Who Buys Broken iPhones Near Me? How To Sell Your Broken iPhone

We’d love to buy your broken iPhone with an on-the-spot cash offer. Even though your iPhone is broken or even in disrepair doesn’t mean it’s completely worthless. In most cases, broken iPhones still hold some value you just have to know how and where to unlock this value.

If you don’t live near one of our locations, you can send us a picture of your phone along with filling out an online form. From this information we make an offer on your device. If you choose to accept, you mail us your phone and we mail you a check so long as the device matches the pictures and description you submitted.

Benefits to selling your phone to My Broken Phone:

-You get paid right on the spot! You don’t have to wait (fingers crossed) that someone actually pays you. We offer same day cash payment.

-It’s safer and there are no risks. You don’t have to go out of your way meeting a stranger in some random grocery store parking lot. Not only are these causal sales meetings time consuming but they can also be dangerous.

Sell Your iPhone For Parts

Even if your device is broken there are still valuable parts inside of your iPhone that people may want to purchase. If you decide to list a broken iPhone for sale online, your best bet is to list it for parts. Make sure to clearly state in the description that the phone is broken. Include as many pictures and descriptions of damages as possible so that people know exactly what they are purchasing.

Recycle Your Broken iPhone

If your iPhone turns out to be worthless, it’s important to properly recycle your device so that it doesn’t end up polluting a landfill somewhere, making innocent people and animals ill. When smartphones and other electronic devices end up in the regular trash they eventually end up polluting our Planet. Responsibly recycle all of your electronics, including broken phones. Need a place to recycle your device? We offer free electronic recycling drop off.

Wait! Before You Sell Or Recycle Your Broken iPhone…

Before you let your smartphone out of your grasp there are a few important things you should always do to protect your privacy.

-Unpair your device from anything it is currently paired with, such as Apple Watch, your car, etc.

-Back up your device so that you don’t lose any valuable data, pics, etc. when you restore your device.

-Once you know FOR SURE that your phone is properly backed up, it’s time to delete it all. Go into Settings > iCloud, scroll down and click Sign Out. (If you have iOS 7 or earlier it’ll say Delete Account.)

-Click Sign Out a second time, and click Delete from My iPhone. At this point you’ll be prompted to enter your password.

-In order to sign out of the iTunes & App Store, go to Settings > iTunes & App Store > Apple ID > Sign Out

-Go to Settings (yes, again) and click General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. If you have Find My iPhone turned on, you might be prompted to enter your Apple ID and password.

-If prompted for your device passcode or Restrictions passcode, enter it and click Erase [device].

What If I Already Sold My Broken iPhone But Didn’t Delete/Restore The Device?

Have you already sold and sent off your device without first deleting everything? No need to panic, it’s not too late to try and protect yourself.

-First, try asking the buyer to erase all of your content and settings using the steps outlined above.

-If you use iCloud or Find My iPhone, log into either of these platforms on a computer. From here you can select the device and delete it. After the device is erased from your account, make sure to go one step further and Remove from Account.

-If you don’t use iCloud or Find My iPhone, you can change your Apple ID passcode. Albeit, this won’t remove any personal information still stored on your iPhone, but it will prevent the new owner from deleting your content off of iCloud.

-If your new phone is not an Apple device, you can deregister iMessage.

-If you use Apple Pay, you can log onto iCloud.com and remove your credit/debit cards. Go into Settings to see a list of all devices using Apple Pay. You can click the device you’re after and select Remove.
