I think he sold the 4s for that amount...still has the 5, but wishes he kept the 4s.

About a hour or so running around this morning

Sold iphone 4s @ $420
IPhone 4s 16gb white unlocked, Plus a mophie charging case & a bumper case, still had apple care warranty till Oct 2013..All original contents, boxes etc..


Nexus 4 I traded for the iphone 5 32gb unlocked, Seller posted it on craigslist at $550. Seller didnt care for IOS and wanted to go back to android, I sent him my link nexus 4 posted at $500. He did his research and was interested, iphone checked out clean esn etc. Very nice guy mid 40s or so, met up with him at his work and made the trade.

After that paid someone $5 to cut my sim to nano, everything up and running fine. Iphone 5 I'm getting use to it, iphone 4s screen size ratio was better. Would I have bought an iphone 5, NO, but it was a good trade. Although I don't have the need for 32gb of storage.

Iphone 4s I would rather have kept it, but for what I paid I can't complain.

Nexus 4: device I received was pretty damn solid, excellent for the price! I may consider it in the future if I go back to android. May just sell the iphone 5 and switch back over. Personally I was VERY content with the iphone 4s, no need to customize, or play with daily. The day I used the nexus 4 I do miss some android things.
Too many phones in the past year!

yes it's a pain when charging in car and connecting auxiliary input. I keep the phone vertically. Either way i'll have wires sticking out from both ends.

I don't know how much longer I can wait. Might get an S3.

S3 (international or NA) vs N4.

Can't figure out whether to switch from a GNex... the phone (running a custom 4.1 rom) does everything I want and doesn't slow down at all. Hard to justify getting a new phone, especially given that I'd have to ditch my grandfathered real unlimited data plan and Verizon in general (in the Bay Area ATT&T is almost unusable)...

I know the feeling, the only reason I switched when I did was because I broke my phone for the third time and I was out of insurance claims :what:

I'm so glad i did tho
