SmartphoneTradeIn.com provides an online website for consumers, businesses, and organizations (hereinafter “SELLER”) to sell their retired cell phones, smartphones, iPads, and iPods (hereinafter “PRODUCT”). The use of SmartphoneTradeIn.com is governed by the terms and conditions set forth in this User Agreement (hereinafter “AGREEMENT”). Your use of this site and/or placement of a transaction indicates your acceptance of the terms and conditions set forth in this AGREEMENT.
ELIGIBILITY TO CONTRACT
SmartphoneTradeIn.com is only available to SELLER(s) who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law.
SELLER must be the sole and rightful owner of the PRODUCT, and all PRODUCT must be free of any liens and/or claims by any third party. If PRODUCT is determined to be lost or stolen, SELLER will not receive any compensation for the PRODUCT. SELLER agrees to transfer all title and interest in the PRODUCT to SmartphoneTradeIn.com upon the receipt of PRODUCT at the SmartphoneTradeIn.com / GRC Wireless, Inc. facility in Hollywood, Florida.
The final trade-in value SELLER shall receive (hereinafter “TRADE-IN VALUE”) is a factor of PRODUCT condition at the time of receipt and inspection by SmartphoneTradeIn.com.
To receive “full price” TRADE-IN VALUE, PRODUCT must be in good or excellent condition, with normal signs of wear. PRODUCT must power up & make a test call, have no water damage, have a functioning LCD screen, unbroken housing, a valid ESN, and an attached battery. Once PRODUCT is designated for “full price” (with forthcoming payment), PRODUCT will not be returned to SELLER.
If PRODUCT does not meet the requirements for “full price”, PRODUCT will be graded as “DAMAGED”, and the lower “damaged” TRADE-IN VALUE applies. SmartphoneTradeIn.com, at its own discretion, may offer elevated DAMAGED pricing for product that passes functional testing but has more significant cosmetic damaged (beyond normal wear and tear).
If PRODUCT does not meet the requirement of “full price”, SmartphoneTradeIn.com will contact SELLER one (1) time via the email. SELLER may elect to receive to receive the lower TRADE-IN VALUE, or SmartphoneTradeIn.com will return PRODUCT to SELLER at no cost to SELLER, subject to the NON COMPLIANT PRODUCT provision below. SELLER has seven (7) calendar days to respond to email, after which PRODUCT will be processed by SmartphoneTradeIn.com. After this seven (7) calendar day period expires, PRODUCT will not be returned to SELLER.
The TRADE-IN VALUE is guaranteed for 30 calendar days from the date printed on the packing slip. If the PRODUCT is received after the 30 day period, the TRADE-IN VALUE will be revised to the current price (hereinafter “CURRENT PRICE”). If PRODUCT is received after the 30 calendar day period, and the PRODUCT is graded to receive the full CURRENT PRICE, the PRODUCT will not be returned to SELLER.
If PRODUCT is missing a battery or battery back, the TRADE-IN VALUE may be reduced by a specified amount. Any accessories, chargers and/or earpieces included with PRODUCT, will not yield extra value.
NON COMPLIANT PRODUCT
If PRODUCT is received in any of the following conditions:
1) The ESN (Electronic Serial Number) or IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is reported as lost or stolen, or
2) The ESN (Electronic Serial Number) or IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is reported to be on a “payment plan” or carrier installment contract, or

4) Android PRODUCT is received with a Google Lock, or
5) The PRODUCT received is different than the PRODUCT stated on the packing slip,
the TRADE-IN VALUE will be reduced to zero. If SELLER wishes to have product returned, SELLER will be required to pay a $15 RETURN FEE. This fee covers the cost of inbound postage, outbound postage, and processing cost.
