How To Sell Your Cell Phone For Cash:


Step 1: Get An Offer

The first step to selling your phone is to let us know what phone you have! Select the device you want to sell, and fill out the form to answer a few questions about it. We use factors such as the Model, Carrier, Storage Capacity (GB), and any damages to get you an accurate $ Quote for your phone. After we receive your information, we will reach out with a cash offer for your phone that is valid for 24 hours.

Step 2: Meet Up

Before you meet with us, please reset your phone and remove any personal information or password locks. We Do NOT Buy Locked Phones, so please remove any locks before we meet. While we will reset your phone at the meeting, 815 Buyback is not responsible for any data left on your device. You are responsible for ensuring your device is reset and ready to be inspected before we meet. This can take up to 10 minutes, and we ask you to do this before we meet.

Step 3: Get Paid

At the meeting, 815 Buyback will need to check your device to ensure that the information you provided is accurate. We check for any internal or external damages, run the phone’s IMEI or Serial Number, and check basic functionality. This typically takes about two to five minutes per device – if the device is reset and ready to be inspected.

How Much Is My Phone Worth?

If you’re wondering, “How much is my phone worth?” we are here to explain. It isn’t the most straightforward question to answer, as the value of your phone depends on several factors, including its age, brand, model, condition, and the current market demand. Here’s a breakdown of these factors to help you estimate the value of your phone:

Age and Model: Newer phones generally fetch higher prices. However, electronic devices consistently depreciate in value as soon as they are released. The prices of used phones typically drop heavily in value as newer models are released. iPhones tend to hold their value better than Samsung, LG, and Motorola.

Condition: The physical condition and any damage to your phone is also a significant factor. Phones in excellent condition with no visible scratches or internal damage are much more valuable. We will have to apply deductions for screen cracks, back glass cracks, LCD damage, issues with charging..etc. Even minor wear and tear can lower the price of your device.

Carrier Status: Factory-unlocked phones that are fully paid off and unlocked to all carriers are worth much more than locked devices. Financed phones are not paid off, are still locked to a carrier, and are worth considerably less. However, we still buy carrier-locked and financed Phones but do not expect a high offer.

Market Demand: The value of your phone can fluctuate based on market demand. We make our offers based on what the wholesale price of that phone currently is, and these prices fluctuate daily. Our offer is only valid for 48 hours, as prices constantly change.

Accessories: If you have the original box, accessories, and charger that came with your phone, we can offer you slightly more than if it is just the phone.

Data and Factory Reset: Back up your data and factory reset your phone before coming to the meetup. This not only protects your personal information, but it is 100% necessary in order to sell your phone to 815 Buyback. We do not buy passcode-locked or iCloud-locked phones.
