With the launch of the iPhone 4S, no doubt millions of Apple fans will be flocking to stores to pick one up. Which then begs the question, “What should I do with my old iPhone?”

There’s no shortage of trade-in options. In-store trade-in is convenient, but usually gives you far less money. Online trade-in sites offer better prices than stores and will send you pre-stamped mailing materials for sending in your old phone. And online auction sites offer the best potential price, but you have the hassle of building your bid page and then dealing with the hassle of avoiding dubious buyers and managing the shipping on your own.

And that’s where comes in. Glyde is an online marketplace that offers the convenience of the trade-in sites with the value of an auction site.

Listing is easy – just find your product in the drop-down list, check a few boxes about its condition and hit “List for Sale”. Other than providing your personal information, there’s nothing else you need to do. Glyde generates the listing automatically with photographs and the product description.

When someone buys your phone, Glyde sends you a pre-addressed, pre-stamped mailer for shipping.

How much more will you get for your iPhone on Glyde? Here is a price comparison for a 16GB iPhone 4 in good condition as of October 8th, 2011:

  • Glyde - $310
  • eBay - $250-$350
  • Gazelle (online trade-In) - $186
  • Best Buy - $262 (gift card) or $170 (cash)

In addition to phones, Glyde also lets you buys and sell DVDs, video games, books, iPods and tablets (in case you want to sell your old Kindle to buy the new Kindle Fire).
