Welcome to the forums.

You could try to sell the device. I would be upfront and let the buyer know the device has water damage but is currently working.

Another option is to sell the brand new one and keep using your old one.

Great idea!

Plus with liquid damage phones, you never know when things will go wrong. And if they do, your on your own! Liquid damage voids the warranty. I would just use the new one, keep the old one just in a case.

You can always fully-disclose the condition of the water-damaged one on eBay and buy some accessories for your new one.
