How I traded in my iPhone for a new one
Smart phones do not last forever. As it is often the case, your favorite phone lets you down or you accidentally break it. You can’t even begin to imagine how I felt when I managed to crack the screen of my iPhone. The phone I was counting on for so long refused to start anymore and I was at a loss about what to do with it. Throwing the device away was certainly not an option as I spent a lot of money on it. Luckily, a friend advised me to try and sell the phone online. Apparently, this is the latest trend in phone recycling and it is more convenient than going to the market. So I desperately asked myself: where can i sell my iPhone?
To begin with, I made sure that I didn’t leave any data on the phone. As I soon learned, the price I would get for the phone depends on the model. In addition to this, private sales are more rewarding than shops and services. Initially, I wanted to sell the damn thing on eBay. My friend, being more experienced than me in these matters, suggested that I give up this idea, as it would take time. This meant that I had to do things the old-fashioned way and list the phone in the auction block. I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but I’m a college student. I really don’t have time to watch bids come in. The same is with Craigslist, even though I’ve heard that if you’re patient enough, your efforts will be compensated. Nevertheless, eBay and Craigslist do have the advantage of letting you control the selling price Anyway, I explored further options.
In my journey of finding the best place to sell my iPhone 5, I came across the internet on websites that advertised companies specialized in online phone exchange. To my surprise, there are plenty of online companies out there that buy old iPhones for a living. This means that they are willing to do the hard work for you. All you have to do is to fill in the blanks and they will come with an offer. At that moment, I decided this was the path to take in order to get rid of my iPhone. I didn’t waste any more time and I contacted such a company. After having evaluated the model of my smart phone, they made me an offer I could not refuse, especially because I was in need for cash. Next, I sent them the phone and the next week I received the payment via check.
In conclusion, I chose to share my experience for those who have never dealt with these kinds of situations before. It’s really a shame to dump your phone to the garbage. Companies such as SellSmartForCash have helped me advantageously sell my mobile. Not to mention that the money I got in exchange helped me a great deal.
P.S. I am now the proud owner of an iPhone 6!
