Questions about selling a broken iPhone


Why sell my faulty iPhone with Tech Octopus?


There's many reasons why selling your faulty iPhone with Tech Octopus is the right choice:

  • You can make some extra cash by clearing out your cupboards and drawers of those mobiles.
  • You'll be helping the environment by stopping non-working devices from being thrown away.
  • We offer free shipping, so it won't cost you a penny to get rid of those damaged devices.

How much can I get for my broken iPhone?


It's obvious that you won't get the same value for a broken iPhone than you would a working or new iPhone. That doesn't mean that you can't still get a competitive price for a phone that has issues or problems. 

We aim to offer a market-leading price that is guaranteed for 14 days, so if you sell today your price is locked and won't drop.

When will I be paid when I sell my damaged iPhone?


Once we receive your broken iPhone, we'll put this through our diagnostic software to identify any software or hardware problems.

We'll also carry out a conditional check to look for any cosmetic problems such as cracks, scuffs, blemishes and dents.

If your device powers on and doesn't have any major issues such as water damage or the device is locked to iCloud, then we'll pay you on the same day. If there's anything we need to flag with you, you'll receive an email and SMS for you to make a decision on what you'd like to do.
