Sell Your Old Phone

Get the most money for your old cellphone !

So you’ve placed an order for one of the two new iPhones that have just been released – the iPhone 5c or iPhone 5S. What can you do with your current phone once that precious new electronic arrives in the mail? Make some money, of course! You can easily sell your outdated iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 instead of just banishing them into your collection of old dusty phones in the back of your desk drawer. Here are some options to resell your old gadgets:

  1. Amazon – Amazon offers some grand resale values for your used iPhones and pays you in the form of Gift Cards. All you are required to do is to fill up a form regarding the quality and condition of your device. After that you need to pack and ship the device to Amazon which is for free. Once they receive it, an Amazon Gift card is credited to your account.
  2. eBay - eBay offers a new service called ‘My Gadgets’ which allows you to build an online inventory of your electronics and guides you in figuring out the best time to sell particular items. This service calculates the current value of your listed items based on the sales data trends and average selling price information according to recent sales of eBay itself. ‘My Gadgets’ has a ‘Sell It with Ease’ tool that generates an eBay listing from within your My Gadget collection using pre-populated product information and current sales trends to determine a reasonable price.
  3. Apple - Apple joined this market by introducing its Reuse and Recycle program, where it makes a concession in price of a new iPhone after the customer trades-in an old one. This is available only in Apple Stores in the U.S.
  4. NextWorth and Gazelle – NextWorth and Gazelle are the two most admired websites that entirely deal with purchasing old gadgets. Although both sites may not offer you the best resale price, they offer to ship your iPhone to them for free and as an extra benefit they also erase all of your private data from the device. Another advantage of these sites is that they let you lock-in your price 30 days before, so that you don’t have to part with your iPhone right away if you’re still using it or shopping around.

There are a number of other options available like Best Buy, Walmart, Craigslist, RadioShack, Totem,,,, etc. Bottom line, with the wide number of options available in the market for reselling your old iPhone, just go for it!

Quick tips before you resell:

  • Make the resell soon before the market gets bombarded with the old iPhones and it devalues in price.
  • Do your homework and shop around for the best purchase price
  • Erase all your personal data from the iPhone before you sell it in order to avoid data security problems.

Enjoy your new iPhone and don’t forget to resell your old one!
