Turn in Your Old Mobile Devices for Extra Holiday Cash

The holiday season is upon us and everyone could use a little more cash in their wallets. From holiday parties and family dinners to a long list of gifts to buy, you could use a cash infusion to help get through the holidays. What if you could get a little extra money just for cleaning out your closets and junk drawers of items you no longer use or need? If you have old cell phones, iPods or tablets, you might have a small savings account in old mobile devices lying around your home.

That’s right, your old cell phones and other mobile devices can be worth money. You probably knew that you could sell the more recent models of iPhones. iPads or Samsung Galaxies, but it is not just these slightly used phones or tablets that are valuable. Even older models of cell phones may still be worth money, even if they no longer work or are in poor condition. The reason for their value is not in what they can do; it is in what they contain.

Most mobile devices like cell phones, tablets and iPods contain valuable materials that can be recycled. Gold, silver and other precious metals are used in their electronic components. If thrown in the trash, these devices are adding to our landfills and the valuable materials inside them are lost. That is why you should always recycle your old devices, so why not get money for them instead?

If you need some extra cash or just want to do the right thing by recycling your old mobile devices, contact your local cell phone repair store in a local mall or shopping center. Many of these stores will buy your old devices and give you cash on the spot. It is a great way to get some extra money for the holidays while doing what is right for the environment.

Should You Repair or Sell Your Broken Mobile Device?

You spend hundreds of dollars to have the latest mobile phone or device, making a substantial investment. So what should you do if your mobile device is broken? Unlike a decade ago, you do have options beyond just upgrading to a new device when availability eventually opens on your account. In many circumstances, you may be able to have your device repaired at a fraction of the cost of buying new. Another option is selling your device for cash, giving you money to spend on your new phone or tablet. Which is the best option for your broken device? 

Repairing Your Device

For many, repairing their existing device is the most affordable option. However, it depends on what needs to be repaired and the age of the device. For newer phones and tablets, it’s usually worth investigating repairs versus replacement. Some types of repairs that can be done on devices such as iPhones, Samsung Galaxy and iPad devices are:

–          Black screen replacement

–          White screen replacement

–          Water damage

–          Battery replacement

Since most newer devices will cost hundreds of dollars to replace, a repair can be a viable option. For older models or severely damaged devices, it may be best to consider selling and replacing with a new device, though. 

Getting the Best Price for Your Broken Device

Even a non-functioning mobile device can be worth money. To get the best price for your old device, consider selling to a mobile device repair company. Since they are in the business of repairing these devices, they often will offer the best price for your broken phone or tablet, saving you money on the purchase of a new device.

Does Your Smartphone Need Some TLC?

Smartphones have become one of the most used devices of our time, keeping people connected wherever they go. Unfortunately, they are also expensive, costing hundreds of dollars to replace when they are damaged. Luckily, due to the large demand for these devices, there are now ways to preserve many of these phones with affordable cell phone repairs which can make them last much longer before they need to be replaced. 

Types Of Smartphone Repairs

Like all types of electronics, there are times when it is better just to replace the smartphone than to spend hundreds of dollars on repairing them. However, there are many smaller issues that can be quickly and easily fixed, making the phone just like new again. Before trading in or tossing out your phone, consider these repairs that can be made. 

–        Front glass. On many iPhones, the front glass can become scratched or cracked, making it hard to use. This glass can be repaired or replaced by experienced technicians, making the phone look like new again.

–        Water damage. Water is the enemy of most cell phones. Countless phones have been accidentally exposed to water, then thrown away. Often these phones can be repaired, costing much less than replacement.

–        LCD damage. If the LCD component is malfunctioning on a phone like an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy, it can often be repaired quickly without creating the need for expensive replacement of the device.

–        Battery replacement. Many times when a phone dies, it is just in need of a battery replacement. Before spending the money to replace it, have an expert check to see if it just needs a new battery. 

Next time your smartphone has outer damage or is not working properly, call a local smartphone repair company to see if it can be repaired. If not, some offer to buy used phones, working or not, and can also give you a good deal on replacement phones if yours cannot be repaired.
