Trade In, Trade Up Your iPhone
We’ve offered our fair share of rumors and speculations on the new iPhone, but most people agree it will be announced on Monday at WWDC 2010. So what do you do with your old phone when you upgrade? A company out of Kansas City, iResQ, offers an option to buy back your 3G or 3GS iPhone without the headaches, hassles, or risks associated with Craigslist or eBay. iResQ offered a similar program in 2008 when the iPhone 3G was released.
The program from iResQ seems to be fairly simple and straight forward and includes the amounts they will pay for various iPhone models.
- Fill out their short form with your information
