Cex, what is a non-working phone in their terms?

Posted 21st Aug 2014
I see they pay £90 for a non-working iPhone 5C. What does this exactly mean.

Does the phone have to come with anything? does it have to turn on?

Condition of items
We will charge you more depending on the condition of our products. For electronic items, mobile phones and consoles, we break this down into four grades:

Mint - Working phone in as new/mint condition. Complete with original box and accessories as sold new.

Good [and Discounted] - Working phone in good condition with slight cosmetic blemishes. Charger supplied. If the phone includes a music player/radio then it is supplied with headphones. If the phone has PDA functionality a sync cable and/or docking cradle is supplied. Missing original packaging.

Poor [and Budget] - Working phone in poor cosmetic condition. Original or 3rd party charger supplied but missing accessories and original packaging.

Non-working - We buy non-working phones. Non-working phones must be intact, not crushed or snapped in half. Non-working examples: dead, cracked, broken/bleeding LCD (screen), not powering up, speaker/mic faults, broken aerial, etc. Accessories are not required. We do not sell non-working phones. Non-working phones are either repaired, stripped for parts to repair other phones or recycled into base materials to be used again. Nothing goes to landfill.
