    Reasonable cost for a used iphone 4?

    Friend is selling her 4 once she receives the pre-ordered 5.
    This is a 4, not a 4s.

    Phone is in great condition and has been kept in a protective case.

    I would like to get the 4 for my son (who currently has a 3g). This will be a major upgrade for him.

    What do you think would be a reasonable price?

    I am thinking that after the 5 is officially released, the cost of a 4 will go down a bit.

    Would anything under $200 be reasonable?

    (forgive me if this is a duplicate post. I didn't see that my previous post actually went through.)

    Which carrier is the iPhone 4 from ?? Your friend would get a better price if it is unlocked for international roaming (even if it is a Verizon-branded phone). Have you checked e-bay for iPhone 4 pricing (used, not new) ?
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    This is an ATT phone. It is not unlocked for any kind of international use.

    Right now they are going for $230-$250 on ebay, but the 5 isn't out yet either. I think people there will be a glut on the market in a few weeks.

    Game Stop has a buy back for $169 for a mint condition if you want GS store credit, and $143 in cash back.

    I realize GS does not give you the best deal, but I also know that between ebay fees and shipping, you could be out about $25-$30 on your sale.

    Gazelle.com will give you $180 for a 16GB iPhone 4 in like-new condition. The 8GB version in the same condition gets you $125.

    Thank you. I think $180 or so is a very reasonable price.

    I will keep my eye on that site once the 5 actually comes out.

    Thanks.

    I would say less than USD 200 definately for the 16 GB! I guess it might go down to USD 150 after the release date of the iPhone 5.

    You are absolutely right because according to this latest price survey movaluate.com/apple/iphone-4-16gb-verizon-white you can expect to buy this device in Good condition for $200.00. Depending on the exact condition the price may vary from $187.50 to $212.50.
