IIRC sprint can give you the iphone even though it cannot be activated on your plan

That's what we've all been trying to tell you.  It works, you don't need to change your plan until you try to activate it which you'll never do.

4 options, would have to research which has the biggest profit margin: http://shop.sprint.com/mysprint/shop/phone_wall.jsp?INTNAV=ATG:HE:Phones

I did a little research and while it is by no means conclusive, i think the bottom line is:

Iphone 4 8Gb sells for roughly $400- $100= Profit margin of $300

Iphone 4S 16Gb sells for roughly $500- $200= Profit margin of $300

Iphone 4S 32Gb sells for roughly $650- $300= Profit margin of $350


Iphone 4S 64Gb sells for roughly $700- $400= Profit margin of $300

You forgot the fees, if you are selling it on ebay - fees would be about $60 for the iPhone 4S 32GB

True, but even so the 4S (according to his research anyway) would still be the best bet.

Ebay had a promo going on that you paid no fees for the first sale you posted through your phone. Not sure it's still going on but I did it a week ago. Saved me some $$.

Yup, Also if its unlocked and offered to be sold internationally it could go for more, but then on internationally transactions there is a 4% paypal fee
