Advice needed:Resell value of SIM Unlocked mobile phones

I have two older Nokias I no longer need, and I have no idea what to sell them for. Looking on Ricardo the prices are all over the place.

One is a Nokia 2760, just over 2 years old, the other is older, it's a Nokia 6131 but it has a data cable and earpiece.

I also have a Swisscom Natel easy SIM card that I could sell (I have the paperwork to transfer it over to someone else's name).

I was using these phones as spares for clients but now everyone seems to buy something right away or already has one so there is really no need for me to hang onto them.

Any ideas about prices. Since I have to put a fixed price if I sell them here, I wanted to be fair.

Thanks in advance for the input.

I thought so too until I looked on Ricardo.
The Nokia 6131, it's on auction and the highest bid is 33.00 chf.

Re: Advice needed:Resell value of SIM Unlocked mobile phones

The problem you face is that you can pick up brand new phones with a far better specification for practically next to nothing these days. Admittedly they probably won't be unlocked, but that generally isn't an issue for average Joe Punter.

I'd say that between 20 and 30 francs each would be a fair price, assuming you can get a buyer. Sorry but these phones just old technology now, and judging by the specs they were low end even when they were brand new

I sold an old phone I had for 10 CHF and counted myself lucky! (not the Iphone though, a simple Nokia)

Re: Advice needed:Resell value of SIM Unlocked mobile phones

Many, especially older people, will want phones that are simpler to use with easy to push buttons. I'd say you could get up to 50chfs if you target the right people. I paid 250 quid for an ultra low tech phone for my ancient grandmother because it's "accessible" - has huge typeface and keys etc.
