Selling a Used Phone: How to Sell Your Old Cell Phone for Instant Cash

Most of us use our phones on a daily basis, and as a result, we upgrade more frequently. Although this comes with shiny new models, we’re also left with outdated devices hanging around collecting dust.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could trade in that old device for cash? That's where ecoATM comes in, offering an easy and convenient way to sell your old cell phone for instant cash.

What is ecoATM?

We're a company that provides automated kiosks that allow people to sell their unwanted mobile phones and other electrical equipment in an environmentally responsible manner. Our objective is to promote device recycling and sustainability, thereby minimizing electronic waste and its negative environmental impact. ecoATM kiosks are available in a variety of locations (over 5,000!), making it easy for customers to trade in their outdated electronics and earn money in exchange.

How to Sell Your Phone Using EcoATM

Selling your phone for cash at an ecoATM is a quick and simple process. Here are the steps to follow when you’re ready to trade in your old device:

Step 1: Get Your Phone Ready

Take some time to prepare your old phone for sale before heading to the local ecoATM kiosk. Backup any crucial data, like contacts, images, and documents, before doing a factory reset to completely erase your personal information from the device. Keep in mind that ecoATM does not wipe the data off your device for you, so you’ll need to be diligent in this step to protect your privacy.

Step 2: Locate a Local ecoATM Kiosk 

To find the nearest ecoATM kiosk, use this website or our mobile app. With over 5,000 kiosks available nationally, you're bound to find one near you in a grocery store or mall.

Step 3: Go to the Kiosk 

Bring your old phone and a valid government-issued ID (such as a driver's license) to the nearest ecoATM kiosk after you've found it. During the transaction, you’ll need your identification document to verify your identity, so be sure not to forget it!

Step 4: Device Assessment

When you arrive at the ecoATM kiosk, simply follow the on-screen instructions. You'll be asked to plug your phone into the kiosk, which will then assess its condition within a few minutes. The value of your device will be determined by its model, age, and overall condition, and you’ll get a fair offer based on these factors.

Step 5: Accept the Offer

Following the completion of the appraisal process, ecoATM will make you an offer for your old phone. You can proceed with the transaction on the screen if you decide you want to accept the offer. Remember that once you accept the offer and turn in your device, you won’t be able to change your mind and get it back afterward. 

Step 6: Receive Payment  

When you accept the offer, ecoATM will give you cash for your old phone right away. You have the option of receiving cash or digital payment. 

Step 7: Environmentally Friendly Recycling

Following the completion of the transaction, ecoATM will dispose of your old phone. The device will be recycled properly, with its components disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
