Our offer when you contact us does not change as long as your phone is in the condition your told us over the phone. 

However, if your device is not as described, we will have to reappraise your device. 

If your phone is dead when you meet with us, we will have to appraise the phone as a dead, no power phone which will leave a lot of money out of the table for you.

2. Back up your data

We recommend you do this before you meet with us to ensure we are done fast ad you can get paid quicker

3. Remove all passcodes

If you have any pass-codes or screen locks, remove them. Usually there is a hidden lock you have installed and forgotten about that will be shown when the phone is restored.

4. For Apple products, Make sure "Find My iPhone / iPad" is off

Turn “Find my iPhone” off and log out of your iCloud account. Find my iPhone (FMI) is a security feature installed on apple products to help their owners find their phone when it is lost.
