Tips for Getting the Most Cash When You Sell Your iPhone

It’s important to select the right model when selling your iPhone so you receive the amount of money you’re quoted. The best way to identify your model is through Apple’s model guide.

In order for us to buy your iPhone without any issues, please make sure you do the following before sending it in:

  1. 1. Backup your iPhone to your computer or use Apple's iCloud Backup Service. This way all your data can be transferred over to your new device.
  2. 2. Erase your iPhone and remove Find my iPhone from your device
  3. 3. Tell your network that you will no longer be using this device and make sure it is clear for activation by a new user
  4. 4. Remove your SIM Card to use with your new device.

It’s no secret that technology devices drop in value as time goes on since new tech is released every single day. In order to maximize the resale value of your iPhone, you should sell and ship it as soon as possible to avoid any price drops from new releases.

If you’re not sure about the condition of your item, the model you have, or anything else regarding selling your device to BuyBackWorld, you should ask first to avoid any issues later on down the line. We’re always available to help 24/7 via email at [email protected]

Sell Your iPhone For Cash with BuyBackWorld

Selling your old iPhone is fast and easy with BuyBackWorld's iPhone buy back program.  All you have to do is select the generation from the list above and then choose your exact model and condition.  If you are having trouble identifying the model of the smartphone you have to sell, try looking for the model number on the back of the device that begins with "A" and is followed by four digits.  Also, make sure you identify the carrier of your iPhone model since this can have a significant impact on the trade-in value.

What happens after I sell my iPhone?

Once you agree to trade in your iPhone to BuyBackWorld, we'll send you free shipping materials so you can send us your device. You can drop it off at any US Post Office or hand it off to your local USPS mail carrier.  Before you ship the used phones that you wish to exchange for money, make sure to remove any iCloud of activation lock from your Apple device.  We do not accept iPhones that are Apple ID or iCloud locked.  Please check our FAQs for instructions on how to remove this lock before sending in your device.  We also do not accept phones that have been flagged as lost or stolen by your network carrier so please make sure that the ESN or IMEI is clear for activation by a new user.  Any balance or financing owed to your wireless carrier for the smartphone must also be paid in full so that it can be activated by a new user.  

Once we receive your Apple iPhone trade in, we'll inspect it to make sure it matches the condition you stated and then issue payment via check or PayPal.  If the model or condition does not match, our quality control agent will issue you a revised quote, which you can choose to accept or reject. You can then have your item returned to you without any cost.  If everything matches the assessment of your devices, you will receive a notification that your items were inspected successfully and payment will be issued within 1 or 2 business days.  A full data wipe and restore will be also be performed.  Our online iPhone trade in program makes selling your unwanted electronics for cash safe, easy, and hassle free.  We strive to be the first place you think of when you think of selling your iPhone for cash.
