Trade In Your Smartphone, And Upgrade to A New One

Posted by 1 on

The smartphone market is booming. Like clockwork, there are new devices coming out all the time and in many cases, a new feature is added to make the previous installment obsolete. While you could upgrade your phone with every generation and collect the old models, it can be a better idea for you to trade in your smartphone when you upgrade to a new one. This can help you to cut the costs of the upgrade and put more money back in your pocket.


When you look at the top smartphones available, you will find that they come down to some important brands. There is the iPhone that has dominated the market for years while Samsung and Motorola each have their Android devices. While the iPhone has one particular model that is released almost annually, the android phones are different in that new models and features on various devices come out all the time. With more competition, companies like Motorola and Samsung have to justify the upgrade and ensure that they not only meet what the other companies are doing but expand on them also. Especially since the android market is continuing to grow and evolve.

Of course, this does mean that phones become obsolete in a short period of time. Every few months, new features mean your smartphone may not be as impressive as one that was just released. Fortunately, you can trade it in now with some companies and get the latest smartphone for your provider’s network at a great price. Of course, you do need to ensure that the phone you choose is compatible for your network. For example, if you have an ATT phone, it will not work on the Verizon network unless it is unlocked. Sprint and Net10 use different networks and the Straight Talk phones can only be used on this company’s network.

If you want to upgrade your phone and it isn’t time for you to upgrade yet, you do have an option. You can trade in your current phone for a credit and then find a company that offers refurbished phones for ATT, Verizon or Sprint or you can choose an unlocked phone of a popular model that can run on any network, including Straight Talk and Net10. That will mean you have additional options from a refurbished one and you can walk away with a better phone.


Just make sure when you turn in your phone for cash that you are choosing a company that has been in business for some time and is trusted, like Gadget Graveyard. That way, you know you are getting the best price for your device that will put more money in your pocket for getting the phone you really want. It is much better than being stuck with a phone that was okay for a time but isn’t really one you want to have ownership of for the next two years when your provider decides you can upgrade your phone again.
