Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments Helps You Keep Up With the “Phoneses”

Do you want to keep up with the Jones’? The idea of socioeconomic inferiority is something Americans struggle with daily. Whether it be the self made multimillionaires in the Lower-Upper class attempting to fit in with the Upper-upper class exclusive country clubs or something as simple as not having brand name cereals, everyone wants to be the best. So as the technology of cell phones has progressed, the need to have the best gadget has climbed right along with it. There’s one problem though: with the “best new phone” coming out every month you can’t always be ahead of the curve. Or can you?

There is a way to always have the coolest new cell phone at a fraction of the list price. Here’s an example.  Let’s say you bought a new iPhone 4 on contract last summer right when the iPhone 4S was introduced.  You snagged the iPhone 4 at a bargain price of $50 with a two year contract.  Then the iPhone 4S came out.  Who knew Siri was going to be so cool.  You had to have her but you still had almost two years under your contract and an iPhone 4S would cost $600 without a contract ):.

No problem.  Since phones without a contract are much more costly, you also get paid very well for a phone even if it is used.  At you can currently sell that iPhone 4 for $170 ($120 more than you paid for it).  Shipping is free to send the phone to SellYourCell.   You can buy a gently used iPhone 4S on eBay (only from a highly rated seller) for  $400 or less.  Out of pocket it will cost $230 to get the latest iPhone instead of $600 – about the cost of a new contract.

If you decided that you weren’t stuck on keeping up with the Phoneses you could even make money by pocketing the $170 and buying a less expensive phone and do it again when your contract is up!

This solution will work for anyone on a budget with a thirst for the best technology right when it comes out.  Or it will work if you are on a budget and want to make some money after you get that great deal for a new phone on contract.   Now you can keep up with the Phoneses!

Sell Your Cell Phone to Celebrate Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day from SellYourCell! Earth day is a day to think about how we can help the earth, our earth. One way is to recycle in order to reuse and save the earth’s valuable resources. Recycling used electronics like cell phones and iPads keeps harmful toxins out of our landfills.

Reuse is the best form of recycling because it doesn’t take any energy to reuse an item. Sites like are all about reuse. We buy used cell phones, iPads, Galaxy tablets for cash and then we resell them. We resell them to people that can’t afford to buy these gadgets when they are new.

You can get cash for keeping your old gadget out of a landfill (or your drawer). That is why the SellYourCell motto is be green AND get green.
