Broken Smart Phones: Will a Phoenix Pawn Shop Buy Them?

If you haven’t dropped your cell phone in water, chances are good that you’ve at least cracked the screen. These two fates seem to befall nearly every cell phone at some point. The damage might be the reason you upgraded, or the phone might have been damaged when you gave it to your child as a play phone after you were done with it.

When you need a little extra cash and you look around your house for things to sell or pawn, you might stumble upon this broken phone and wonder how much you can get out of it. Some Phoenix pawn shops will offer you some money for a smart phone with a broken screen, but most won’t. Here’s what you need to know:

Value of Phone vs. Cost of Repair

Replacing the screen on a smart phone can cost a lot of money. However, if the cost of the repair is less than the value of the phone, you may still be able to get a few dollars from the phone. Realize that the pawn shop will have to pay to repair the phone before it can sell it, and the cost it pays you for the phone but what it pays for the repair have to add up to less than what it can sell the phone for to customers.

Generally speaking, whether you can sell a phone with a broken screen depends on the model of the phone and its overall condition. If it’s a newer model that it’s in high demand, chances are good that its value is high enough to offset the cost of a screen repair.

Repairing the Screen Yourself

Electronics | Pawn Now

Pawn shops will give you a pawn loan for most electronic items. If you can’t sell your phone, you can pawn it. If the pawn shop will make the loan for more than the cost of a screen repair, you should consider getting the loan and repairing the phone yourself. You can then turn around and sell the phone for a higher price once it has been repaired. You won’t make a lot of money, but you’ll have more than you did before when all you had was a broken phone.

Sell It on Ebay

You can sell a smart phone with or without a broken screen on ebay. You may use the pawn loan to repair the screen and then sell the phone on ebay, or you may decide to just sell it straight out with the broken screen. Just make sure that you are honest about the condition, or you may get into trouble with the site. Again, you won’t get a lot of money if you sell the phone while it is broken, but you will get more than you had before.
