Ebay has a selling service for members, where you can use a valet to sell your used mobile devices. The service is supposed to make it easier for you to sell your used cell phones and tablets. Valets research listings for items like yours on eBay and are considered professional Ebay sellers. They look at items that have sold within the last 90 days. Based on this research, valets determine how to best list your items, including how to price them. Items are given multiple chances to sell on eBay for up to 2 weeks. When items are relisted, Valets reduce the price to increase the chances of selling.

Earlier today, Tim Cook introduced the new iPhone to those in attendance of Apple’s annual media event at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. For the first time, Apple premiered not one, but two different iPhone models. The first model, the iPhone 5c, is a less expensive version of the iPhone. In previous years, Apple reduced the price of the prior year’s iPhone as an economical solution.

The iPhone 5C is a uni-body polycarbonate (plastic version of the iPhone 5) smartphone, manufactured in a range of colors (blue, red, yellow, green, white), and sporting virtually identical internals as the iPhone 5. The 5c will be available in 16GB or 32GB, and will be priced at $100 and $200, respectively.
