Old Phones

Hi,

Got several old phones lying around. Some work/ some don't. Wondering what to do with em? Any chance of recycling them for a few bucks?

Bring in your smartphone, tablet and/or media player into EB Games for our associates to review. Once they assess your device they will provide you with a trade value and, if they are a participating location, a cash value. Trade credit can be used to purchase anything in store including games, accessories, mobile devices, consoles and/or gift cards!

If they're really old phones, probably not worth bothering going that route - minimum $50 trade-in at Wow (or even better, when they do the $100 promo) is a better route to go.

You can still get a minimum $150 trade-in for the S9 / S9+ at various providers. You'll only be able to trade one device though, and still pay for the S9 / S9+

For the ones that still work and decent battery life, perhaps put them on Kijiji as a lot and sell them all at once...

Some older phones like the Razr and Nokia candy bar phones are coveted....

Heck, if you have the Nokia 8890 gsm version in good condition I'd buy that off you!
