    Check the CEX website for the buy-in price, this usually gives you a good indication of worth. Run this against a few eBay examples and you should get a figure.

    :oops:

    Is it unlocked? If so CEX give £117 for a good condition unlocked HTC Hero..

    Where average ebay prices seem to be much higher, unlocked ones in good condition go for around £170-180 on ebay from recent completed listings. After fees you'd probabley clear between £155-165.

    Seems CEX price isn't that reflective of value when compared to the going rate.

    Judging by that, i reckon you could expect £150 for one here or on avforums.

    Yeah so as I said check both. CEX the low price in this case, eBay the higher then work out where the phone fits in this situation. You're just backing up what I put :?

    I would just personally never use CEX mate, their pricing fluxuates far to much in respect of the true second hand value. It becomes a bit of a pointless benchmark to try and price your goods

    It's much more sensible to just check 10 or so completed ebay listings, gives a much better reflection of a realistic price. Then just deduct the fees if you wish to sell somewhere like here

    Generally prices on CEX are reflective with a bit of thought added in. Usually they buy in at a lower rate than you could get for eBay but if you take into account fees then it brings them a little closer. Add in potential hassle from scammers or relisting etc then selling to CEX becomes a very viable alternative so their prices become very relevant. If you want a quick no hassle sale then generally you can walk in their stores with a piece of ID and the phone and providing there are no problems with the phone (and they have cash, some have had this problem but I never have) then you've got instant cash in hand. There's trade-in option too which could work out nicely.

    eBay prices also can fluctuate too, I've seen large differences in prices since looking in this and other threads, unless you're going buy it now then you're at the mercy of the auction.

    By pointing people in the direction of CEX and then eBay I think I'm doing them a greater service than just giving them a figure I worked out myself. I'm encouraging them to research themselves and to know what options are available to them.

    I'm just trying to help and you're just trying to help. Can't we get along

    Oh by all means, CEX is a good option if you want quick and a trip down to a store.. If they of course don't turn you away due to having stock or low on money in the store, which again is something he should consider.

    But in respect of him asking how much he could get for his items, i reckon ebay is much accurate way to get that picture.

    I haven't got a bug in my bonnet about what you're saying bud, more that i can't stand CEX... Especially after the wasted trips i've taken to them to sell stuff, and the other people on here who just get turned away when under the impression they could shift their stuff. Made all the more frustrating that they don't make public their stores telephone numbers, so you can't even check before you set off.

    cheers guys for the info

    good to know as im starting to get excited bout the 4g announcement next month

    HTC Hero in good condition will fetch you around £165 on here. If the iTouch is in perfect condition you should hit £195, so you'll end up with £360 over all
