550 dollars for a used phone is perfectly fine if its an iphone but its overpriced if its android.

That makes no sense.

Can you even validate that claim with any reason besides a tired variation of
"Apple > Android?"

Well New iPhone 4S are $650 at carriers full retail. Is $100 all you deduct from the total price if it's used? I'm thinking $150+

I'd want at least 20% off for it being used, regardless of OS.

Buying it brand new is worth it just for the 1 year warranty instead of the 90 day referb warranty.

I understand it's off contract but does it means that it's also unlocked for use with any carrier or is it only for AT&T?

Only AT&T I'm guessing. With Sprint and Verizon, they would have the hassle of checking each and every phone's ESN number.

Wow!!!! never mind the price. Finally!!!! something we can all agree upon. For $550, just pawn something else for $100, and purchase a brand new device. I'm pretty sure game stop obtained these devices probably from some desperate soul for about $250. No deal here, move on.

I remember being a GameStop employee ( former store manager ) we did not give that much for the iPhone 4S trade-ins. $250 - $300 was possible if you wanted store credit, but if you wanted cash you would lose 20%

Then again, that f**ked up model goes for consoles and games too. I'm sad I used to work there.
