Can I Sell My Broken Phone?

The simple answer is yes!

Don’t worry if your phone is broken, you can still sell broken mobile phones on You are also not alone as lots of people break their phones. A recent survey of 2000 people by, the mobile phone phone repair company, showed that as many as 40% of people are walking around with a broken phone with as many as 21% of people using a phone with a cracked screen.

It very easy to sell a broken phone or tablet on SellMyMobile. All our mobile phone buyers buy broken phones and tablets. The reason they do this is because they will generally repair and refurbish phones before selling them on. So for instance if a phone comes in with a smashed screen this is not a problem because they will replace the screen and refurbish the device before re-selling it.

Obviously if your phone is broken or damaged you won’t get full value for it but depending on the model it can still be worth a lot of money. For every phone SellMyMobile gives you the working and broken prices for each device so you can clearly see how much your broken phone is worth. This is what you need to do to sell broken phones:

Want to sell a broken phone? Here’s how:

  1. Search for your device by entering the make and model into the Search Box above or on the homepage

  2. Our price comparison engine compares prices from all the leading mobile phone buyers to get you the most cash

  4. Choose the best deal and click ‘Sell Now’. Follow the instructions to send your device to your chosen buyer. Then all you need to do is sit back and wait to get paid!


How do i know if my phone is classed as ‘Working’ or ‘Broken’?

Good question. SellMyMobile is a price comparison site that compares prices from lots of different mobile phone buyers. Some have slight differences in their criteria for the classification between ‘Working’ and ‘Broken’ but generally speaking here is a summary of how they break down:

Working Phone
100% fully functional
No cracks on screen or body
No water damage
Normal wear & tear is fine but no major cosmetic damage

Not 100% fully functional
Cracks on screen or body
Missing parts
Severe cosmetic damage

Sometimes it can be difficult to decide which category it falls under. If in doubt we would advise selling it as ‘Working’ as the buyer will contact you if there is a problem, that way you can always be assured of getting the maximum value. When the buyer receives your device they will test and assess it and if the condition is different to what you stated then they will contact you and may give you a revised offer based on the condition.

How much can i get for a broken phone?

It depends on the level of damage. If your phone is damaged you are never going to get full value but you could generally get up to a maximum of 80%. This is for minor damage, if the damage is really severe you will likely get a lot less. Once the buyer has assessed the device they might contact you to give you a revised offer if the level of damage is worse than the condition stated.

Using SellMyMobile we compare prices from all the buyers in the market to get you the best deal when selling a broken phone. At SellMyMobile we have made it easy for you to sell broken phones for cash at the best possible price. So if you want to sell a broken phone SellMyMobile can help you get the guaranteed most cash.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Release: What You Need To Know

Unless you’ve been living on Mars for the past few weeks, you’ll no doubt have been aware that Apple announced a slew of of shiny new gadgets at a massive event in San Francisco last night.

iPhone6s-Hand-SafariQuickAction-PR-PRINT 2


Every time an Apple launch event comes around there’s an awful lot of hype and this one was no different. Thousands packed in to the 7,000-seat Bill Graham Civic Auditorium to hear Apple CEO Tim Cook and co give the lowdown.


So, after all the hype, here’s what we know. Apple is launching:


  • The iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus
  • A bigger iPad Pro
  • An Apple TV with its own app store
  • An update to the Apple Watch

The iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus




The iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus will be available in gold, silver, grey and rose gold and will come in 16, 64 and 128GB versions.


Perhaps the biggest announcement for the new iPhones is 3D Touch – a pressure-sensitive screen which will recognise the strength of your touch and do different things accordingly. So, lightly press to look at a website, press harder to go into the content itself.


There’s a better camera, too. The 12-megapixel camera will be able to film 4K video, allow you to FaceTime in 5 megapixels and comes with Live Photos – a feature which allows you to “reveal the moments immediately before and after a shot was taken”, Apple said.


