How our Buy Back Store works
Since 1999, The Big Phone Store has provided customers with a knowledge, helpful, friendly service. We also pride ourselves on buying back mobile phones for a fair price.
So here's a few of the frequently asked questions about our Buy Back Store:
Why sell my smartphone?
How much is a Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) worth?
How do I sell my old Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016)?
Is my device worth more if I sell it with a case, cover and / or screen protector?
How do I wipe the personal data from my smartphone?
Can I sell my broken Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016)?
Where can I recycle my handset if it's broken or damaged beyond repair?
Let's start with 'why sell your smartphone'. Well we can think of at least three great reasons:
It's in high demand!
It's true to say that your Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) is a slightly older handset these days. On the other hand, that means it's more affordable - making it both the perfect first smartphone for a young family member or a super second / 'work' device!
You'll get rid of your phone-clutter!
Recent surveys suggest that around half of us have at least five used handsets hidden away in boxes, drawers and cupboards. So sell your Galaxy J3 (2016) and take a significant step towards phone-clutter freedom today!
You'll be protecting the environment!
Despite higher numbers of recycling options than ever before, too many mobile devices are still being sent to landfill. Here, their metal constructions and lithium batteries often emit harmful chemicals and toxins into the environment.
At The Big Phone Store, we never send parts or devices to landfill. With over 50 years of combined knowledge, experience and expertise in the mobile phone recycling sector, we instead promise to dispose of them in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
How much can I sell my Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) for?
It all depends on three things at The Big Phone Store - 'network', 'condition' and 'storage'. That said, there are a few ways you can maximise your valuation. Here's our top tips:
Contact your network provider (EE, Three, Vodafone, etc.) and find out whether your Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) is still 'locked'. In most cases, 'unlocked' devices have higher trade-in value. You can also visit their websites, where you'll find lots of useful information about 'locked' and 'unlocked' handsets.
We accept the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) 8GB and 16GB. Higher internal 'storage' usually means a higher cash value!
With 'condition', take a look at our detailed and comprehensive criteria above. They've been split into just four categories: New, Good, Poor and Broken.
At The Big Phone Store, we check our handset valuations daily to make sure you're getting the best possible deal. Even better, our Price Promise Match means if you find a better price elsewhere, we'll instantly match it!
There's just four steps between you and getting paid fast for your Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016). Here's how it works:
Place your order. Complete the valuation calculator to get things started. Then it's just a matter of filling in a few personal details and choosing a designated bank account for the cash transfer!
Send us your phone. We'll send a Welcome Pack (usually within 24 hours of any order being placed). It contains all the information you need to post your Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) back to us - including a Freepost Bag and packing instructions.
Your phone reaches us. As soon as your device arrives, we'll email you. We'll then check whether the 'network', 'storage' and 'condition' are as you indicated.
You get paid! As soon as everything's confirmed, we process your payment immediately.
We aim to pay out for your unwanted handset after just a few days. But that always depends on postal delivery times and how quickly you send us your Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016)!
Can I sell my Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) with a case, cover and / or screen protector?
There's no added cash value if you send your Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) with a case, cover and / or screen protector. These items are what we call 'supplementary', so they'll be disposed of responsibly if sent with any device.
But remember... If you've been using a case, cover and / or screen protector, your handset is more likely to be in better condition - which almost certainly means a higher trade-in valuation!
At The Big Phone Store, we highly recommend buying a case, cover and / or screen protector for any smartphone. They not only guard against unexpected bumps, drops and scrapes - they also protect the resale value of any handset. So buy yours in our online store today!
If you want to sell your Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016), we always think it's a good idea to perform a Factory Reset. This returns the device to its Factory State (original settings), as well as wiping any personal data. Here's our handy guide:
Before proceeding, make sure you have at least 50% battery - if not, connect your Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) to a power source. A Factory Reset also cannot be undone and you'll permanently lose any data. Always ensure personal data you want to keep is either backed up or transferred to another device.
Turn off your device.
Press and hold the 'Volume Up' and 'Home' at the same time.
While holding these buttons, press and hold the 'Power' button. Only release the three buttons when you see the Samsung logo appear on the screen (this could take 10-15 seconds).
In the Recovery Menu, use the 'Volume' buttons to navigate and the 'Power' button to select. Find and choose 'Wipe Data / Factory Reset'. When prompted, select 'Yes' - the factory data reset may take several minutes to complete.
Then select 'Reboot system now'. Again, allow several minutes for the reboot process to complete.
Can I sell my damaged Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016)?
You can sell a broken or damaged handset to The Big Phone Store. But unfortunately, not every broken handset can be traded-in for cash. Our full criteria for 'broken' devices is always a good place to start - if your Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) meets these conditions, we guarantee an unbeatable price for it!
But if your smartphone is damaged or broken beyond repair, there's another option... And that's to recycle it with us for free! Every device sent to us that we cannot fix will be disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way possible, as well as in complete accordance with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, the Environmental Protection Act (1990) and Hazardous Waste Regulations (2005).
