What to Know About Selling Your Broken Phone or Tablet

Selling your cracked phone or broken phone or tablet isn’t a buyback solution, nor is it considered a trade in. Rather, your device, in various states of wear and damage, still has value. From here, it can be refurbished to be later sold as used, or it can be taken apart for parts, then allocated toward repairing other phones or recycling.

What Is a Broken Phone or Tablet?

When talking about a damaged device, “broken” constitutes specific issues. It can encompass an otherwise working device with a damaged battery, water damage, cracked screen or poor or incorrect functionality, or something that won’t turn on. This spectrum includes common scenarios like a cracked screen, visible signs of wear and tear, or buttons that no longer work.

Outside of “broken,” phones are classified as “working” and “used” – the device shows signs of wear but continues to perform as expected – or “faulty,” in which it physically displays minimal wear but doesn’t function correctly. “Faulty” phones may have issues with charging, may no longer take pictures or may have an unresponsive touchscreen.

Not every phone or tablet can be sold, however. Including those:

  • Blacklisted based on payment history.
  • Reported lost or stolen.
  • Twisted out of its shape.
  • Snapped in half.
  • Featuring a glued-in memory card.
  • Severely water damaged.
  • Which aren’t authentic and have been created to deceive the buyer.

As a middle step, if your phone or tablet is heavily damaged to the point it may not be able to be recycled, consider having it repaired first before attempting to sell it.

How Much Money Can You Get for a Broken Phone / Cracked Phone?

All mobile phones and tablets retain some value. Even if it can’t be refurbished, the individual parts can go toward repairing other devices. As such, you can still get cash for a broken phone or tablet – a vast improvement over having it sit on a shelf or drawer or contributing to e-waste on a global scale.

Value depends on the degree of damage, whether or not the phone is locked as well as the make and model. There’s potential to receive 50% of what you initially paid for it.
