Prepare your mobile to sell it step by step

General inspection

The first thing you have to do is inspect your phone to see if it is in good condition. Generally, if it looks good and works well, you will have no problem selling. You can even get rid of it for a hefty amount if it needs some very one-off fixes. Usually your battery tends to wear out over time. But just change it to fix it.

Factory reset

Once the data has been transferred from your old terminal to a new one, the next step will be the factory reset. So what you do is delete all personalization and private files. As its name indicates, it directly remains in the same software circumstances as when it was first purchased.

Find out if there are redemption plans

In the United States, exchange plans are very common. And although in Spain we are not so used to the same manufacturer changing our old phone for another, there are some brands that are doing it. Surely the best example of this is Samsung with its Plan Renove, designed precisely for this purpose.

The operation of this system is quite easy, and just take a look at the service’s website:

  1. Select the model of your old device
  2. Answer a few short questions to find out the estimated maximum value* you can get from the sale of your old device.
  3. If you accept the estimated valuation of World Business you will receive the necessary information to know how to send your old device totally free.
  4. World Business SRL will review your device and offer you the final assessment. If you agree with it, you will receive the amount corresponding to said assessment. World Business SRL will contact you in the event that after receiving the device the requirements to participate in the program are not met.

Or think about selling it on your own

Selling your Android without trading it to the manufacturer is another option. A valid alternative if you do not have a Samsung, as well as if you want to exchange it for another or directly receive the money to use it in another way.

International platforms such as Swappa can help you when it comes to having references on how much money to ask for. Although it does not work in Spain, You can do the simulation to have some data that helps you orient yourself.

With enough information, it is somewhat less likely that you will end up selling your smartphone with Android OS on the cheap. Meanwhile, the good news is that sales of new phones are going down and used ones are going up.
