We took our boxed up iPhone 4 into our local Best Buy and went to Customer Service and asked where they did the phone trade-ins.  The Customer Service Rep said he could help us and had us sit down on some seats and the kids sat on a bench.  He looked at the phone, looked up the information and trade-in value for the phone and then quoted us the amount for the Best Buy gift card.  I couldn’t believe how easy and quick it was!  If we wanted, we could even use the store credit and upgrade to a newer phone with our carrier.  How cool is that?

    What?! I never knew this, what a good idea! We have so many old phones laying around that my girls use as pretend phones, lol. They probably aren’t worth much now, but if we had known about this earlier we could have traded them in right away. Good to know for next time, thanks!
