Question about used phones


Jan 1, 2010, 12:10 PM
Does US Cellular buy used phones from it's customers? I know that they sell used phones, just wondering if they buy them as well. Thanks.

This is generally a case by case answer per the individual store.

Most commonly stores do not buy customer handsets since it carries a liability. Too many bad apples with questionable merchandise. This is the business of pawn shops and consignment shops. Retail stores need to be able to back the product they are selling with some type of guarantee and when the product is purchased from Mr/Mrs Schmo they don't know its history and are unable to offer any warranty.

If your looking to sell a phone or phones that you have laying around then your absolute best bet is to go on Craig's List or eBay. You must remember that retailers buy cheap and sell high so if your looking to earn real money from the merchandise then you should sell dire...

No US Cellular store will ever buy back a phone from a customer. If you purchased a used phone and have had recurring issues with the device, depending on the consultant you are working with they may offer you a certain amount toward a different used phone, just as one option. But they will not buy back phones.
