Find out how much your device is worth
The value of a device decreases over time, so estimates change frequently. The trade-in amount will depend on the condition of your device, including whether:
- the device powers on
- the keypad and/or touchscreen are functional
- the screen and/or body are cracked
- there are signs of liquid damage
- the battery and battery cover are included
Prepare your phone for trade‑in
- Back up any personal data that you want to keep, such as contacts, emails, documents, pictures, videos and music. The phone cannot be returned to you after trade-in.
- If applicable, remove the SIM card. If the phone doesn’t have a SIM card, be sure to contact your service provider to deactivate its mobile service.
- If applicable, remove any memory cards.
- Delete all personal data by resetting the phone to the factory default settings. If you’re not sure how to do this, a Bell representative can help you reset your phone in-store.
- Ensure the battery is charged so that we can evaluate the phone’s trade-in value.
