For your old device, it might seem like it’s going to be the end of the road for it – though, you can still turn a profit from it. Rather than collecting dust somewhere when the time comes to make the upgrade to a new handset, you can do several things to get the most bang for the buck for it. Heck, if you’re meticulous with taking good care of your phone, you can fetch top dollar for it – and that’s despite being tagged as being an “older” handset! By the time it’s all said and done, it’s possible that you won’t even have to dish out a single dollar for your next smartphone of choice if you follow some of the items listed below.

Buy poplular phones. It's the same advice when you lease a car -- the more popular the car, other things being equal, the higher the resale value. If you get a cell phone you like and it's not popular, there's only so much you can do when it comes to the resale value.

Recycling companies don't always offer the highest price but they are hassle free compared to selling your old cell privately on say eBay where you can get comeback from the buyer if they have issues. There are more and more recycling companies appearing online in America all of the time so using a cell phone recycling price comparison site such as sellmycellphones.com can help you get the best price.
