Why you should trade in your phone and upgrade ?

For a device you will use constantly, for email, texts, web surfing, Facebook posting, tweets, paying for goods online or at a shop, booking an Uber or holiday house, listening to music, watching Tiktok and Sports games, taking all those selfies and sharing them on Instagram, facebook.

According to eMarketer, we'll spend an average of 3 hours and 49 minutes daily on our smartphones this year. An underperformance phone will downgrade your user experience and waste significant daily time. Therefore, trade-in your old phone and upgrading to a new phone is a wise choice.

Nowadays, in addition to the official Trade In replacement program from Apple, Repair Buddy has also teamed up to launch a program for recycling old iPhones for cash. In fact, after an evaluation, the ratio of the rebate from us is even higher the price from Trade-In on the official Apple website.

We pay what your phone really worths, we don't deduct the credit that shouldn't!

It’s good for the environment:
Apart from the parts we give it a new life, we recycle the rest of the phone parts. We pride ourselves on being environmentally friendly; research showing that recycling just one cell phone saves enough energy to power a laptop for 44 hours.
Cell phones and other electronic devices also contain hazardous materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, and brominated flame retardants. If tossed in landfills, these materials can contaminate air, soil, and groundwater.
For every one million cell phones recycled, we can recover 75 pounds of gold, 772 pounds of silver, 33 pounds of palladium, and 35,274 pounds of copper; cell phones also contain tin, zinc, and platinum that can be reused.
