Your Views About Selling Smartphones Online?
in Technology

Greetings!

Honestly speaking, I am a very reserved person about my gadgets and usually, I don't sell them. However, this Christmas, I am thinking to get a new smartphone and due to short of money, I am thinking to sell my used phone. Secondly, I am confused about where should I sell it. Like I am considering Craigslist or eBay as an option but many of friends suggested me to go with Cash A Phone place to sell phones directly to a website. According to my friend, they will take responsibility for data breach protection etc because they resell these phones to developing countries after recycling. However, I will reset my phone and will remove everything from it.

Do you think removing data and reset would be enough to protect my data? Actually, I heard some apps that can still recover the data after reset and deletion of data. You can also read the article to know more about it from here https://www.digitalinformationworld.com/2019/11/selling-your-used-phone-can-be-dangerous-for-your-privacy.html/. Moreover, I also would like to hear your experience of selling used phone online. Especially, tell me if you ever used Swappa to sell phones online.

Waiting for your suggestions. Any tip about data protection would also be appreciated.

  • Just download all of the data from your old phone to your new phone, or back it up to either the cloud or whatever storage service  the OS on your phone uses

    Which outlet or mobile company is giving massive discount? In such deals, I noticed they offer a lesser discount.

    I mean, yeah it wouldn’t be big, but it would still be at least a little off of a possibly expensive device

  • Also, T-Mobile tends to do discounts on trade ins, I don’t know for sure about other companys

  • I recommend MusicMagpie. I recently sold my old Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini and Samsung Galaxy S6 for £30 and £60 respectively. This gave me an excellent cashback of £90 for my new iPhone 8 which cost £200.

  • @BonitaVanhooser If you are worried about your data being recovered, there are special programs that scramble the information by over writing it with random data several times that makes it unreadable.

    Selling your phone online or trading it in at a store isn't a bad idea, especially if it still works just fine. You will effectively get a discount on your new one.
    At some point in the distant past, the universe went through a phase of cosmic inflation, Stars formed, planets coalesced, and on at least one of them life took root and developed into the human race, who conquered fire, built societies and developed technology .
    All of that so we can argue about nothing.

    Can you share such programs to remove data from the phone permanently? I am a little scared about recovery apps.
