How to sell your phone with SellMyMobile

Selling your phone and getting the most money for it couldn't be simpler.

Step 1 - Find your device. Type the name of the phone, tablet or smartwatch you want to sell into the search bar at the top of the page. Select it - along with the correct internal storage, condition, and network - and we'll show you all the available quotes from every buyer and recycler we can find.

Step 2 - Pick a recycler. Choose a quote you like, then click through and enter your details.

Step 3 - Send your phone and get your money. Use the postage pack the recycler sends you, or mail it off yourself. Payment will arrive once the recycler receives your phone.

Choosing a recycler

Our comparison table is sorted by price by default, so you can see the mobile recyclers offering the most money for your phone right at the top. We recommend picking one that offers you a high price.

However, there are other things you should take into account too. Remember to take notice of things such as:

  • Postage - Does the recycler offer free postage? If not, how much will it cost?
  • Return policies - Does the recycler offer free returns if you're not happy with your order?
  • Ratings - What's the recycler's star rating? Does it have happy customers?
  • Payment methods - How do you prefer receive payment, and what does the recycler offer?

Once you've made a decision over which recycler looks best, click 'sell now', and we'll take you straight to the company's site so you can get selling right away.

Payment options

The options available for sending you your money vary depending on the recycler. The most common ones are:

  • Bank transfer
  • PayPal
  • Cheque
  • Vouchers or gift cards
  • Charity donation

In many cases, bank transfers can be made on the same day the recycler receives your device. For other methods, however, you may have to wait a few days.

Look out for recyclers that carry an additional charge for some payment methods, too - especially cheques.


Many recycling companies offer free postage when you send them your phone - if a recycler doesn't, remember to factor the cost of postage in to your quote before you make a decision.

It's also worth checking exactly what that free postage covers. Some recyclers offer freepost packs, but only insure items up to £50; while others offer a full courier service completely free.

If you're sending a valuable device, look out for recyclers that cover postage for Royal Mail Special Delivery, which insures items at a much higher cost - or factor in those extra postage costs when you choose a buyer.
