Is it time for me to sell my iPhone 4S 16GB now before the iPhone furore starts whilst it’s still got it’s value? Obviously iPhones still retain a good second-hand resale value, but that’s going to degrade with arrival of the 5, right?
I popped on to Envirofone today to see how much they’d give me for the current model. The answer? £325. Not too shabby.
I’ve probably got about £1,000 back from Envirofone by sending them a load of phones (and iPads) that I just don’t need. They’re terrifically reliable and quick at paying too.
Since Three are so bloody awful at managing what I actually want, I need to do the whole equipment upgrade nonsense myself. I shouldn’t have to. I should be able to tell them to get me the new iPhone when it arrives. But no. I have do manage all the stupid logistics.
So is now the right time, do you think?
Or do you reckon I should wait until the ‘new’ iPhone has actually arrived? I wonder how much this will knock down the resale value? £50 or £100 perhaps? What’s your view?
