A Special Announcement!



We’ve been busy! We have another special announcement to make!


Following our announcement last week that we will be offering customer payments in Bitcoin, and to celebrate the release of the iPhone 6, we are very proud to announce that we will be rolling out ANOTHER new payment option in the very near future.


Coming in the next few weeks, if you choose to sell your iPhone to us, you will be able to be paid via Check, Paypal, Bitcoin OR you can donate your entire payment to any charity of your choice in the United States.


If you’re thinking of upgrading to an iPhone 6 model, or just have an old/broken/water damaged iPhone in a drawer somewhere, why not use that opportunity to turn your old iPhone into something wonderful? Simply get a quote from us here, receive your pre-paid box in the mail, place your device in the box and send it off. Designate the charity of your choice and our President, Ryan Wallace, will personally donate the quoted amount to that charity. 


We want to give you guys not only the best service we can, but also assist in helping turn unused, old or broken technology into something good in the world. Technology is good, Kindness and giving is good, new iPhones are good, good customer service is good! It’s all good!


To find a list of United States Charities, go here! 


We’ll be letting you know exactly when the charity payment option will be available in the next couple of weeks! We also might just have another special announcement up our sleeve, and we’ll be keeping you in the know with iPhone 6 AND iWatch rundowns, so keep an eye on us!

iPhone Antidote can now pay you in Bitcoin!





In an industry first and JUST in time for the release of the iPhone 6, we are very pleased to announce that we can now pay you in BITCOIN for your stinky old iPhone!


This is the perfect time of year to sell you old, broken, or water damaged iPhone so that you can get some cash to go right ahead and get the shiny new iPhone 6! Either of them! Or both of them! (The iPhone 6, if you haven’t been following, is believed to be coming in two sizes – 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch.) The new iPhone will be announced on September 9th and is believed to be released the following 19th September which is sooooo sooooooon.


Which is why we got our butts into gear and got to work so that we could offer the wildest range of payment options in the tech buyback industry! 


If you sell your iPhone to us, you can now be paid via Check, PayPal or the crypto-currency Bitcoin.


Bitcoin originally started as a peer-to-peer payment system in 2009, and although unregulated by a central bank or entity, Bitcoin is now beginning to be accepted widely in the commercial marketplace, from pizza here in San Francisco, to flights in Europe, electronics at TigerDirect, furniture at and even in the real estate market.  


Bitcoin is an especially good payment option for our customers here at iPhone Antidote since the payments are INSTANT and completely irreversible. You don’t need to wait for the check to clear or for the PayPal funds to be available and once the funds are in your account, they’re staying there.


Sweet, right?

Website Overstock now accepting bitcoin



Bitcoin, Bitcoin, Bitcoin. What are we to do with you? Not a lot of people know about you, far less understand you or how you work, you’re super unstable and yet you’re growing. You’re the new in thing to talk about in media and that somehow continues to be the new in thing to talk about as if you know what you’re talking about.


Honesty corner: We don’t really know what we’re talking about when it comes to Bitcoin, but this is what we do know: It’s a cybercurrency that is created, distributed and authenticated outside of banks or governments.



People mine for them using their own computers by assisting other people’s Bitcoin transactions. And then they have them, and they can spend them. Right? We’re learning! We feel like it might be a thing we really need to learn, because it’s moving from a thing that you read about on the internet, to a thing that people are using as proper currency on the internet quite quickly.


Case in point: Online discount retailer is now accepting Bitcoin. In fact, more than 800 purchases, equaling $130,000 were made in the first 24 hours the company was accepting the cybercurrency.


Patrick Byrne, the company’s chariman and CEO had this to say:


“Digital currency will be an important part of the future and Overstock is excited to be the first major online shopping retailer to accept it,” said Patrick Byrne, chairman and CEO. ”As one who believes in limited government, this attracts me because it is a form of money that no government mandarin can will it into existence.”


More retailers are saying they will be accepting Bitcoin – most recently the Sacramento Kings, making them the first professional sports franchise to accept them starting on March 1st this year in the team store and in ticket sales.


Kings owner Vivek Ranadive says accepting Bitcoins is the next step in allowing fans to leave their wallets at home. Solving situations like this one, at the very least;





Other companies such as Paypal are considering making the move to accepting the currency in the future. In the meantime they are perhaps waiting for it to stabilize, perhaps they too are unsure of what the consequences are of accepting the currency. On Thursday, one Bitcoin was worth approximately $850.


Meanwhile, Kanye West has sued, and won against similar cybercurrency Coinye for using his image. Silly Fish Sticks. Doesn’t he know it’s the way of the future? We could’ve all been using Coinye!
