    +1 for CEX sold many electronics through them and got a decent price out of it. If you're willing to do a little bit of work you can try ebay, you may get a little bit more cash out of it if you're lucky.

    Re: Where to sell an old phone...

    If I send a phone to MusicMagpie do they pay the price they say or will the examine it and then offer a lower price?

    I normally wouldn't ask but as it's a postal one it isn't as simple as handing it back to you if you don't like the price. Who pays to send it back to you if you refuse the lower price?

    Re: Where to sell an old phone...

    They will likely offer a lower price if what I read on the interweb is correct.

    Earlier this year I felt like a new phone and took a gamble on a Realmi 6 Pro on ebay. Great phone, only problem is it bricked itself and died with an update after having it for 2 months (same year it was released). I am very disappointed my new phone is basically the same and I had to pay for both

    Be Careful on the Internet! I ran and tackled a drive by mining attack today. It's not designed to do anything than provide fake texts (say!)

    eBay if you're feeling brave. The chance of fraudulent buyers is high though.

    Re: Where to sell an old phone...

    I always use CeX if possible, they give decent prices on some phones, and it's an easy sale. Alternatively you could try sites like Facebook marketplace or gumtree.

    There's also eBay but I worry about being scammed by buyers - eBay will almost always side with the buyer in any dispute, and while most buyers are fine, it can be risky.

    Wait for £1 ebay fee promo (this weekend) and put it on an auction, of course be cautious and take lots of pictures/proof of postage when you send it

    I always go with ebay if I don't know someone local /friends /family who want a phone.

    Just put everything in the details that you can possibly think of and always cover yourself with (Spares and Repair) in the description. Never a problem then for myself.

    Re: Where to sell an old phone...

    I know you don't want to sell on on eBay, but the price difference is in my opinion usually worth the slightly higher risk: but wait for maximum £1 selling fees you'll get a much better price than the re-cycling companies from my experience.

    if you really dont want to eBay, can I advise Facebook marketplace these days (as FB has pretty much killed off Gumtree from what I can tell). I sell most of my highest risk items on there and have always had very high traffic to the listings. 100% worth a look if you haven't already.
