Most wireless subscribers are due for a discounted cell phone upgrade once every two years. However, not everyone has the desire to upgrade their cellular device.

In a previous article, wrote a guide on how to make a living buying and selling used cell phones. Yes, it is possible to earn a full-time salary from flipping phones. If you’re less ambitious, you can still earn some side income from flipping used cell phones.
You can find great deals to buy and sell phones on Ebay, Craigslist, and Swappa. These three sources will create the best arbitrage opportunities for your business. However, at some point you may want to open up to new markets and increase your sales.
Many businesses already do this. For example, look at some of the top online buyback websites such as Gazelle, Technollo, and BuybackWorld. These businesses are setup to offer consumers cash for their used cell phones. The consumer mails in their phone, and the business sends them a check after they inspect it.
Building a website allows you to expand your brand and gain trust as well as online recognition. Even if you are still conducting most of your business on eBay and Craigslist, by labeling your ads with your brand name and a website, consumers are more likely to trust you. Lets face it, a stranger on Craigslist will be more comfortable selling you their cell phone and meeting up with you if you have a website explaining who you are and your services. This guide is meant for [Read more…]
When selling a used cell phone or tablet, it is important to know the fair value price of your device. This simply means that you want to determine what your device is worth on the buyers market and how much cash someone is willing to give you in exchange.
Buying and selling used cell phones is almost like a game. As a seller, you want to sell your mobile device for as much cash as you can. And on the other side of the transaction, the buyer wants to buy your mobile device for as little as possible. In order for a deal to be completed, both sides will have to meet somewhere in the middle.
My girlfriend recently found an older iPhone 4 in her night table from a few years ago. A while back she had dropped it in the toilet (I don’t understand why girls frequently drop their phones in the toilet?). She was up for an upgrade so she didn’t have to use her insurance to get a replacement. Her phone was water damaged; however it was still functioning. After she had dried it out, the phone would turn on but the screen’s colors were washed out.
Fast forward to a week ago. The phone was still sitting in our bedroom because she never realized that she could sell a broken cell phone. I decided that the phone has been collecting enough dust and it was time to earn a little bit of extra cash. The iPhone 4 is now very outdated. It is a white Apple iPhone 4 16 GB for AT&T. She still has the original Apple box and charger, however the Apple earphones are long gone.

1. Where Can I get the most money for my used cell phone?
You can get the most cash from selling your used cell phone from Craigslist. The runner-up is eBay; however, eBay has selling fees as well as PayPal transaction fees. There aren’t any fees associated with selling your phone on Craigslist. You should be able to sell your phone for the same amount on Craigslist as you would on eBay. The downside of Craigslist is that you will have to filter through all the spam responses you receive and low-ball offers to find legitimate buyers. Additionally, you will have to meet the buyer in person to make the exchange. I recommend you meet the buyer at a public place such as a shopping mall. The best place to meet is at a wireless store, such as as the Verizon Store so the buyer can activate the phone on their account at the same time of the exchange.
