Does anybody save their old iPhone (s) ?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering, I know many people re-sell them and then people buy them used.

Mine is old, and I kept it. It does something strange. It shows "dead battery".. and it's completely useless. Won't work at all, let alone turn on. Then in a couple days, it magically comes back to life, 100% charged.

And I get to text again. 😂 For awhile at least. It's a keeper.

Most of the Apple Products I've owned over the years have all been sold but the difference is mine were still in good working condition. Sometimes, the timing may be right to change devices and I just took those opportunities. That being said, I haven't owned an Iphone since the Iphone X which my brother gave me and I sold it after two years.

Somewhere around here I still have my iPhone 5. I don't honestly know where. When I got my first real cell phone, it was one of those slider phones that had a full keyboard under the main phone face. I specifically wanted that one because I thought it would make texting easier. That wasn't the case. By "real cell phone" that means that my first one was a TracFone. Or "burner cell" as they're typically called now.

Only the shop owners who are mobile phone technicians can buy such kind of iPhone from you. They'll buy the old and unstable device from you and pay you when the feel they can revive the phone or use some of it's items to fix another. 

True - But there are videos on Youtube (reliable ones) that can show you how to replace certain components. The advantage they have is they possess the tools to both diagnose and repair or remove the good parts to sell/use.

I understand your point bro, but when you don't have the technicality, you'll find it difficult to implement those steps learned watching YouTube tutorial video for that part. To make it easy, take it to a phone technician that needs such kind of electronic, and sell to the dealer and recoup some money.
