So, just today I sent in my old iPhone 3G to a place that buys used iPhones, iPods, laptops, etc. I got $95 for it, which isn’t bad, considering I got a lot of use out of it, and it’s just been sitting collecting dust.
New websites that will buy your used electronics are popping up on the web every day. The majority of companies are buying iPhones in order to fix them up a bit (if needed), refurbish them, perhaps unlock them, and then turn around and sell them.
You could certainly try and sell your phone on eBay, but you should first check completed auctions to see how much you’d probably get. And keep in mind, if you’re phone is broken, most people won’t want it on eBay. These other websites will buy your broken iPhone because certain parts inside are salvageable and would aid in refurbishing a close-to-perfect phone.
So, if you’ve been wondering what to do with that old iPhone, below are some places to check out. Keep in mind, I’ve only dealt with cashforiphones.com.
CashforiPhones.com – a simple, easy transaction, and offered more $ than most websites
BuyBackMac.com – I noticed that would have given me another $10 for my phone
There were a few others that I saw online but they only offered $60 to $80.
