If you have an old cell phone that you would like to sell to GoMobile, simply pop by our shop at 245 W Broadway and we’ll give it an assessment. After our diagnostic, we’ll contact you with a quote on its value and we’ll email you the money! It’s far more useful to have cash in your pocket than a dusty old phone in your bottom drawer.

What Can I  Expect When I Sell My Cell Phone?

Although this post is not meant to be a definitive guide on exactly how much money you can make by selling your phone to us, we can tell you a few things that will help you understand what puts your cell phone in the good books (cha-ching!) and what’s not so good (womp-womp). Regardless of the condition of your aging device, here’s some things to note about how much you can get when you sell your phone:


if there is anything wrong with your device, like a shattered glass screen or a dead battery, this will reduce the value of your phone. But being one of Vancouver’s premier cell phone repair shops, we can easily refurbish most devices and make them new again. In other words, your damaged goods still has value!


If you have an old iPhone, for example, they come in different colours, different models and they all have different amounts of storage capacity. If your phone has 16GB worth of storage, it's not worth as much as a phone with 64GB of storage. Fortunately, we sell phones for people of all walks of life and some people aren’t looking for a huge amount of space on their cell. Any capacity will be considered but more is worth more dough.


It goes without saying: if your phone is 2 years old, it’s most likely worth more than a phone that is 5 years old. We sell iPhones as old as the iPhone 4S and devices as old as the BlackBerry 9900. We typically only sell devices that are at least one-two years old as well. If it’s too new like the iPhone X, it's probably still worth a fortune and we won't consider it just yet. But soon!

Water Damage and Bent Phones

If your device is suffering from either of these conditions, there is a high likelihood that we will not accept this device for purchase. We guarantee our used and refurbished phones for a whopping six months so if your phone is water-logged or curved, it has sadly been compromised and may break down at any moment. We may consider these phones for parts, however, so there’s no harm in asking us!

OK, I Want to Sell My Cell Phone. Show Me the Money!

We won’t low ball you like some other companies (cough, cough, APPLE STORE, cough cough*) and, what’s more, we won’t turn you away just because your phone is damaged.
