    Are you kidding me, $52 for my S II. not a chance. I would put it in the drawer til the day I die before I would let it go for that price. I know I'm a few devices behind the times, but to depreciate 80 - 90% in less than two years give me a break

    Just are they doing with all these used phones? Seems like there would not be that big of a market for them but there must be somewhere.

    My guess is recycle from banged up devices and have the others refurbished and sold to companies that deal overseas. There's a big market for clean used devices.

    Used to be a market on xda. Guys would buy devices and sell them either locally or overseas. Profit is profit.

    I would think that overseas would be a good bet.

    Lol. iPhones' resale value is incredible. They're the Hondas of cellphones and the android devices are the KIA's

    Actually, that's about right for an S2. You're only going to get maybe a $150 with private selling. So the trade in price is correct.

    $2146

    32 gig Iphone 5's are going from $500-600 depending on the condition on Craigslist. Something to consider. They sell quick specially if its unlocked.
