Need cash for the iPhone 5? This gadget resell site will help you calculate the cost of the upgrade and what you can expect to get for your iPhone 4S -- and other devices
With the iPhone 5 launch just days away (slated for Sept. 12), Apple fans everywhere are prepping for the latest upgrade by cashing in on the old 4S version. We recently featured a quick guide on the best spots to sell your old iPhone, but we wanted to take a minute to mention one called Glyde, which just popped up on our radar, for its above average resale rates.
Currently, Glyde is offering a quick and easy way for potential iPhone 5 buyers to figure out the total cost of their upgrade. After entering a few bits of information regarding the condition of your iPhone 4S, the site will also provide an estimate on how much cash back you can expect for your used handset.
As it stands, an iPhone 4S 64GB in “good condition” has a going rate of $403.75. Not surprisingly, Glyde has had a 62 percent spike in iPhone 4S listings during the last week alone. You can sell other devices on Glyde as well.
We also really dig the site's "Speed Sale" feature, which guarantees the sale of your gadget within seven days. You won't typically get the highest possible offer with this option (according to Glyde, a Speed Sale will secure you anywhere between $70 and $313), but it's a surefire bet when you're in a pinch (you know, like when you waited until the very last minute to make room for the iPhone 5).
