Best Price To Sell or Trade In Your Old iPhone

Newsflash: Apple now has an iPhone 5!

Ok so this is totally last week's news but like many of you, I'm just dying to get my hands on this latest model. In order to do so, I must find a way to get cash for my iPhone 4.

So with visions of a 4-inch Retina display and LTE wireless technology dancing in my head, I set out to find the most money for my two year old model.

Sell, sell, sell

Here's a list of companies that will give you cash, gift cards or store credit for your old devices. I'm using my iPhone 4 (not to be confused with the 4s) as a reference. It's worth it to note that my phone does not have scratches or dings and is considered to be in GOOD or GREAT condition.
