OK, here's one: I still own my first iPhone, a 4. Never upgraded before. I was thinking of doing T-Mobile's deal of zero down for a 5S since I'm already on TM. I'm wondering the easiest way to transfer all my songs, photos, etc. Just do a regular backup with the 4 and a synch with the 5S once I have it?
And will Apple actually buy my iPhone 4, or do they just give credits/gift cards?

Yes, that should do it. You can always do a USB-connected backup into iTunes; then do a restore from that backup on any (new or otherwise) iPhone and it will "become" exactly like the original. You should get your camera roll, plus any locally stored albums and photos; your text messages; saved passwords for WiFi networks; data that's privately stored in apps as well (such as PDFs etc stored in GoodReader) really, any content that's stored in your original iPhone will be backed up and restored onto the new one.
The backup doesn't include your actual apps, but when you restore, iTunes copies them all from local storage on your Mac into the new iPhone. You'll need to sign into the App Store on the new iPhone (this password may be remembered, or not, but you're always forced to enter it again after a restore) for the apps to work, of course. You'll also have to re-enter an iCloud password. If you have separate email address/logins for both iCloud and the App Store, you'll have to re-enter passwords for both.
I'd figure you'd get a credit for the old iPhone4 but not cash. If you were getting the 5S from them, they'd just deduct it from what you'd be paying them for it.
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).
