I purchased 4 iphones from www.shopgoodwill.com, the following was included in the lot:

1 iphone 6

2 iphone 5

1 iphone 4

I won the auction for $41.25 including shipping.  All I knew was that the phones were untested, so I was really hoping that the iphone 6 would power on, but I knew based on research that even if it did not power on it would still be worth money.

TIP:  The iphone 5 and 6s are worth money even if there is no power, cracked screen, and/or icloud and network locked.  The iphone 3 and 4s are worth $10-$20 per phone broken.

I listed the phones separately each in a 7 day auction.

The iphone 6, did not power on, I did try a new battery but it still did not turn on– The starting price was $39.99 plus $4.99 shipping, it had 106 views, 4 bids, and sold for $48.98.

The iphone 5c, powered on, but was icloud locked – The starting price was $29.99 including shipping, it had 90 views, 2 bids, and sold for $31.

The iphone 5 A1428, did not power on, I also tried a new battery with this one and there was still no power – The starting price was $14.99 plus $4.99, it had 42 views, 3 bids, and sold for $21.49.

The iphone 4, was restored, but had a cracked screen – the starting price was $19.99 with free shipping, it had 40 views, 1 bid, and sold for $19.99.

The total cost to buy and sell these phones was $68.68, the phones sold for $121.46, so I made $52.78.  It cost $50 to fill up my SUV, so the profit from these phones can go towards filling up my car so I can take my kids to fun places.
