shipping your iPhone 4 to NextWorth is free, and you will get to choose between receiving cash or a pre-loaded gift card.
Still wary of sending your used gadgets to a faraway website? NextWorth is partnered with over 1,490 Target locations across the country (and the J & R by City Hall in New York City), so you can get your iPhone 4 assessed in-person and potentially walk out with a Target-branded electronics trade-in card in your pocket. If you miss this brief window to trade up your iPhone 4 to the 4S, you might as well wait till the iPhone 5 is released before cashing in on your iPhone 4.
