If that’s not an option, some sites (including Gazelle) give you a grace period of up 30 days before you send in your phone,” Purewal and Broida report. “You’ll get the most money for your phone if it’s in tip-top shape, but you’ll still do well if it’s in ‘good’ condition: No cracks in the screen, no big dents or scratches in the casing, no water damage and everything is working well (the phone turns on and holds a charge).”
