How can I sell used cell phones?

If you are upgrading phones, you can get rid of your old phone and get cash by selling your phone online. Before you sell your mobile phone, you can take some steps to ensure that your personal data is protected.

Sell your mobile phone online

Your old mobile cell phone will just be clutter in a drawer once you have upgraded your phone, so why not sell it online? Some types of cell phones make more money than others, obviously, but because different cords fit multiple phones, even used accessories can be sold for people who are looking for replacement phones and cords. Most people turn to Ebay when they are looking for a good deal, so list your wireless phone on Ebay to get rid of it quickly and get paid through PayPal. You can list any mobile, but smartphones sell better than older models. Be sure to note the phone's condition and if it is under contract. You can also sell your phone on Craiglist and in the Amazon Marketplace. Sometimes when you upgrade your phone, the phone company will let you get your new cell phone cheap because you can apply some of your old phone's value to the new phone you are purchasing. Then the mobile company can sell the phones as refurbished.

How to prepare your phone to be sold

While your phone is still powered on and working with your SIM card, you should take some pictures for your online listing to show that the phone is still working properly. After you have some pictures, you need to focus on getting your private details off of the phone. You do not know who will be buying your phone, but they will want to have their contacts, not yours. You should get all of your personal data off of your cell phone before you sell it. Obviously, you will remove the SIM card, but you will have a lot of data that is stored inside the phone. Be sure that you get all of the contact information and files that you need off of your phone, because once you wipe your phone clean, you will not be able to access the information again. You will want to clear the history of your web-browser if you have a smart phone. Before you sell your phone, you need to restore your phone to the manufacturer's settings. You should check with the manufacturer's website to learn how to reset your phone. Then check your phone to make sure that any store passwords are removed. Remove your SIM card, list your phone as a used phone on Ebay, Amazon's Seller Marketplace or Craigslist, and wait for a buyer to snap it up.
