Evaluation Process

The electronics are evaluated via multiple steps. The first is making sure that the model you have selected is accurate compared to the device delivered. We assess the physical condition of the item(s) to see if the category you selected matches its description. We look for scratches, dents, etc. We also look to see if the item(s) is real or counterfeit, as well as if there was any tampering to the device. Your item(s) is then checked for water damage and the battery life is also tested. Lastly, we look to make sure that all passwords are removed so we can reset the phone and wipe out all personal information. If your assessment was accurate, we will send you the money in the method selected. If not, we will offer you a new price, which you can accept, or ask for your item(s) back. Rest assured, at MOBILEXPHONE, we will always give you the most value for your item.

We do not need your SIM card in order to evaluate your item. Please remove your SIM card prior to sending us the phone. If you forget, don’t worry, we will dispose of your SIM card during our evaluation of your phone.

A phone that is “unlocked” is one that is not associated to a carrier. As we do offer more money for phones that are “unlocked”, you can ask your carrier to unlock your phone for you and then submit it as an “unlocked” phone. You would have to reach out to your carrier to see if they can unlock the phone for you.

In the event that you do not agree with the evaluation of your phone, you can ask for a reinspection where a fresh pair of eyes will evaluate your phone and see if they agree with the evaluation that was done already or if they can increase the offer amount.


We currently offer five methods of payment – Cash App, Apple Pay, Zelle and
Venmo. You’ll be asked to indicate your preference when you come to the store.

Tips to assess the condition of your device

Before assessing the condition of your device, we highly recommend the following:
  1. Remove the device from its cover and remove any screen protectors from the screen. We’ve had many instances where the cover and screen protector have left behind permanent marks on devices.
  2. Use a flashlight or put the device under a bright light to check for scratches on the screen.
  3. Visually inspect the device for any bends in the frame or any screen separation as this is a commonly overlooked issue.
  4. Check to see if any water damage indicators have been triggered. Click here for more information.
