Hurry Up - Trade In Your iPhone 4 ASAP, Resale Prices Tumbling

As the iPhone 4S hits markets in North America, Europe and Japan today, resellers are seeing a wave of users looking to get rid of their old iPhone models. Consequently trade-in prices for previous iPhones are rapidly dropping, so interested users must hurry.

Trade-in website NextWorth has changed its offer of $250 for an iPhone 4 and now customers can only get $200 for a 16 GB iPhone 4 (opens in new tab) and $215 for a 32 GB Iphone 4; in both cases, the handset must be in good condition, PC Mag reports.

Gazelle, on the other hand, is willing to give $222 for a 32 GB iPhone 4, but the device must be in "flawless" condition, that means the iPhone "still looks and functions like you just removed it from factory packaging with a screen that is absolutely pristine."

The "good condition" note allows small scratches on the body or the display. eBay Instant Sale also dropped the prices for iPhone 4 deals. If a week ago, customers could have made a good deal and received $307 for an iPhone 4, now they will only get $178.5 for a 16GB version in good condition.

So if you plan to trade in your old iPhone, that wasted time could be expensive.
