    OK, I'm selling my unlocked (byAT&T) 32GB L 1520 which is in super condition. I have everything that came with the phone including the supplied charger has never even been used and is still bundled up. I'm tired of the issues that come with syncing on my Macs...and now after installing Yosemite I can't sync at all, never mind the clunkiness and limitations I've always dealt with. It's an issue a number of us have and there's no fix in sight so I'm reluctantly moving on. For purposes of eBay and Craigslist, what should I ask for it? (I'm not the greedy type, if that helps). TIA all. I'll be back with WP sometime in the future but absolutely need to do something about this now. And no well-meaning troubleshooting advice now please, I'm done with this combo for now.

    Swappa should give you a good price, I just picked up my second rm-938 for $415(mint condition), the AT&T version will sell for a bit less

    Stay away from eBay. They really have ramped up fees and you just loose out on too much of the price. They charge you a percentage on shipping. Ticks me off because I charge people $5 for Priority Mail and at the post office I pay $8 or more. I then have to pay eBay a percentage on a loss leader. Stupid and greedy. Look at eBay closely. It's all people running businesses in bulk now. Individuals are getting squeezed out by the pricing.

    I do look at eBay for price comparisons only. Also look at Swappa for current prices. Consider posting on Swappa. I'm glad I joined (worldspy99 recommended it) as I sold a phone fast and at a fair price when I used them.

    Also try the Marketplace here... There is lots of interest in RM-940. You know it would be going to a fan at least!

    All that said - If you have the wireless charger and charging case (it's unclear from your post what type of charger you refer to) $425 - $450

    Without a wireless charger and charging case $400

    You didn't mention any accessories like protective case(s), body armor, screen protectors... Include them in the description and add no more than 50% of what you paid for them into the price of the phone.

    I know AT&T charged you considerably more for the phone if bought off contract. However, it is used. I looked up some pricing before writing this post. I think it also takes a hit due to RM-938 pricing for BNIB and the number of those used units now selling.

    You guys are a bit optimistic on pricing, good luck getting more than $300. That's the problem with windows phones, great for buyers, bad for sellers. Average price on swappa between 260-280. What they ask vs what you get is what to look at. Nice phone, i want one.

    Swappa says mint is up to $420. Buy Nokia Lumia 1520 (AT&T) in US > Swappa

    ​Considering $400 is $189 less than AT&T off contract and $99 less than RM-938 I think that is a good ballpark.

    Hey all, thanks for the replies. I didn't know Swappa existed so I'll throw it out on there later. I assume the average selling Swappa price to reflect a 16GB L1520 in Good condition so in that context, it's not too surprising. We shall see...

    Whatever you do dont sell on eBay. Fees are way too high there. Sold one item and won't sell anymore

    I've sold somewhere around 70 phones on eBay. Yes, the fees bite, but you also have a huge market which means you'll likely get a little more for your sale. Everyone knows about eBay, but how many people have heard of Swappa? Here's one example:

    I didn't know Swappa existed
    Plus, selling on eBay is hassle free compared to the others. You list it, it sells and the buyer pays with PayPal, and you ship. No haggling on price. No contact at all is necessary in most cases. There's a reason why eBay is popular.

    I got $275 for my unlocked ATT 1520 back in October. There isn't much interest in them unfortunately.
