My phone was worth more last month – why?
The value of phones, tablets and wearables changes on a daily basis. It all depends on demand. WeBuyAnyPhone.com guarantees prices for 14 days, giving you plenty of time to sell your device for a market-beating price.
How does the 14-day price guarantee work?
Once we’ve provided you with a price for your device, we guarantee it for 14 days. As long as we receive your device with 14 days, and your tech is as described, you’ll receive the price we promised.
Will you reduce the price you’ve offered for my device?
As long as your phone, tablet or wearable is as described, you’ll always get the price we offer. If things aren’t quite as they seem and we have to revalue your device, we’ll provide a revised price, which you don’t have to accept.
How long will it take to test my device?
We aim to test most devices on the day we receive them (Monday-Friday, excluding public holidays). We’ll let you know as soon as it’s done.
What can I sell to WeBuyAnyPhone.com?
We love phones, tablets and wearables, especially from Apple, Samsung and Google. A full list of what we want, along with the latest prices, is available on the website.
Why have you asked me for proof of purchase?
To protect you and us. Devices valued over £400 are very current so it’s less likely people want to sell them. We ask for proof of purchase to make sure the device is yours to sell.
What happens if I get the model, condition, colour or network wrong?
We’ll identify this when your device is tested - it may affect the value. Don’t worry, we’ll let you know and, if necessary, provide a revised price, which you don’t have to accept.
Will you buy my device if it’s damaged or faulty?
Yes, no problem. In fact you might be surprised how much your damaged or faulty phone, tablet or wearable is worth. However, the device MUST switch on. If it doesn’t we can’t accept it because we can’t wipe it, which means personal data might still be accessible.
Be sure to select ‘Faulty’ when confirming the condition.
My device is completely dead – will you buy it?
Sorry no. The device MUST turn on – if it doesn’t we can’t accept it because we can’t wipe it, which means personal data might still be accessible.
Will you buy my device if it’s water-damaged?
Yes but the device can only be sold as ‘Faulty’. However, it MUST switch on. If it doesn’t we can’t accept it because we can’t wipe it, which means personal data might still be accessible. Be sure to select ‘Faulty’ when confirming the condition.
How do I confirm the model of my phone or tablet?
The easiest way is by using the IMEI (it’s a code number, unique to your device).
Using your phone’s keypad, enter *#06# and your IMEI will be displayed. Enter the IMEI into the IMEI Checker on the WeBuyAnyPhone.com website and all will be revealed.
For iPads, tablets and wearables, please check the manufacturer’s instructions.
Why is my device only worth £0.00?
Because it’s old and no one wants it. However, we’re more than happy to recycle old (and broken) devices because it’s the responsible thing to do.
How many devices can I send at one time?
You can send as many devices as you like. In fact, the more, the merrier!
If you’re a business customer with a larger quantity of devices, call 03 333 445 584 to arrange free secure collection.
Do you accept stolen phones?
No. Any device received by us and identified as stolen will be destroyed, and no payment made.
Do you accept blocked/blacklisted phones?
No. Most blocked phones are lost or stolen. Any device received by us and identified as lost or stolen will be destroyed, and no payment made.
If you’re the rightful owner of a blocked phone you should contact your network (or finance provider if purchasing on credit) to arrange for the device to be unblocked.

More about blacklisted phones and tablets
A blacklisted phone or tablet means the device is listed (on the GSMA international register) as lost or stolen and so, by law, WeBuyAnyPhone.com must retain your device for up to 28 days.
During this period, you can apply to your mobile network (or finance provider if purchasing on credit) to have the device removed from the blacklist. Once it’s removed, you can continue with the sale of the device to WeBuyAnyPhone.com.
If the device cannot be removed from the register, we are obliged by law to retain the device and inform the Police.
How does blacklisting work?
We use MobiCHECK® diagnostics device check software that provides instant access to an extensive data ecosystem to help us avoid buying stolen mobile phones. Combining live data from four key sources, including; Insurance Companies, Law Enforcement Agencies, Recyclers and Mobile Networks, MobiCHECK® is an instant due-diligence solution that provides assurance that the phones we purchase have been comprehensively checked and authenticated.
Any device that connects to a mobile network can be blacklisted when it’s lost or stolen. All such devices have a unique identification code (IMEI) that allows the networks to identify them (when SIM-enabled and powered on) and if necessary, permanently disable them.
A blackilisted device cannot be returned to you. It has no value and therefore you will receive no payment. If the device cannot be removed from the register we MUST destroy the device.
How Do I know My Data Will Be Securely Deleted?
We take the deletion of all data very seriously.
To securely remove all data from any device received, we use MobiWIPE® HD. This industry leading service provides Adisa Certified Data Erasure for all types of data storage devices – especially mobile phone and laptop data storage. The software has a Common Criteria EAL3+ certified data erasure solution applicable to all types of data storage device.
