Want to know how to sell old mobile phones for the best price?

How many of us can honestly say that we've had the same mobile phone for more than a year or two in this day and age? Not many we'll wager. Due to the disposable nature of mobile phone technology, many people are more than happy to buy the latest phone every year, while discarding their old model without even giving it so much as a second thought. When you think about it, this is a crazy thing to do given the amount of money that these phones can cost.

Even if you got your phone for free on the basis of your contract terms, you could still make some money out of it when the time comes to replace it. So rather than have your old phones collecting dust, we recommend that you follow this guide to help you sell your old mobile phones for the best price possible.

When it comes to selling phones, we recommend using the private second hand market. By that, we mean using your local classifieds newspapers, as well as sites like Gumtree and Craigstlist. In doing this, you can be sure that you don't have to pay advert insertion fees, nor will you need to worry about potentially expensive postage and packaging when it comes to selling your item like you do with online auction sites including eBay.

To get the very best price for your phone, you'll need to ensure that it is unlocked for use on any network (you can get this done online or in your local phone store for a low fee if you need to), is in top condition and comes complete with all the original packaging, accessories and literature.

If your phone ticks all the boxes, you can expect to make more than enough to subsidise your next purchase, lessening the financial burden of keeping up with the latest technology!
