Default trading a galaxy s3

Has anyone traded in a galaxy s3 for a galaxy s4 with verizon, and if so, what did they give for the s3? Thinking about trading to get the s4.

Blimey, what a rip off.

I just sold my old S2 to O2 Recycle (O2 is one of the big UK network providers) for the UK equivalent of $155 so $130 for an S3 is very poor value.

The only thing I would say is selling phones on eBay attracts fraudsters in vast numbers so be careful. I gave up using eBay to sell phones for this reason. There are a lot of companies that pay decent money for second hand phones in the UK and are perfectly respectable but I have no idea whether equivalent companies exist in the US.

Its pretty safe to say you should never sell a device to a carrier.

You'll always get more money from eBay /Craigslist

Game stores (UK) now take devices like phones and tablets. Not quite the same money as the recycle places but its cash in hand that instant

I've never used Gumtree. Do you have to meet up with people in person to exchange cash and phone? If not, how do you know you aren't going to be fleeced?

The good thing about using O2 recycle is that they pay a fair price and I know they aren't going to mess me about.
