Apple offers iPhone trade-in plan in some European Apple Stores
Once you've answered all of the questions, you will receive a quote, in this case it came up in British Pounds. If you are happy with the price bid for your older Apple iPhone, you fill out more personal information to generate a prepaid shipping label. You have five days from the time the price is agreed upon, to send in your old iPhone. As an example, a 16GB black Apple iPhone 5 in perfect condition with no water damage, cracked glass or scratches, will fetch you 110GBP ($175.50 USD) with the power cord.
For those who would like the immediacy of turning in the older phone, getting a credit, and walking out of the store with a new model, this is now possible in certain European countries including the U.K.

For an iPhone 5 that is probably in good condition that is a seriously bad quote. Selling online would yield much better results at almost twice as much.

This kind of exchange scheme in India has quadrupled their sales but the only three things different are -
a) They are giving a fixed amount discount on purchase of your next iphone
b) They are accepting android as well as Apple devices
c) They are not claiming that its for the envoirnment
Wondering what will Cook do with all those Android phones..maybe give them to the Chinese child labourers on christmas at Foxconn ...or.... make a mountain of them and burn them at his next presentation to wake people up...
