Want to upgrade to the new iPhone 4S? Want to switch from one type of phone to another? Want to sell your phone, iPod or laptop for extra cash? Trading-in devices like these to NextWorth is easy, but there are a few things than can make your experience run smoothly. Today we're giving you part one in a series about how to prepare your gadgets for trade -in. Today's tip: Be honest with your assessment While it's human nature to think that your device is not flawed, just well used, the next owner may not agree. That's why trade-incompanies (us included) have rigorous testing processes for gadgets we recieve. This allows us to confirm that the rating you gave your device is fair and accurate. The best way to avoid disappointment is to be honest and unbiased when assessing your device. Less than 1% of the trades we receive are actually in "perfect" condition. Because of that, we went so far as to remove that category from our site. The promise of big bucks for perfect condition devices often sets you up for a big disappointment. This way, you're more likely to get your quoted price. Keep this in mind when you go to trade-in for your next device. Stay tuned next week for the second part of our series! What tips do you have for ensuring an honest assessment?
