This. Swappa is a great resource to see what phones are selling for.

I use Swappa for almost all of my tech buys and sells. It is free to list and $10 for a sell (paid for by the buyer, so if you list for $200, the buyer sees the price as $210). So you just pay shipping (and technically $10 since you lost out on buyer's $10 to Swappa). eBay takes like 10% + shipping. I always forget this until I get my eBay invoice and realize I took huge losses when I thought I broke even. I sell a $300 tablet, I end up with like $245 after eBay fees, shipping, and PayPal fees. Craigslist is good if you're in a city, but it is terrible for rural areas. Sometimes I find good deals on there, but when I'm selling, no one wants to pay me asking price.

Thanks fellas. The phones are mint.
And you were spot on when you said people kept asking for a cheaper price.
But to be honest I just sold them for what I owed to t-mobile, as I just wanted out of their
Financing because I has a bad experience on their network lol.
But they just finally sold about an hour ago. He called himself a "phone geek" so I'm sure he knew what a deal it was!!

That's definitely the best way to sell anything.

So out of curiosity what would you ask for or
What would you pay for one? Something fair obviously under googles price tag.
Assuming they are mint condition lol

I would suggest you to go through the online selling rates on E bay or Amazon , do a research on the maximum selling price. You would get to know the current rates I am very sure.

Phones were sold about 14 hours ago.

While this didn't "specifically" break any rules with regards to selling on the site, it was very, very close. Even so much as listing the price at an almost invitation for PMs about it type of nature.

Regardless, the phones are sold, Thread Closed.
