Comparing prices for your mobile phone has potentially gained you an extra £122 cash and by recycling your Apple iPhone 7 Plus you're also doing your bit for the environment!
To the right we list our Top Recommended Deal and below that we show all the mobile phone recyclers who will pay you to recycle your old Apple mobile phone.
To sell our phone on Compare and Recycle, you simply need to choose between one of the many different recyclers that are keen to buy your iPhone 7 Plus. Each of these companies are offering a different price, so this will probably inform your decision of which company to go for. There are two options to give your phone to the recycling company, firstly, you can send your phone yourself in your own packaging, or secondly the recycler can send you a package for you to give your phone to them. The recycler will assess the condition of your device to determine the device's quality which corresponds with how much money you will receive for it. To get your money, you have a choice of either PayPal, a bank transfer or a cheque.
Like most other devices, it is advisable to put your iPhone 7 Plus on the market sooner rather than later if you want to sell it soon. iPhones traditionally hold their price better than Android phones, and as such you can recoup a good chunk of value when you upgrade your phone, and the iPhone 7 Plus is no exception. However, there are certain times each year that are ideal for selling your device as you will get more money for it. This includes just before the Christmas season and two or so months prior to the release of a new Apple product.
The iPhone 7 Plus was released in 2016 along with the iPhone 7. It comes with three different capacity options: 32GB, 128GB and 256GB. The price that you will receive for your iPhone 7 Plus is partially dependant on what the capacity of your phone is, with higher capacity models holding their value for longer. The other determinant for the price is the condition of your device. If your phone has been well looked after and has minimal damage, you should get a good price for it.
The recycling process is different for each recycler, but usually the recycling process involves your device getting refurbished first. Phones which are past the point of a refurbishment will be given to a recycling facility in which the valuable parts of the phone will be taken out and resold.
Your device may be a complete wreck, but do not allow this to deter you from trying to sell it. Some recyclers will be able to give your device a makeover to resell it as a refurbished second-hand smartphone. At the top of the page, select 'broken' to describe the state of your phone. There is an array of issues that your device could have, including a broken screen, scratches, unusable buttons and not being able to charge. If your phone has been subjected to water damage, then we advise that you either contact your recycler directly or read their T&Cs to find out their rules.
