Trade in your iPhone for cash and cover the cost of the iPhone 4!

Get cash for iPhone trade in

Over on the Gear Live Twitter account, we’ve been talking about a partnership we would be forming with Gazelle so that those of you with an original iPhone, iPhone 3G, or iPhone 3GS could trade in your device for cash. Why would you wanna do that? Well, with the set to be released in about two weeks, the easiest way to upgrade is to sell your current device to get cash to put down towards the new one. In fact, depending on the condition of your current model, you could even walk away with enough money to cover the cost of a new iPhone 4, and have some left over to put in the bank (or to buy a case or something.) If you want to take a look at what you could get for trading in your current iPhone, here’s the list:

Just choose your iPhone model above, and full in the four questions that ask about the condition of your phone, and you’ll see the amount that you will be paid for your device. If you are cool with it, accept the offer, and you ship your phone. Couldn’t get any easier.

Until now there have been limited options for recycling old cell phones--send it back to the manufacturer, send it to one of a number of Web sites that offer cash for your used electronics, or go to the cell-phone store and hand it over. EcoATM, an automated e-cycling station that just opened in the Nebraska Furniture Mart, is the easiest solution yet. The ATM, which is the first station to be installed by San Diego startup EcoATM, identifies cell phones, gives them an estimated secondary market value, and provides payment in the form of cash or an in-store credit. In the event that the phone no longer holds value--if it's old or there are too many signs of wear--it heads to a recycling bin and a tree is planted in your name. So far, Nebraska's EcoATM has been a hit, with 23 phones being recycled on its first day of operation in late September. The company's CEO, Eric Rosser, tweeted on Saturday that "The EcoATM is fast and easy, but even so there was a line today to recycle phones for $'s." EcoATM is planning a larger rollout of the system later this year in San Diego, Texas, Washington state, and Vermont. Expect to see EcoATM's in big box stores around the country next year. In the future, the machines might be able to handle everything from MP3 players to laptops.
