If you have an old smartphone that you don’t use anymore or want to get one that is updated, then you might be wondering where you can sell it.
There are a few different ways to market your smartphone and the amount you receive will depend on the age, condition, and the buyer. You might need to base your decision on how soon you need to collect the payment and in what form.
Here are some different ways that you can get rid of those old devices or trade in for a newer model.
Sell To Retailer
If you have your eye on an item that you may want at a retailer that provides this service, then this may be a way you could put some money towards that item.
Check Out Some Websites
Some websites are dedicated to purchasing used devices to refurbish.
Gazelle.com is a straightforward site to use, will buy your device, and send you a box for free shipping. Keep in mind that they only accept specific models and capabilities to make sure your device matches the requirement accurately to be reimbursed.
Swappa.com is another website that will buy your fully functional smartphone for a respectable price.
USell.com will buy any cell phone in any condition.
Check out these sites along with many others to determine which will give you the best offer for your device.
You may have noticed an unusual looking kiosk at your local supermarket.
There is a kiosk, such as Eco ATM, that will buy your device, whatever condition it is in, and will pay you cash immediately.
The only thing that you need to provide is the device, a state ID, and some information about the device.
Using a kiosk is probably the most convenient way to finally get rid of those old cell phones that are piling up in the corner of your home.
Keep in the mind that this option may pay less for your device then selling it to a retailer or a buyer.
If you need cash fast, this would be the quickest, but you might want to shop around to get the most money.
Sell It Yourself
If you want to get the most out of your money and have the time to sell, then you may decide to try to find a buyer on your own.
To help, you could use some selling tools such as eBay, Offer Up, or Craigslist to post your device for sale.
When selling your phone make sure that you unlock it and provide the seller with all the necessary information about the make, model, previous supplier, storage capacities, display size, and the manufacturer number.
Trade With Cellular Provider
If you are wanting to upgrade to a better cell phone or are looking to switch providers, then you might want to trade in your smartphone.
You will only get a small fraction of the value, but you can use the amount towards the other upgraded phone.
Give To Charity
Although you won’t be paid for your phone, another great option is to give your smartphone or electronic device to charity. Many charities will take your smartphone in any condition.
Cell Phones for Soldiers connects soldiers with their families.
Hope Phones recycles devices to help fund health care programs in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. According to their website, every smartphone that is donated provides ten new phones for doctors and nurses in twenty-one countries.
You can also do a quick search online and check if there are any local charities that you may want to help fund.
I hope these options to sell your smartphone are helpful and that you will be able to make a wise decision.
Search around your home for other unneeded devices to raise the amount that you could potentially receive. Make sure that before you turn in your devices that you erase your information and set it to factory settings to prevent any of your pictures or private information from getting into the wrong hands.
Consider all these options and shop around for the best offer.
