Sell Used iPhone Devices to Get that New Upgrade

It is no secret that your old iPhone is seriously outdated! With all the new iPhone upgrades, you are desperately in need of a new phone. Your friend down the street has this new touch screen that is virtually unbreakable, and has double the memory with way more apps than you do, right? The thing is, your mom and dad are both going to tell you that your phone is just fine. If it is still working then there is no reason to get a new one. They are old school and think it should stay that way with the motto “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.”

Sell Used iPhoneHow would you like to get your parents to let you get that new upgraded phone? Well, there is a very simple process that may just make all your dreams come true. Think about how much you or your parents paid for your old iPhone. Are you thinking? Probably a pretty penny. Well, you can get that pretty penny right back. Yes, your phone might be outdated. Yes, it might look old. Yes, it may even have some cracks. All those things don’t matter. Seriously, you can still sell used iPhone devices.

You may be thinking yeah right for like five bucks. That just is not true. There are many people that do their homework and actually get a nice junk of change back for outdated, old, and even worn iPhones. The trick to getting back the big bucks is to do your research. If you want to sell used iPhone devices, you have to make sure you dot your eyes and cross your T’s so to speak. Some people have managed to get two hundred dollars when they decided to sell your iPhone 4s devices. That is not a guarantee, but that is sure something to look forward to when you are doing your research.

Sell Used iPhone Devices

You may wonder why a company would purchase old junk. Well, for people who have the philosophy that your parents have, who just absolutely refuse to buy the upgraded high tech stuff and want them simple and cheap these companies offer simple and affordable solutions. When you decide to sell iPhone 4s devices to these companies, they refurbish your phone and resell it.

There are other local places that you can go to. Places where you can deal with people face to face instead of over the internet. They include:

  • Convenience Stores
  • Pawn Shops
  • Electronics Stores

Though these places are probably in any decent sized city, they may not pay quite as much as the online companies because online companies take out the middle man.

Another way you can get some money for that old phone is to sell broken iPhone devices in local ads. You can post an ad in the following ways:

  • Post an Ad on the Internet
  • Post an Ad in the Newspaper
  • Post an Ad on any Social Media Site

Posting an Ad lets people know you are selling something. It is also a great way for you to put the price you want to sell it for. Maybe your upgraded iPhone 4S version costs three hundred. You could sell iPhone 3g devices for one fifty and actually only have to pay half the price for your upgraded version.

Let them know how you intend to help them pay for it by cutting the price in half. This is a great negotiating tool and really awesome way to persuade parents that the new upgrade is actually worth it. Even if they are all about if it’s not broke don’t fix it, they will definitely like the fact of you saving them some money. In the long run you will have won them over.
