Amazon Trade-In Program Full Review

Just like several other online buyback programs, Amazon allows consumers to trade-in their electronics. A few months ago I reviewed my experience with Gazelle.com, and I figured it was time to test one of their competitors. Amazon offers the same service, you select the phone you want to trade in, Amazon shows you an offer, if you like the offer then you mail them your device.

For my Gazelle experiment, I tested their service with my girlfriend’s old iPhone 4. I didn’t have any extra used iPhones around to use for Amazon so I decided to trade in an iPad 2. I received the iPad a few years ago as a gift but I barely use it. I could see myself using it often if I flew frequently, however I rarely fly when traveling. I use my Macbook Pro at home and my iPhone on the go.

Amazon allows you to trade in all sorts of electronic devices. To begin, go to [Read more…]

How To Make A Living Selling Used Cell Phones

The cell phone industry is booming, everyone I know these days has a smartphone. Just a few years ago, only a few of my friends, family, and coworkers had an iPhone. Not only does every US consumer have the newest technology in their pocket, they can’t wait to upgrade to an even newer phone. I remember when I would use a flip “dumbphone” until it broke.

Just like any other guy, I work a nine to five job. However, I wanted a second source of income on the side. In the last few years I started to take advantage of the cell phone industry’s growth and began researching arbitrage opportunities from buying and selling used cell phones. A friend recommended that I read an ebook called Cell Phone Resale back in 2011. This book gave me the motivation and resources to get started with making some extra cash flipping phones on the secondary market.

Just last month, I sold a total of 21 phones for an average profit of $77 per phone. I did all of this in the time I had after my [Read more…]

Buying and Selling Used Cell Phones: Ebay Versus Craigslist

Two of the most popular used cell phone markets are eBay and Craigslist. Both are extremely useful websites because they have millions of users buying and selling phones everyday. However, while both marketplaces have their advantages, they also have their disadvantages. I have sold hundreds of items on both eBay and Craigslist, including a handful of cell phones, and I’m going to provide you with all of the ins and outs of both marketplaces. [Read more…]

Sell Your Used Cell Phones On Facebook And Twitter

You may not be comfortable selling your used cell phone on a marketplace such as eBay or Craigslist, so you might want to try listing your phone on a social network, such as Facebook or Twitter. Google Plus is also another viable option; however, it doesn’t have as many users yet so you may have more difficulty here. It doesn’t hurt to try selling on all three networks since it won’t cost you a dime. [Read more…]

Sell Your iPhone 5 And Buy The New iPhone 5S

Earlier today, Tim Cook introduced the new iPhone to those in attendance of Apple’s annual media event at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. For the first time, Apple premiered not one, but two different iPhone models. The first model, the iPhone 5c, is a less expensive version of the iPhone. In previous years, Apple reduced the price of the prior year’s iPhone as an economical solution. This year they are completely removing the iPhone 5 from their lineup, and instead are releasing an iPhone 5c as the cheaper alternative. The iPhone 5C is a uni-body polycarbonate (plastic version of the iPhone 5) smartphone, manufactured in a range of colors (blue, red, yellow, green, white), and sporting virtually identical internals as the iPhone 5. The 5c will be available in 16GB or 32GB, and will be priced at $100 and $200, respectively.

New iPhone 5s Features

Both the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s will be installed with Apple’s updated operations system, iOS 7. The new software will bring a variety of new features to the iPhone including several that up until now, were only available in Android phones. Apple followed their iPhone 5c documentation with a presentation of their new flagship smartphone, the iPhone 5s. Below is a list of some of our favorite [Read more…]

The Complete Guide to Selling Your Used Cell Phone

Upgrading Your Cell Phone

Most consumers in the US upgrade to a new cell phone once every year two years. Although most of us don’t need and won’t use the latest in mobile technology, a majority of subscribers will purchase the newest iPhone or Google phone as soon as they are eligible for an upgrade from their mobile service provider.

When your contract is up (usually 2 years), you are eligible for “upgrade pricing” on a new phone. Upgrade pricing is the price that is shown when you look at the mobile service provider’s web site and the price is in big letters. The price of the new phone will vary from “Free” to over $200, depending on what phone you choose to get. If you upgrade your phone, you will be required to sign a new contract to get that pricing (generally 2 years).

The reason for the contract is that the phone company is paying part (or all, in the case of a “Free” phone) of the price of the phone in exchange for “locking” you into your current plan for the next 2 years. Part of every bill you are paying goes to that cost of the phone. If you are using your phone “out of contract” the phone companies LOVE it, because [Read more…]
