    Using mobile recycle companies

    I won a phone through an incentive at work and I have no use for it. However the money would be very handy so without using eBay are recycle services the best way to sell a new phone and which ones are safe too?

    My experience is that you will get far more money selling in a more 'conventional' way that using a recycling site, and sites can have a habit of telling you that a phone has failed certain tests' or that certain components don't work as they should so they can then offer even less money.

    I've used music magpie before and got top dollar for my phone with about one weeks turn around. What phone is it by the way.. ?

    It's an iPhone SE 16GB. Fully sealed and everything, I'm just struggling to find the best way to sell it. My mum sold her iPhone on ebay last year and the amount of fake buyers she had really put me off the whole idea.

    You could try selling on here on on other sites like shpock? Sure someone woukd snap it up & you'd get more than a recycling site.

    sell it on here or other apps like gumtree or shpock

    what would you say they;re worth? I've been offered £260 from one company with decent reviews on trustpilot.

    You should be able to get around £300 still sealed, can't you take it back to the store you bought it from?

    Was an incentive at work for our figures during December so sadly not. And I know if I ask for something else they'll give me vouchers for sainsburys

    You should get more selling it on here than £260... They are going for £329 at Carphone Warehouse sim free as I have been looking at one today!
