How To Sell Apple iPhone,iPad or iPod

What happens when you sell your phone to Trade in?

So you’re looking to sell your mobile for cash? Once you’ve chosen which phone to sell, we’ll start a recycling process that means none of your phone goes to waste. Here’s what happens:

Step one

After you’ve registered your details, we’ll send you one of our absolutely FREE Trade in Pack, making it really easy to sell a phone to us. Our team of experts will run it through our testing process and give you a price offer depending on the condition. Remember, you can sell new phones or damaged phones to Trade in, but it might affect the mobile trade in value if it’s heavily damaged.

Step two

After you sell your phone to us, we’ll prepare it for onward sale as part of the recycle process. We give devices another life and where we can we’ll give a device some TLC and repair or refurbish it if possible.

Step three

As part of our recycling programme, selling your mobile to Trade in means it’s either fully recycled or completely reused by a new owner. Often, your phone will go on to start a new life in developing countries. How good is that? It’s all about recovery, reuse and recycle here at Trade in – so sell used mobile phones to us today and do your bit for the Environment!

Apple AirPods finally go on sale after delays

Were you worried that Apple’s delay in shipping AirPods would deprive you of a holiday gift? You can (probably) relax. Apple has quietly started selling its first self-branded Bluetooth earphones through at least its online store. If you order now, the $159 earpiece set should reach your door by December 22nd. You can always spring for Beats headphones if you need to get something Apple-made right now, of course, but Cupertino is counting on the AirPods’ smarts winning you over — they’re easy to set up, make Siri just a double-tap away and can detect when they’re in your ears. We didn’t think the audio quality was spectacular, but these are as much about convenience and phone calls as anything else.

Update: We hope you pulled the trigger quickly. New online orders are already slipping to December 29th, so that won’t be a gift option. On the upside: Apple notes that its own retail stores, resellers and “select carriers” will have stock next week.

How we do Mobile Phone Recycling?

Have you ever heard of mobile phone recycling? Do not worry if you have not, until not too long ago, neither did we. Mobile phone recycling is not a new concept, but it is something that very few people are aware of and even fewer people are practicing it.

A mobile phone should not just be discarded with the normal trash. It contains certain electrical parts that can be harmful to the environment when not disposed of in the correct way. What very few people know is that recycling is not necessarily just the correct way of disposing of a mobile phone. Recycling can also mean that it is used again, or even that parts of it is used again,

At Trade in we aim to sell as many of the old phones that we buy to communities where they can not afford to buy a new phone, or are not in a position where they can afford to take out a contract for a phone.

The phones that we cannot use will be discarded in the correct mobile phone recycling way.

By practicing correct mobile phone recycling and enabling people to use your phone again, you will be doing a great deed for the environment. And probably more importantly, you will be able to get some cash in your wallet. And would not want to get money for something that would have just been tucked away in a drawer or thrown out with the regular garbage?
