Sell Your Cell Phone

It's easy to sell used cell phones with Decluttr

We’ve made it super easy to sell your cell phone. Just follow these simple steps!

  1. Select the brand, model and condition of your cell phone to get a FREE instant valuation. No auctions or fees!

It really is that easy, so why not find out how much your cell phone is worth today?

We’ll always offer our best possible valuation for your cell phone but there are a couple of ways to get even more cash for your phone.

Sell your phone as soon as possible - the value of a cell phone depreciates over time, so it pays to sell yours as soon as you can to get the best price.

Lock in the best valuation - we'll lock in your valuation of your phone for 28 days, so value it even if you aren’t ready to sell.

Keep your phone in the best possible condition - we'll pay more if your phone is in good condition, so put it in a case and look after it!

Plus, you’ll get the best valuation we offer for your phone trade-in or we’ll ship it back to you for FREE thanks to our Tech Price Promise!

You sure can! We buy old cell phones for cash, including older iPhone handsets.

The simplest way to find out if we’ll buy your cell phone is to search for it using our valuation engine.

We try to buy as many phones as we can, so if your phone is on our site you’re good to go!

If you want to trade in your cell phone, just tell us the make, model and condition for a FREE instant valuation. When you’re happy, ship your phone for FREE and you’ll get paid when it's processed (usually the day after it arrives). It’s a super simple, super convenient way to sell old phones!

It’s perfectly reasonable to ask “where can I sell my broken phone?”. We buy working and damaged phones, so you can sell with us even if your phone isn’t looking its best!

We buy cracked, scratched and water damaged handsets. Although we pay a little less for broken phones, you may be surprised by how much you can make. And hey, it beats leaving it to gather dust!
