    Selling My Pearl......Have Some Questions

    Advertisement



    I am selling a NEW pearl, (my old one broke, and I am selling the replacement.) I have the original box, all the manuals, a wired headset, the BRAND NEW (never powered on, still has screen cover) pearl, the battery, the charger, a USB cable, and a 1gb MicroSD memory card. What do you think I should try to sell it for?
    PS. Mods, if this is in the wrong section, please move it!
    Thanks!

    I can't give you the exact amount...when I sell a handset I usually scout ebay to see what they are going for. Well, that is if you are planning to use ebay. If this phone you are selling is a replacement like you say it is most likely a refurb. I always mention that it is a brand new refurb that has never been used. But that is up to you to decide.

    Yea, good point, I didnt think of that. Ebay looks like about 225-ish... Do you guys think I could get that?
    Thanks!

    Well it always helps if you have extras to go with it. I always have a case, car charger or some such thing....it sets you apart from others. Make sure the others selling aren't selling unlocked versions for the price you quoted. That always pulls a better price. Give it a shot. I always put a buy it now in there too for the impulse buyers. Set the price for the buy it now a little higher than you would normally ask. Hey there is a price to pay for instant gratification.....right?

    P.S...power it on once to make sure it works. You wouldn't want to sell a DOA handset.

    Yea, these were locked ones without memory cards....so I started mine at $200....does that sound fair..oh and I did power it on once...that was a good idea, all worked well however...

    I think it sounds fair. I got my pearl for 50 bucks but I signed my life away...lol. And the way I look at it is...if somebody buys it it was fair.

    I'm sure you wont have a problem selling it. Just be honest and true. Good pics always help too.

    Yep, I got some great pics, and I described it exactly as it is. I have a feeling all will go well

    And make sure you make insurance mandatory. With phones of that value insurance is important.
