CEX - need original packaging?

Posted 16th Sep 2013
Hi I am considering trading in an iphone4 8gb black.
Cex have a decent price on it.

My question is do I just trade in the phone or do I need to give in original packaging etc? (Worth more this way?

nope, for a grade 'B' they need the original/official battery, housing and charger. they may need the original packaging for a grade 'A' though.
Ok thanks. Phone would be grade A
I've traded Grade 'A' and they didn't want the original packaging.

Looking on their site...I found the following

Do you buy items that no longer have their original box?
Yes, we will buy unboxed phones and electronics. Please note we will not buy unboxed games or DVDs.

Do you pay more for items that have never been used/opened?
We offer more cash/trade depending on the condition of some items - mainly electronics. These grades are available to choose from on the website when you are selling your items online:-

Mint (A) – Phone in as new/mint condition with charger, original box and all accessories.
Good (B) - Working phone in good condition with slight cosmetic blemishes. Charger supplied. Missing one or two accessories or original box.
Poor (C) - Phone in poor cosmetic condition. Charger supplied but missing accessories and packaging.
Non-working (F) – Phone intact, not crushed or snapped in half. Fully working, but heavily cosmetically blemished. Non-working examples: dead, cracked, broken/bleeding LCD (screen), not powering up, speaker/mic faults, broken aerial, etc. No accessories required.
Please note that when selling your phone to CeX, we will determine the condition of your phone after we have fully tested the item, and will value it accordingly.

I have had a phone graded as 'B' because I had opened the little packet containing the earphones but not used them.
Thanks very much, hmm dam earphones have been used. Grade B aint that bad
