FAQs

How do I prepare my phone for trade-in?

Before you trade in your phone, be sure to back up any data you want to keep and perform a factory reset to wipe the device clean. This step is critical to maintaining your privacy and ensuring that your personal data isn't accessible to the next owner, or to us here at The Big Phone Store.

And don't worry about any lingering data on your device, as we provide a free professional data destruction service on every phone that we buy back! Remember to remove your SIM card, and also your memory card.

Can I trade in my phone if it is damaged or broken?

Even if you have a damaged phone, don't assume it has zero value. At The Big Phone Store, we accept phones in various conditions and offer a price based on the specific damages.

And even if your phone is completely beyond repair, it will contain rare-earth metals that need to be recycled, as well as harmful chemicals that need to be disposed of responsibly rather than buried in a landfill. In other words, the decision to trade in your phone can often be worthwhile, even if the device isn't in perfect shape.
