We are a family of cell phone users, all four of us have one and we, of course, use them daily. My husband’s phone gets the most use since he takes his business calls on his mobile phone. My son and daughter are super expert texters — they use their phones the most for keeping in touch with their friends via text.
Last month, just before Christmas, my hubby was lucky enough to be able to upgrade his iPhone 3GS to the iPhone 4. The rest of us have to wait until August before we can upgrade. I hate to tell everyone else but I’m secretly saving up my money to bump my upgrade to either a Samsung Galaxy S III or the latest iPhone, I haven’t decided which just yet.
All this upgrading leaves me to wonder though, what will we do with our old phones? I suppose we could just throw them in the junk drawer but we may be able to get a few bucks out of them by doing a mobile phone trade in via the internet. Some sites, such as sellmymobile.com offer a comparison service that shows you the range of prices you can receive for your old mobile phones and tablets. The comparison prices come from all of the top mobile phone trade-in companies so you don’t have to waste time searching the internet for the best price.
Selling our old phones in this way would allow us to gain a bit of cash. It sure wouldn’t hurt to put a few extra dollars in our pockets instead of leaving those old phones laying around the house collecting dust!
