The new iPhone 5 is imminent, so what do you do with the old iPhone 4? There are a number of options but many of them are timed, because everyday as the next iPhone approaches, the old one loses value. Rather than selling it, there are some creative things you can do with your old iPhone and I don’t mean blending it. This short post is going to go through ways you can resell your old phone and a few fun things you can do with it.
Sell your iPhone back to Apple
Yes, you can sell your iPhone or iPod back to Apple. They have a reuse and recycling program in which you can trade your old device for a gift card or use it to get a discount on your new iPhone or any Apple device. If your iPhone is destroyed and battered beyond recognition and function, Apple will recycle your phone for you but you won’t get squat for it.
Jailbreak your old iPhone
If you are not strapped for cash don’t sell your old iPhone, use it as a jailbreak device. Many people don’t want to risk jailbreaking their main phone so use it as a secondary phone. There are a lot of cool things you can do with your jailbroken device, check out some of the cool apps and tweaks on Cydia.
Sell on Amazon or eBay
You will get much more value for your money if you sell he iPhone yourself on eBay or Amazon. Other options include CeX and other trade-in stores that will take in your old device for cash or to trade in for other products.
Keep your old iPhone to try to test things you wouldn’t risk with your primary phone. Try installing some cool software, buy add-ons, opening it up and put it back together. Use it as a gaming device with all the app store games on it.
