You will need to take ID for a guess?

Take the right forms of ID and your phone to the counter, they will tell you then and there how long it will take to check. Come back when they say and they will give you the money depending on the grade they give your phone.

Yeah they will sign you up and give you your CEX card (providing you have the right ID)
Then they will take your phone and tell you how long its going to take to test (about an hour max if their busy in my experience). Come back after the hour (or whatever time) and they will give you the cash, or your phone if your not happy with the valuation.

a lot of stores say they have no cash and will try to give you exchange vouchers.

Also mate be aware that if you are expecting anything decent for your phone then be prepared to be disappointed, their grading system leaves alot to be desired, I think that part of the CEX staff uniform is a mask! just dont want you to waste a 60mile round trip, have you considered other options Linky :thumbsup:

agreed - i took a phone in and they said it had dust under the screen, so they wouldn't buy it. So after I wiped it on my t-shirt and the dust from 'under the screen' magically disappeared they said the tester had gone home (even though he was testing another phone) and I would have to come back the next day. Needless to say, I didn't!

you can check how much you will get by checking their website, and the different grades etc

OP your braver than me, I cannot stand more than a few seconds in a CEX shop, for some reason every CEX shop I have been to always stinks really badly of BO.

can you sell playstaion 3 games and old mobile phones to cex

Even though they consistently knock a few quid off the trade in prices for supposed 'scratches' they still give better cash prices than most places.

The one issue I have with my local CEX is that they will have five or six staff behind the counter but maybe only one serving so you wait for twenty minutes to get to the front only to be told they have no cash.

Really? I've never in all my years as a member had them give me a reduced price due to scratches! The issue of arriving only to be told they're not doing cash that day is massively irritating though.

A couple of times I've had the bloke at the counter knock a couple of quid off the trade in price of games based on 'scratches' even though I keep all my stuff immaculate. I even traded an Ipod that had been sitting in it's box for a year and apart from once being taken out of the box had never been used and even that didn't warrant an 'A' grade, if it hadn't of been my brothers and he really wanted the cash I would have walked.

Took in broken Iphone 4s. They offered me the price for a broken Iphone 4 (£50 instead of the £100 declared on the website). Still months later, the website still offers the same price of £100 even though a member of staff told me there was no profit for them (charging problem).

Why the hell does "took" look like it is spelled wrong?

Because you started the sentence with it, so it is capitalised which looks odd.

The correct use would have been "I took ..".

Oh, yeah. Looks better with an "I" at the beginning. Thank you :)
