What Do You Think, Sell Old Mobile Phones or Keep Them?

by Jenn

old phonesFirst of all, yes those are all my old mobile phones and tablets!  I guess I am somewhat of a tech geek, lol.  I just cannot bring myself to get rid of them.  You never know I might just need them one day, probably not but maybe.  I don’t think I will ever get rid of mine to be honest with you, but my sister on the other hand.  Well, let me explain.

Most of you already know that I have been doing a review on the Windows HTC 8X Review on Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog. Yes, it’s my other blog. I’m sure most of you know that already, lol. Anyway, I am not here to go on about the Windows HTC 8X, even thought I totally love it. I’m here to tell you about an awesome way to make money on your old mobile phones.

Anyway, my sister has been bothering me to give her my old phone.  Needless to say, I am the big sister, and don’t need my phone.  Yes, she should be getting the phone any day now. 

My little sister has been in the UK for about two years now, and it always seems like she needs my help.  She has been needing a new phone and since she has one on the way she wants to sell her old one for a little extra cash.  I did some research and came up with this awesome site called SellMy Mobile.com.  They actually compare places that will purchase your phone and guarantee your the most money for you mobile phone

I know right, it’s that awesome. I have heard about it in the past, but never thought much about it. My Android Phone is still pretty new, and I hated the thought of tossing it into a drawer and never looking at it again. I decided to head over and check out ways to sell my mobile phone.

So how does it work?  It’s actually easy.

First you’ll search for your phone.  This is easy, use the search box at the top of their home page and search for your device.

Then you’ll select the best deal.  The will compare prices from all the top trade in companies to help you get the best deal possible.  Choose the best deal for your mobile phone or table.

Send off your phone, follow the directions on the page and get your phone in the mail.

You’re done, you now have your cash in only a few days.  Sounds pretty awesome, right!  I thought it did, and wanted to share.

I have not yet tried this service, but once I get my new phone I just think I might.  Has anyone else tried this serve?  I would love to hear feedback, if anyone has any.  I think it seems like a great servile, and know many of my readers are based in the UK so I thought I would share this with you, and see if you have used SellMy Mobile.

If you’re interested in a mobile phone trade in, you might want to check it out.  You never know, it might be worth making a little money off a phone that will just sit in a drawer and collect dust.

I’m not sure about the US, but here in Canada, you can use a mobile phone that no longer has service, for emergency calls, so places like women’s shelters are always happy to have them! They give them out to their clients because they can still use them to call 911.

What a great idea. Around here, all you can find is a recycle box (actually,an old, repainted mailbox) for used cell phones at the Recycling Center. I suppose there is something here in the US, but I haven’t really looked into it.

I usually hang on to mine as a back up but by now I have a few. Sounds like a good idea to donate to a shelter or even an elderly person especially one who lives alone for an emergency.

Those are great ideas, post and comments. I always give mine away to people I know who need phones. But I like the idea of really helping people.

I have never done it, but I wrote down the website and would like to see what I would get for my old phone. If it isn’t much, I would rather donate it to a women’s shelter.

I just went to that site & they offered me a pretty good price for my daughters phone. I was just testing it to see what they’d offer. Thanks for this post otherwise I never would’ve known about it.

I was about to donate my old ones to the zoo, but now that I heard about the idea for women’s shelters, I am going to try that first – better to reuse before recycle!

You can consider selling your old phone at Instacash. It is also a nice site that provides you instant payment with fast pickup.
