Every year Apple releases a new version of the iPhone, and every year Samsung also releases a new galaxy phone, same with other companies like Sony, HTC who also releases a new version of their flagship phone every year. Some of us stay with and keep our old phones while some go out and upgrade to the newest model each year.

For those who upgrade, it’s a question of what to do with their old phones. Some just keep their old phone in a closet or drawer somewhere, some opt to give it away to a friend or loved one, some trade-in their old phones in order to get a discount for a newer one, while others, they just simply sell their old phones as sometimes you get higher value for it rather than trading it in.


Selling your old phone can sometimes be a pain, although there are times when a buyer shows up instantly the moment you announce that you are selling your current phone especially if it well taken care of and still looks like new. But sometimes, finding a buyer can be hard. And this is where sites like Sell My Phone comes in.
