BOSTON, Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for the anticipated launch of Apple's new iPhone, Gazelle (www.gazelle.com), the nation's leading consumer electronics reCommerce service, is launching a newly developed app that enables customers to sell their used iPhone right from their iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. The app, titled "Gazelle Gadget Trader" is compatible with iOS devices and can be downloaded from the app store.
The app is designed to easily calculate for customers how much their iPhone is worth in a matter of seconds. The app will even detect what iPhone you are using in order to facilitate an even quicker trade-in.

- The app will automatically detect your iPhone model and will provide you with an offer on the spot
- Answer a few quick questions to accept your offer and checkout
From there, customers ship their phone to Gazelle (packaging and shipping is free) and then get paid.
Gazelle expects a record number of iPhone trades as AT&T and Verizon customers alike look to upgrade to the anticipated new model. "The app makes it easy for you to trade in your phone anytime, anywhere, making it simpler than ever to offset the purchase of a new iPhone," said Israel Ganot, co-founder and CEO of Gazelle. "This app is part of our effort to roll out the red carpet for the millions of iPhone owners looking to upgrade. We want you to know that if you have a used iPhone, we're committed to giving you an easy, fast, and trusted service."
A new iPhone launch means big business for the reCommerce industry. Last summer, over 30,000 consumers traded iPhones into Gazelle to get cash for an upgrade to iPhone 4. This year, with so many generations of iPhone owners and many Verizon customers ready to take the leap to newer Apple technology, Gazelle expects trade-in fever to have an even more noticeable impact on the market. Gazelle takes steps to ensure all data is properly removed from every gadget it receives, and to ensure 100% of the items sent to Gazelle are responsibly reused or recycled.
Gazelle (www.gazelle.com), a service of Second Rotation, Inc., provides an easy, fast, and fair way for consumers to get cash for their unwanted electronic devices. Gazelle takes the risk and effort out of selling electronic gadgets online and provides its users with benefits such as free shipping and packaging and comprehensive identity/data removal.
