    Default old cell phone - sell?

    I just upgraded to the s5. My s3 is in perfect condition. Should i sell on Craigslist and at what price? Would there be any reasons to keep it?

    If you don't need it anymore, just sell it. I usually sell my old devices to help with 'financing' the new one hehe. As to what price, it's up to the market. Just browse for ads selling the same model IN YOUR CITY and get your price range there (even if in pristine condition, if you sell this for 50 bucks more than what others are offering in the same area, chances are it'll never sell).

    You could also try to sell it to repair shops as they could use the parts.

    Oh, and very important. Check what the price is for a NEW phone for this model. The same as the old example applies; if you sell this used unit for 25 bucks less than what could get you a new one, chances are people are going to go for the new phone.

    I'd say it depends on what you can get for it. an S3 probably isn't worth much any more, and you might want to keep it as a backup device, in case your new phone gets broken, lost, or for some other reason doesn't work.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Check ebay. It's a global market and the prices of eBay are usually cheaper than what people in your area are selling for. About $120 on ebay(not including shipping). About $175-$200 (asking price) in my area. I would say sell. Price for that device is only going to go down. But, I would keep the $ to go towards a back up device unless you already have one.

    I know this thread is old but I wanted to update that I did indeed sell my Galaxy S3. Met the person at Verizon and they bought it for $175.

    I paid $99 for the S5 and sold my S3 for $175.....pretty good.

    I'm thinking that maybe the person that bought it didn't have insurance and needed to outright buy a phone to finish their contract? Who knows but I was happy.

    You got a good amount for your old s3. Now you have some spare cash for some accessories for your new phone, good deal.
