Ready to upgrade to the iPhone 4S? You can take a little edge off the steep prices ($399? With a new contract?!) by trading in your old iPhone for cash. There are a bevy of online sites that'll take older iPhones off your hands—each offering very different prices for Apple's different iPhone models. Luckily, we've done all the price-comparison legwork for you. We valued several old iPhone models—every phone from the original 4GB iPhone to the white 32GB Verizon iPhone 4—through each of the 5 biggest trade-in dealers: eBay Instant Sale, Best Buy Trade-In, BuyMyTronics.com, Gazelle.com and NextWorth.com. In each case, we asked the site to estimate the trade-in value for a phone in "excellent" or "like new" condition, with all of the original cords and packaging included. Your mileage may vary, of course. Expect to earn a little less if your phone is in poor shape or missing any accessories. Also, these trade-in prices are likely to change day-to-day and even hour-to-hour. As demand goes down or supply goes up (like after the iPhone 4S gets into consumers hands), these trade-in values will probably drop. The best time to sell off your old iPhone is right now.
