ecoATM kiosk could be more appealing to those a painless trade-in/trade-up without the hassle of having to mail out the device. Electronic devices, once approved after a 3-step inspection process, can be then converted into a trade-up coupon, gift card, cash, or if you're feeling charitable, into a contribution of your choice.
As an example, a working Verizon iPhone 4 was deemed worth $221, but value will be dependent upon the condition and model of device scanned. ecoATM locations currently skew heavily westward nationally, mostly in Southern California: San Diego (their homebase), San Francisco, but also up in Seattle, alongside Omaha and Kansas City. Company founder Bill Bowles expects to expand out to 500 EcoATM machines by the end of 2012, so you might be seeing one of these kiosks at a mall near you.
