Were you glued to your laptop last week? I was. I wanted to rejoice with the rest of the world the birth of the brand new iPhone 5. Are you going to get it? Did you pre-order?
Either way, the question always comes up of “What do I do with my old iPhone?”
Here in my home, we are iPhone addicts. I became part of the happy club back in 2009. My son and husband, in 2010. I have the 4s and my husband and son have the iPhone 4. What we do in our family is rotate the phones. I am the one who gets the new one (yes, I am spoiled by my husband) and then I pass down my phone. We did that with the iPhone 3 Gs and so on.
We will do the same this time. Once I get the iPhone 5, I will pass my 4s to my husband or son and then their phone will get the phone service shut down and will act as a iPod Touch. This will be passed down to my 7 year old.
See, this system works for us. I expect it to work for a while at least. But if you are looking to get rid of your iPhone but don’t know if you are going to sell it, RadioShack has a great program that will help you, not only get rid of your iPhone without any hassle, but it will also help you towards the cost of the new iPhone 5 that you are going to purchase!
By using RadioShack’s “Trade and Save” program your phone can qualify for the following trade-in values:
$115 value applies to trade-in of iPhone 4 8GB;
$350 value applies to trade-in of iPhone 4S 64GB AT&T only
Value for other models will vary. Appraised value will be given as a store credit, which may be applied instantly to your purchase. Product must power on and be in fully functional, working condition without any broken/missing components, including, but not limited to, cracked display or housing. Product cannot be PIN locked or exhibit any signs of liquid damage. Appraised value shown is after applicable processing fees and with trade-in of any included chargers, cables or other accessories. Sample appraisal amount good through 9/29/12; value may vary beyond that date. Appraisal is offered at the sole discretion of the RadioShack Trade & Save Program. All trade-ins are final. Not available where prohibited by local law. See participating stores for details.
Pretty good, if you ask me!