And the devices will be fitted with Apple’s A9 chip, a third-generation chip with 70% faster CPU, so better battery life.


iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus: release date and pricing

Both models will be released on September 25th in the UK, with pre-orders starting Saturday 12th.



  • iPhone 6s 16GB – £539
  • iPhone 6s 64GB – £619
  • iPhone 6s 128GB – £699

For the iPhone 6s Plus, add £80 on top for each version.



The iPad Pro, Apple TV and Apple Watch upgrade
The new iPad Pro will come with a bigger 12.9-inch display with 5.6 million megapixels – the most ever in an Apple device. The firm also announced Apple Pencil for the Pro – a stylus-type device through which users can draw and sketch.



The revamped Apple TV will come with voice search and an App Store  – meaning you can “choose what to watch and when you want to watch it”.



As for the Apple Watch, the company announced that WatchOS 2 will be released on September 16, as well as an assortment of new cases and strap-bands.


What they say


“The only thing that has changed with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is everything — 3D Touch lets users interact with iPhone in entirely new and fun ways, and the innovative Live Photos brings your pictures to life.” Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing


“It’s easy to scoff at Apple making a crowd cheer and whoop at a “pencil”, but it’s a big step forward for the most popular tablet on the market.” Dave Lee, BBC North America technology reporter


“I would say this was the most action-packed Apple event since the iPhone introduction in 2007, with three hardware upgrades — iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. Lots of significant updates in one well-paced two-hour event.” Brian X. Chen, New York Times

What do you think about the new iPhone? Let us know!


If you want to sell your old iPhone for a new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, do it today. The prices of old phones tend to drop when new models are released, so don’t delay!

If you’re looking to sell your iPhone and buy a new iPhone 6 s or iPhone 7, remember to check our blog for more updates after the launch.

Looking to sell your iPhone? What we know about the new iPhone 6s / iPhone 7

Tomorrow evening Apple head honcho Tim Cook will, once again, stand on a stage, whip a phone out of his pocket, press a few buttons and smile – only for the assembled media, Apple geeks, internet and just about everyone else to go absolutely crazy. Yup – it’s the latest Apple iPhone launch, and it’s set to be the biggest yet.



If you’re looking to sell your iPhone for a brand-spanking new, next-generation iPhone 6s or iPhone 7 (we’re not sure what it’s going to be called yet), then here’s the lowdown on what to expect from the much-anticipated launch event…



So what do we know about Apple’s new products?

At the moment, reports suggest the new iPhone 6s or iPhone 7 will be launched on Wednesday 9th at an event in San Francisco. But that’s not all. Alongside a new iPhone, we can also expect:


  • new iPads
  • new Apple Watches
  • a new Apple TV


Major changes?

Perhaps. The San Francisco event takes place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. This place can hold 7,000 people, so it’s fair to say we could be in for a few surprises. But here’s a round-up of the rumour mill:

iPhone 7 or no?

Many expect the new iPhone to have an ‘S’ moniker in keeping with Apple’s smartphone history. But don’t be surprised if we see it being called the iPhone 7. If it’s significantly different from previous models, then it could well be.


Force Touch

One of the most interesting features is the development of Force Touch, which is already on the iWatch. Like a sort-of 3D touchscreen, Force Touch will mean you can tap, lightly press or do a hard press on the iPhone and get different results. For example: a deep press on a book could open it in an e-reader app.


Sharper Shooting

It has been suggested that the new iPhone’s camera could come with 4K video capture and 12 megapixels, as opposed to 8 in previous devices.


Internal upgrades
As with most Apple launches, expect to see some improvements to Apple’s internal tech, like a faster processor to allow for smoother running speeds.


UK release date?
We can expect to see the new iPhone device on the shelves pretty sharpish. Rumours suggest the new iPhone will go on sale from around September 18th to September 25th.


Excited about the new iPhone? We’ll be watching with eyes peeled tomorrow evening – stay tuned for all the confirmed details when we get them!
