So, you got a 3 year old mobile phone lying around the house that you haven't used in ages. You're thinking you can sell it off eBay so you did, problem is that most consumers today are buying second hand mobile phones that are less than a year old considering how much technology changes nowadays. So you failed at selling it on eBay and on top of that, you incurred listing fees. So what can you do with your old mobile phone?
Rather than throw it away, you can still sell it, though not on eBay. You can trade in your mobile phones on sites like Mobile Phone Xchange. The process is very simple, you just type in the model number of your mobile phone and then the website will give you an instant quote. They can pay in you gift certificates like Debenhams, Argos, and Marks and Spencers (gift vouchers yield higher values), or you can choose to be paid by cash through Bank Transfer, Cheque or Paypal.
Take note though that your mobile phone needs to be in full working condition which means there should be no dead pixels, all buttons are working and if it's a touchscreen phone, the stylus should also be included, in order for you to get the full quoted price. If you have a broken mobile phone, you can still send it in for cash though at a reduced value. Damaged phones can still get anything up to 80% of Mobile Phone Xchange's quoted price for used phones so I guess this would depend on how damaged your phone is.
As for the value of your old mobile phones, if you still have a fairly new phone, maybe less than a year old, the price that Mobile Phone Xchange quotes is quite a bit low compared if you sell it on eBay but on the positive side, you have sure cash rather than risk listing on eBay, incurring listing fees and have no one buy the phone after the listing period.
Overall, I think the service that Mobile Phone Xchange is offering is a good alternative rather than just throwing away your mobile phone or selling it off Craigslist or eBay. You get instant cash plus you're helping save the environment too.
