The trade-in value of your Samsung phone is influenced by its carrier, storage capacity, condition, and lock status. Typically, Samsung phones in mint condition receive higher prices than damaged ones. Similarly, unlocked phones are usually more valuable than those blacklisted or carrier-locked.
Locate the SIM Tray: Find the SIM card tray on your phone, usually on the sides. Use a SIM Ejector Tool: Use the ejector tool (or an alternative like a paperclip or thin earring) to gently press into the small hole on the tray. Remove the Tray and SIM Card: Pull out the tray and remove the SIM card. Replace the Tray: After removing the SIM card, reinsert the empty tray into the phone.
Best Payouts: You get higher payouts than carriers or retail store trade-ins. Comparison of Quotes: BankMyCell compares quotes from various buyback stores, ensuring you get the best offer. Convenience: The process involves registering your sale and dropping off your phone at a postal service. Cash Payment: Unlike in-store credit offered by some options, BankMyCell offers cash payments. Time-Saving: The site frequently updates data from multiple sources, saving you time to find the best deal and compare your options.
When you trade in a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip at BankMyCell, the value depends on the phone’s storage space, its condition (Mint, Good, Cracked, Faulty), if it's locked to a carrier, and how you’ll get paid (cash, check, credit). Phones with more storage and in better condition usually get more money. Unlocked phones often sell for more than those tied to a carrier.
