How RadioShack May Help You To Buy An iPhone 4

In the past, people have been able to pay for their own iPhone addiction by selling their obsolete hardware for prices nearing (or above) the retail value of the new one.

They would sell it to people they know through friends, on craigslist, on eBay or even through iPhone forums. However, selling to people you do not know on the internet can have mixed results. Many people have been scammed.
Right now, RadioShack has a "Trade & Save Program" that will give you a gift card for your old iPhone. Here's the breakdown of monetary values if your iPhone is cosmetically flawless and you send in your charger:
  • 32GB iPhone 3GS - $329.10
  • 16GB iPhone 3GS - $256.84
  • 16GB iPhone 3G - $185.94
  • 8GB iPhone 3G - $149.70
  • 16GB iPhone - $128.78
  • 8GB iPhone - $103.15
  • 4GB iPhone - $83.94
If you have any kind of damage, including scratches, the gift card value goes down. Other kinds of phones and tech devices can also be traded in.
So, what do you do with that gift card? Well, there are reports that RadioShack is already accepting preorders on the iPhone 4 with the purchase of a $50 gift card. So, the trade-in program could go a long way to help you with the purchase of an iPhone 4.
For many reasons that I don't want to get into right now, I will not be able to take advantage of this program. But, if you couldn't upgrade to the iPhone 4 because of a shortage of cash this program could really help.
