How to Sell Your Cell Phone for Cash Today, Risk-Free!

Where Can I Sell My Cell Phone for a Good Price?

When you sell phones for cash today, the resale prices you get depend on the following factors:

  • Condition: If you used a case and your smartphone looks new, the phone is worth the most cash, but you can still sell broken phones for a decent value.
  • Capacity: Companies pay more for models with larger storage capacity, typically in gigabytes (GB) or terabytes (TB).
  • Network Carrier: Companies will pay more for unlocked cell phones and major networks like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint.
  • Release date: The cell phone's offer will drop as it ages. It would be ideal to sell it sooner to get the best deal.

Where Can I Sell My Phone Online?

If you're wondering, "Who buys phones online?" here is the list of stores to get cash or gift cards.

Buyback Stores (Best Deal): BankMyCell is the one-stop marketplace for getting the best price for your old iPhone or Android phone. You can compare deals from all the leading companies and choose the right site. Then, you can select your preferred payment method, and accurate conditions of your old phone, ship it, and get paid instantly.

Carrier Store Trade-ins: You can visit your network carriers' site to sell your old phone, but you're leaving cash on the table. Payment options are limited too - you only get gift cards applied to your account as payment, and they drip this network account credit over 12-24 months.

Sell old phones on Marketplaces: You can list your old cell phones on eBay. In this process, you'll have to spend 30 minutes taking photos and making an eBay listing - plus, they charge 10% marketplace fees to sellers. Swappa is another option; from experience, they have lower marketplace fees but require extra time to list your old cell phone than eBay.

If you're wondering, "Who buys cell phones near me?" here is the list of stores to visit.

Retailer location = Low-ball deal: If you're looking to sell your phone near you for cash, be warned that you'll only get store credit in return for your trade-in. This gift card limits you to buy from the store you sell it to (Target, Best Buy, Walmart) and can be almost half the deal you'll get here. An EcoATM Kiosk is another mobile phone trade-in option, these Kiosks also pay a low price, but they are another easy way to sell for cash payouts.

Go ship instead of shop: If you're wondering, "Where to sell cell phone near me?" you can go to BankMyCell's comparison market instead of visiting a retail store to sell to get more payment options like PayPal, Direct Deposit, or Check. That way, you get paid extra, and of course, you can use the cash on what you want!

Double your device trade-in price: The best and costless way to sell your mobile device is BankMyCell. You'll get the highest pricing evaluation from comparing multiple places as a seller. The only downside is that you'll have to wait a day or two for the buyers to pay due to shipping timescales.

BankMyCell's trade-in comparison service gets you the best phone trade-in value - paid in cash! No low-ball store credit traps here, my friends!

That's right, once you fill in the form to accept the quote, your price gets frozen for up to 30 days. With prices dropping daily, lock in today's offers, and sell later.

Place a sale order to lock today's price. If you choose to sell used phones here, you will get FREE shipping and even FREE returns on devices if you change your mind before you're paid!

How to Sell Your Phone For a Good Price

Yes! All the cell phone buyback programs listed on BankMyCell will take pre-owned phones on any US carrier. But if they are unlocked, you'll get the most cash! You can also get good prices for your used phone from carriers like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

If your carrier logo isn't listed on your devices page, select 'other' from the carrier price filter to see all the highest paying cell phone buyback programs - they'll take all the other networks like Xfitiy, Cricket, US Cellular, and more.

You sure can sell used phone that is broken! The cell phone buyers listed take smartphones in practically any condition as they repair and refurbish them in-house! Find your device using the search box or brand list at the top of the page, and get started!

Can I sell cell phones with cracked screens? You'll still get excellent payouts if your smartphone has a damaged screen or backglass, excessive chips, or dents. Expect to get around 80% of the broken cell phone resale value, and with repairs costing up to $329, the smartest thing to do is sell it to get more cash for your phone.

Select 'Cracked' as the condition to see your sale price.

Can I sell broken phones? Yes! If you want to sell your broken phone that doesn't power on or has faulty ports, buttons, touchscreens, speakers, or other hardware issues - even software bugs. Unfortunately, if your phone is bent, crushed, or snapped, it's e-waste.

Select 'Faulty' on your device page to see available deals.

Can I sell cell phones with water damage? You'll still get paid no matter how bad the liquid damage is; the cell phone buyers want them too!

Select 'Faulty' as the condition to see buyers' deals.

Sure! The cell phone buyers we compare will buy locked old phones. But you'll get paid more if you can remove the lock from your phone.

If that's not an option, sell locked phones by selecting 'Activation Locked'.

What's accepted:

  • iCloud-locked iPhones (almost all devices)
  • Activation locked phones (most newer devices)
  • Passcode-locked phones (more recent devices)

Yep! You can still get cash for your old phone if it's blacklisted with a bad ESN (electronic serial number). But, the cell phone trade-in programs listed on this site will not buy phones flagged as lost or stolen, so if you found the phone, you should try and contact the original owner.

Sure, you can sell financed phones when you still have money owed. This is because you own the phone; you owe money on a credit agreement to your carrier (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc.) or the store you bought it from.

Tips: Most people like you use this site to sell an old phone with outstanding payments, then use the profit to help clear the debt - freeing you up to buy a new plan!
