If you are like so many people out there, you probably have all of your old cellular phones hanging around your house in a variety of drawers, or perhaps you have an old box of them. Why do we seem to hold onto these things long after we have decided that there is a better product for us on the market? For many of us it simply does not dawn on us that we could earn a bit of pocket money and sell old cell phone units for cash. The fact of the matter is that many of those telephones that we have in drawers and boxes can make us an extra bit of pocket money.
You may have heard of the programs online that will allow you to sell old cell phone units for cash. This is a great idea. Some of these programs will even pay you within two days of when you offer it to them. However, if you care at all about the worth of your phone, you will probably not want to go with these programs. The fact of the matter is that you need to go with a program that will actually take into consideration the type of device you have. The reason that you would not want to go with one of these programs is because they usually pay low, flat rates for all of the units. Why should you settle for a flat rate when you have an expensive top of the line product? If you have a newer Blackberry, why would you want to accept the same price as those who have a bottom of the line Nokia?
There are some other options that will allow you to sell old cell phone units for a better price. These programs don't pay out as fast, so they are not as appealing to some consumers. The programs that make a bit more sense if you have a cellular telephone that is actually worth something take about 30 days to pay you for the items you send out. The reason that they take longer to pay is that they inspect every single phone individually to give you the best deal for the units. While this type of program takes longer, you can usually make more of a profit in the end.
