Default Best website for buying a used cell

Sorry if it's been asked, I didn't see anything in search...

What do you gents recommend?

I'm looking for a decent 4g smartphone, preferably no more than $250 or so, android based and Sprint compatible. Looking for used or refurbed...

I need to ditch this 4s and don't want to pay early upgrade fees or ETFs. My heart is set on something comparable to the galaxy S3, but paying outright for a new device without a contract change just isn't in the cards right now.

Thanks guys

Craiglist. It will cheaper than any website. Just look for one with some blemishes. Assuming your 4s is in good condition @ 16gb. It would really only cost u 100 give or take to get a mint s3 in nyc from craiglisting.

I'm assuming the $100 is the difference between selling his 4s and buying the S3? Otherwise, I'm buying my next used celly from NYC!

That's going to take a while

Pros - Right off the bat though - menus and settings well thought out and easy to navigate.

Multitasking

Video, email and phone at once....

Voice is 5 times better than Siri - did not mis spell a single word out of about 40, and it types as you speak, so no proof reading at the end.

Screen clarity, color and brightness need I say more?

Speakers - objectively speaking, the clarity is much better than the 4s. I mean, they're cell phone speakers, so no bose type experience here, but quality is much better.

Calendar - so easy to add/edit/appointments..

I haven't had to zoom to read anything yet. Text is sharp and clear.

UPGRADEABLE STORAGE!!!!

Cons - not really a con, but this is a full fledged OS. Learning curve will be steep, but worth it so far.

Size - this is truly a "phablet" but strangely enough it feels fine. I'll be using bluetooth the majority of the time, so that alleviates part of the issue.

Not a great fan of the defender's belt clip either, feels like it could come undone easily.

Kk -that's all for now.
