There are many people who want to use premium quality consumer products but cannot afford them. Hence, they turn to used or pre-owned luxury items because it can be afforded. There is a large market for used cell phones and you can get a good deal on yours.

In order to get a good deal on your cell phone, you need to keep your warranty and billing papers in order. Try to improve the appearance of your phone by removing the stickers that you stuck on the back cover or the colourful back cover guard that you put on. You can also wipe the back cover clean so that the phone appears new. Delete any personal information that you have on the cell phone i.e. contacts list, call logs, audio and video files, pictures, notes etc. If you are a user of an Android phone, then you should also log the email address that you are using to operate the phone.
