sell-your-cell-iphone6If you will be upgrading your phone when the new iPhone 6 comes out later this month SellYourCell.com is the best option for you to make some cash. For a factory-unlocked (meaning it is not tied to any carrier) we are currently offering $360. That is significantly more than you will get trading your phone in for upgrade value with your carrier and it is the best price you will find on the internet.

Apple products hold their value more than any other product in the electronics industry. That iPhone 4s sitting in your drawer is worth more than you think. At SellYourCell.com we currently offer up to $120 for an iPhone 4s in good condition.

The best way for you to get top dollar for you iPhone is to “unlock” it. That means it is no longer ties to a specific carrier and can be used on any network. Many companies say they offer unlocking services, but they are all scams. The way to properly unlock your phone is to call your carrier and ask them to do it. Different carriers have different policies in place regarding the procedure for unlocking phones so you will need to check with your cellular provider your phone is currently tied to.

With the upcoming release of the iPhone 6, SellYourCell.com is ready to give you the swiftest service and the highest prices around.

I love my wife, but sometimes her cell phone habits are quite annoying. I’ve been observing her lately to determine what it is that frustrates me the most.

I have narrowed it down to 8 distinct actions.

1. Right when she gets to the front of the coffee line she holds it up because she is finishing a text.

Being on your phone while waiting in line is understandable, but when you get to the front of the line, come on! Get off the phone and order your tall skinny decaff vanilla latte with only one pump.

2. Before she drinks her coffee she takes a picture of it.

I mean, really?

3. Yesterday during date night I think she may have posted to Facebook in the bathroom.

I started getting notifications from everyone asking me what we had ordered at the hot new restaurant in town.

4. She starts to browse the internet when I drive.

I don’t know why, but when I am driving and totally bored, her being on her phone drives me nuts. I am not a chauffeur.

5. When I get home from work and she is on her phone.

Ok, it’s not 1955, I don’t expect a martini and a food rub, but when I walk in the door and she is scrolling Instagram I just lose it. Of course I don’t tell her I am upset, it just brews until it bubbles over into a blow up, or I have a beer.

6. When she posts our take-out dinner.

She took about 45 pictures of this sushi until it looked good enough to post on Instagram and wouldn’t let our guests eat. I almost lost my mind.

7. She is always on her phone, but when I really need to reach her I can’t.

8. No explanation needed as to why this is annoying.

The cell hunt

October 1st is usually a date that ushers in the holiday season. Pumpkin lattes are going strong at the coffee shop, the leaves are starting to turn and you may even start to see, much to your dismay, decorative holiday displays at stores.

Well, October 1st now means so much more if you are a resident of the San Francisco Bay Area. SellYourCell.com is launching the most epic scavenger hunt ever.

We are all excited about the release of the new iPhone 6. I am sure some of you will even be waiting in line for one. Wouldn’t it be so much better if you could find one and get it for free? Wouldn’t it be more fun to work your mental powers, follow the clues  and get a free unlocked iPhone 6?

On October 1st SellYourCell.com will start hiding a total of 6 iPhone 6s in different locations around the Bay Area. We will leave clues on our Facebook Page and Twitter profile that will allow you to hunt down the phone’s location. The first person to find it will be the winner of that phone.

So get ready. A new iPhone 6 might be yours if you’re smart enough and fast enough to find it.

Please spread the word about the Cell Hunt. Social network engagement will be key in finding these phones. You can follow the tweets using the hashtag #TheCellHunt.

 

How to fundraise

We have been so excited lately with some community outreach we have been doing to help non-profits make their fundraising goals.

At times it can be hard for non-profits to come up with easy and effective ways to raise money. One method that can be really effective and raise your group hundreds, if not thousands of dollars is to collect donated cell phones and turn them in to SellYourCell.com. We will give non-profit organizations special pricing on any order of 20 or more phones.

We believe that when you are working for the greater good, you deserve support and help. That is why at SellYourCell.com we not only beat any other on-line cell phone recycle company, we go above our regular pricing to give your organization even more money for your collected phones.

For ideas on how to get started or assistance with setting up your fundraising campaign, please contact ian@SellYourCell.com.

Every day we work to add new cellular devices to our list of phones we can purchase from you. We currently accept 324 different models. This includes Apple, Blackberry, HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and Sony.

At SellYourCell.com we will give you the highest price for your phone or tablet. Even that old, cracked phone that is totally dead may be worth something!

So head on over to SellYourCell.com. We are here to make selling your phone fast, easy and reliable.

We even take phones with suspicious holes. No questions asked.

We-Buy-cell-phones

I’ve been thinking about the growing dependency on technology and the general feeling of being glued to our devices or media sources as they relate to our ability to be present and connect with our fellows.

On one hand, our phones give us incredible power to connect. One could say that the ability to contact anyone we wish or to have at our fingertips access to a wealth of technology not otherwise available is a gift and something not to be discredited.

At times man longs for periods to be truly off the grid and disconnected. It allows him to find peace with his own thoughts and to actually look at the world as it is right in front of him as opposed to through a medium.

I guess what could be healthy is finding a balance between these to.

I resent being told I am on my phone too much or that I am somehow damaging myself, children or the world through the use of technology. If technology can be used to enhance and connect us then it is valuable.

It could be argued that through technology we find a means to not actually connect with anyone. We create an illusion that we are aware and genuine, but hide behind the safety of a screen to reach out to others. I know I have been guilty of this.

So where is the balance? How do you unplug?

I haven’t fully figured that out. I would love to hear from you on what you do to find a balance between your device life and your real life.

We will be having this discussion over on SellYourCell.com’s Facebook Page. Please join us in the discussion.

This baby is shocked by how much she is paying for Facebook to not deliver results.

It’s interesting as a business getting into the social media marketing side of things. Where do you start? How do you get followers? How do you get people to engage with your brand?

Facebook would have you believe you need to pay them in order to get people to engage with your brand. They only allow a small percentage of a page’s followers to even see what is being shared. If that small amount of followers engages with the post, then Facebook will allow more people to see the content and so on. Facebook tells you to pay for advertisement of your page so you get more likes and thus more engagement, but really what is this all about?

There is a really interesting video that exposes a problem connected with this type of Facebook marketing. It’s 9 minutes long, but worth the watch. It explains that Facebook ads for your page actually reduce engagement with your brand in the long run. Even with tons of likes no one will engage or see your content!

So if you are a business and want to engage with your followers on social media or grow your fan base, how the heck do you do it? What is the point of even having a Facebook Page if no one is going to see it unless you pay Facebook? But then if you pay Facebook it makes it worse. It’s like gambling, the deeper you dig yourself in the deeper you go and the harder it is to get out.

What to do, what to do…

We have been working to grow SellYourCell.com’s social media followers and grow awareness and support for our company and site. Of course we want to do this because we give the best prices and service out there and WANT TO SCREAM IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!

I guess maybe the real answer is to create content that people are actually interested in seeing, commenting on, liking and sharing. Fundamentally that is how all social media works. I may dare say that this is how life works. Create things that people are interested in and in turn be interested in what other people are creating.

There is no substitute for true and actual engagement.

And there in lies the challenge…
