Go ahead and get your old phone at the best price
As independent refurbishers, our trade-in values ​​are always higher than what your mobile network offers. Sometimes you might find a better deal by selling directly through a service like Facebook Marketplace, but there’s always a risk.

Factors affecting the value of mobile phones:

Original price
This is the most obvious place to start. How much was your phone worth when you first bought it? Depending on the age and condition of the equipment, you can expect to get a discount of 70% to 5% off the original price.

Model age
How long has it been since this phone was originally released? Telephone technology improves greatly every year. Old phones lack important features and are therefore worth less and less. Older phones are also more likely to be unsupported due to software updates. The longer it takes for a phone to be first released, the less valuable it is.

Health status
This is a big deal. If your phone is in good condition and doesn’t have any scratches, it will be worth more than a phone with obvious scratches. However, even if your old phone breaks, you can almost always get a small refund. To learn more, visit our Sell My Broken Phone page.

Popular phones from trusted brands like Apple or Samsung tend to retain their value longer. When people buy a cheap phone, they are more likely to buy the current model. But when people want to buy Apple’s flagship phone on a budget, they usually consider the iPhone, which has been around for a few years.

Important Features
Certain features may affect the resale value of your phone. For example, an older phone without 5G capabilities will depreciate much faster than a similarly priced 5G phone from the same year.

When is the best time to sell?

Cell phones lose value over time. So if you want to upgrade, don’t wait too long. As a rule of thumb, you’ll get the best deals on older phones before new models are released. When the new iPhones hit stores in September, the resale value of older iPhones dropped significantly. If you want to sell your old iPhone, be sure to trade it in before September.
