“How soon after sending my trade in smartphone to you, do I get paid?”

Well, if you chose to receive your payment via bank transfer, you’ll get your money that very same day. You just have to wait until we’ve verified that your smartphone meets the network and condition criteria under which it was sold. If however you chose the Cheque option, it will be processed and sent in 1-2 days.

“What exactly IS an IMEI number?”

Every single mobile device in existence has its own unique serial number with which it can be identified. It’s typically 15 digits long and if you want to find yours, simply enter *#06# on your keypad and it will be displayed on your phone’s screen. Alternatively, if your phone model allows it, you can find it printed behind the battery or in the case of an iPhone, it could be on the SIM gate.

“How is the activation lock deactivated on my iPhone?”

On iPhones with an iOS7 or newer operating system, an activation lock is something that will render a device useless to anyone else. To deactivate it before you send it to us, access your general settings menu and select RESET. You’ll be asked to confirm by entering your Apple id password and once you do, all your personal settings will be erased.

“How do I know when you’ve received my smartphone?”

To Trade in or To Sell? – That Is The Question

Smartphones are getting more and more sophisticated every day and as a result, people in the United Kingdom are changing their old iPhones and Samsung Galaxy tech ever 2 to 4 years. Most often this occurs at the end of a monthly phone contract, when the iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 that came with it, becomes yours.

Whether getting a new iPhone X on a new contract or an upgrade, the question naturally arises – what to do with your old smartphone? Trade in or sell it privately? Here we take a look at why trading in your old iPhone is often the best way forwards.

No Guarantees

Selling your old smartphone on an online marketplace website like Ebay can be a tempting proposition, but there’s a lot of competition to get a good price and you could end up getting much less than market value – even if you’re talking about a relatively new Samsung or Apple Smartphone.

There’s also no guarantee that you’ll get a bid for your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy if you do set a reserve price, and if you set it low and someone meets it – you’ll be obliged to sell it at that low price. There’s no getting around the fact that Ebay is an auction site and selling your smartphone at an auction is risky!

Time Consuming

When you trade in a smartphone with a company like ours, it’s a pretty instant thing. You send it, we verify it and you get paid. It’s that simple. Listing on an auction site means having to fill everything out, take pictures and wait the allotted time for the auction to end. This is averagely about a week, which means waiting even longer to get your money.

Fees

You get a set amount when you trade in a Samsung Galaxy or Apple iPhone with us, with no nasty surprises further down the line thanks to our price promise. The amount you get when your old smartphone sells for on sites like Ebay is not the same amount you’ll have paid into your bank. They take a full 10%, which is a hefty sum when you’re talking about a selling price of hundreds of pounds.

Security

Selling privately means that you’ll be resetting your iPhone 8 or Samsung Galaxy S6 yourself and it’s fairly common knowledge that smartphones that have been through a factory reset can still be hacked with the right equipment and the will to do so. Trading in a smartphone is a secure way to ensure that it’s wiped properly with our specially designed flashing software, so it won’t come back to bite you in the future.

Trade In is King! So, when it comes down to it, trading in your old smartphone is the best, safest and quickest way to getting at the cash inside. It’s simple, it’s easy and we even pay the postage for you. What’s not to like? If you’d like find out more about trading your old iPhone or Samsung Galaxy with us, visit us online at www.tradein.co.uk or call us now on 020 3581 1991 between 9 and 5, Monday to Friday.
