i dont understand why would anyone trade an iphone for a droid, all droids are hold on to w a lot of excitment and anticipation but a week after they come out all the reviews express how much they crash, battery drains and weird sounds coming out the speakers, WTF? nothing against droids, just saying cuz a lot of people hate on iphone when they were the pioneers and the only ones who have actually been able to pull this s**t off. just dont hate on iphones, they r quality phones NOT quantity phones like droids

Article aside, why anyone uses that horrible website is beyond me. A fully functional Evo with a cracked camera cover only gets $5! That's a $30 fix on a phone that can be sold for well over $150. Complete ripoff/scam. People need to learn to use craigslist or eBay, or just trade into Target or Radioshack or Best Buy for some real trade-in value.

Looks like the control chip inside their heads has gone off their islave pfrogramming has gone off forcing them to buy the 'new' phone with slightly better camera. Most funny off all is that a whole load of even dumber islave are about to spend a fortune and continually dropping calls buying the con that us iphone 4 of these other fools!!!!

Gazelle site is a rip off lol
They'll give you 250 max for your iPhone 4 in PERFECT condition vs
The 400+ you could make by selling on eBay or craiglist.
