I have misplaced my iphone a few times, and its always so frustrating. And expensive. What is more frustrating is that once I bought a replacement, I ended up finding it a few months later. I was ok since I got the upgraded model, but now I have a really expensive toy for my kids.
I just found out that the Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores (like the kiosk in my mall, which is separate from the store itself) has a trade in program. You can bring in your old phones (not just the iphone) and they will give you up to $200 in store credit! I used my $65 to get a new case and phone charger. I was so thrilled, and I had no idea that they did this everyday. I have walked past that kiosk a few times at my mall in Idaho Falls and never paid attention to it.
Another feature I like is that the staff DO NOT get paid commission, and they also carry all of the cell phone providers, so its a great one stop shop to compare what each company has to offer for plans and incentives.
To find a Best Buy Mobile specialty store, go to www.BestBuyMobile.com and gather up your phones!
