Sell your old iPhone for the most money

Phones
[MUSIC] So, you want to get the new iPhone? Well, that means it's time to sell your old model and make some money. There are a ton of ways to sell or trade in an old iPhone, but if you wanna earn the most money, here are some tips. The first thing to keep in mind, if you want top dollar, is that you have to sell it right Now. As soon as a new iPhone is announced the older models quickly drop in value, and you're going to earn the most by selling it yourself on a marketplace like Craigslist or eBay. There is more risk and hassle in doing it yourself, especially Craigslist where you have to meet people somewhere, because that can be awkward. eBay is safer with purchase protection. And eBay also charges a 10% sales fee. But still, if you put in the work, eBay's gonna bring you much more money than the other trade-in methods. If you want the easiest method that gets you paid right away, trade it in with a retailer. Do it the same time you buy your new iPhone. The only catch is that you get store credit. That means gift cards. The good thing is, you can compare price offerings online before you go. Sometimes Best Buy or Apple can offer more than AT&T or Amazon for the same phone. Now if you'd rather skip the gift card and get a check in the mail. And yes, I do mean a check sent to you in the mail. Go with a trade-in website. There are a number of sites Sites you should compare. There's Gazelle, BuyBackWorld, Nextworth, uSell, and decluttr, just to name a few. Which one pays better? Well, that always varies. When you find a price you like, go ahead and lock it in. These sites will give you a shipping label, and you have about a month to box it up and drop it in the mail. Then you'll get paid, if your not sure if you want to sell the phone just yet. Still right now go and get a quote locked in no matter what you have time to think it over, and if you change your mind, its no big deal you don't have to send the phone. Of course before you ship off your phone there are a few things you have to do. Back it up, save all those photos, contacts and what not, if you have an apple watch un-pair it! Turn off the Find My iPhone feature, sign out of iCloud, and wipe the phone. Give it a factory reset by erasing all content and settings. And do make sure you paid off the phone and canceled service before you sell it. Even if your screen is cracked or maybe the phone is a little banged up, remember you can still make some money with a trader. [MUSIC]
