Is it worth to trade in my Galaxy SII for HTC One S??

cookieq

The T-Mobile website evaluates my Galaxy S II for $155..

I think it is undervaluation because I paid it for $229.99..

Now, I want HTC One S so badly, but I don't want to pay the balance..

Do you guys have any idea, which it will make exchange my Galaxy S II for HTC One S??

    Why not just wait since the Galaxy S III is right around the corner.  Unless you just have to have an HTC Phone.

    Depreciation?

     

    If you paid 230 for your phone, that means you'll have to pay full price for the HTC One S (You get one subsidized device every 22 months on a CLASSIC plan).  Which will probably be $500-$600.  (I admit, I haven't looked for a price)

     

    There's no "trade this for that" option.

     

    So, keep that in mind with your decision.

    I have the Vibrant and the GS2 and quite frankly, I don't believe the GS3 is worth the upgrade. A littler larger battery, a little larger screen. Yeah, maybe a quad core processor for U.S.variant. The HD screen may be a little better. We are getting ICS soon so that will be the same as the GS3. Anyone else feel the same? I thought the GS2 was a worthy upgrade from the Vibrant and it sure was but the GS3 doesn't seem a large of a leap. I may wait for the fourth phone or may just not go with Samsung any longer. This fall I will have the option to get a good upgrade price on a new device. I may just wait to see what is out. Oh wait the GS3 will be availalbe and Jellybean will be out and we will be waiting 6 plus months for Jellybean update and the GS4 will be coming out. Seems like a bad pattern..ha

    You could probably sell your phone on craigslist for $200-$300. Don't take the $150.

    It really does come down to being up to you. You have to remember any electornic devices, and like cars decrease in value once they are no longer new. I personally don't like the hassle of dealing with buyers and selling an old phone. The trade in programs is a great way to help pay for your new device in a lot of aspects.
