You can earn more when you sell your mobile phone if you compare prices online

Selling old mobile phones can prove to be an excellent source of potential income for those of us who like to stay abreast with the latest in mobile technology. Rather than simply discarding your old handsets as soon as you replace them with a newer, slicker model you should take a look online and find out the going rates before selling your phone and making a few extra pounds that you wouldn't have had otherwise.

Despite the fact that selling your old and unused phones might seem like a fairly obvious idea, there are a surprising amount of people out there who simply never think of it. These people could potentially be sitting on hundreds of pounds in unused handsets without even realising it. However wanting to sell your phone and ensuring that you get the very best price for it are two very different things.

An increasing number of phone stores are introducing trade in services, where you can reduce the cost of a brand new phone by trading in your old one. While this might seem like a great idea in principle, the savings available don't really justify handing over a phone that could potentially earn you a couple of hundred pounds.

To make sure that you get the best money for your phone there are a number of things you should do. Firstly, you should ensure that it is SIM unlocked, if it's not you can get this done for a small fee at your local independent phone store. Next, before you commit to sell your mobile phone, compare prices online to see what the going rate for a similar handset in a similar condition is.

Too often people simply jump into these things and end up selling potentially valuable phones for a knock down price simply because they have replaced them with newer models. While this might be tempting, you should always make sure that you give yourself the best possible chance to earn as much as possible from the sale!
