Do you want to give up your mobile phone and buy a new one with more advanced technology? It is very important to consider some technical aspects, meant to keep your data safe.
- Make a backup
If you do not want to lose your contacts, photos or documents, it is crucial to back up before you put your phone on sale. And this step is very simple: if you are an Apple user, you can back up using iCloud or iTunes, and if you are an Android user, the easiest way is to save your data through your Google account.
- Do not skip “general cleaning”
And here we are not just talking about cleaning the phone itself with a napkin so that it can remove the traces of dirt. More important than that is to remove all personal files. If you are an Apple user, go to Settings> General> Reset> Delete Content and Configurations. But be careful! Before you reset your phone, log out of your iCloud account – otherwise, you also delete your backup. For Android users it is easier: go to Settings> Backup & Reset.
- Remove all personal accessories
From the SIM card to the memory card (if you used one), remove and keep them. As for the other accessories, you can keep them or sell them separately.
- Make him look presentable
Before you sell your phone, clean it very well and repair any minor defects. Thus, you increase your chances of selling it as soon as possible, at a better price.
