Default Water Damaged iPhone 4 worth anything?

I just realized we have an iPhone 4 laying around that was replaced after it had water damage. It was a Verizon unit. The screen and all other components are in great condition.

Is it worth anything and how do I go about getting the most money for it?

Neither phone is worth anything, unless you sell to a re-store guy who buys old phones and fixes them.

...so, it is worth something.

Do I just sell on eBay or try locally on CL?

Plenty of places buy old phones. Just do a search. Don't expect much. Maybe just $20 or so. Still better than a sharp stick in the eye.

I just sold a Galaxy S3 that had a shattered screen for $150. People will buy broken phones on ebay. just make sure to state all the defects to cover yourself

a phone with a broken screen is worth much more than a phone with water damage. a phone with water damage will have its internal components corroded. if it won't power on, there's probably not much of a chance it could be reused. you'd basically be parting it out for its back and front glass.

I heard that you put the water damaged phone in a bag of rice. Then after you go to sleep asians are drawn to the rice and then fix your phone too.

that only works if you get it in the bag of rice within a few minutes to an hour...not half a day

And if you don't power it off and on before you put it in the rice. My droid kicked the bucket after I dropped it in a cklean toilet for 2 seconds. It was fine, everything on the screen looked fine. I pushed the button to turn the screen off, and then pushed it again to turn it back on, I guess that's whn it got fried. 3 days in the rice didn't help it, I would hve shot the asians had they csme in my house though.

this phone has been sitting for almost a year after it got water damage. we tried the rice trick afterwards and it didn't work.

the phone does have SOME functionality, though, because it will vibrate whenever I move the switch on the side. for all I know, it could be running and just won't display anything.
