uSell offered me $49.95 for my Droid X in perfect condition with all cables and docks and accessories.
Swappa offered me $140.

I can't believe they offered you that much. you should take it while you still can, unless you can sell it on ebay.

You can get a lot more money on eBay. Sure it's more work but they payoff is worth it.

Buy poplular phones. It's the same advice when you lease a car -- the more popular the car, other things being equal, the higher the resale value.
If you get a cell phone you like and it's not popular, there's only so much you can do when it comes to the resale value.

Recycling companies don't always offer the highest price but they are hassle free compared to selling your old cell privately on say eBay where you can get comeback from the buyer if they have issues. There are more and more recycling companies appearing online in America all of the time so using a cell phone recycling price comparison site such as sellmycellphones.com can help you get the best price.
