    One word... "Lugi"...

    One would still be better off selling his/her old iPhone and buy a new one.

    I asked once, years ago... never thought of doing it again. It'll set you back for at least 10K (assuming we're talking about a previous / one generation old iPhone).

    Why dont you see for yourself? - get an offer from Switch, then try bargaining your old phone at Greenhills... or check out sites like TipidCP.com, OLX and the likes... and see how much is the current value of your phone compared to what was offered to you by Switch.

    No one in his / her right mind goes the trade-in route... I mean it's just so impractical.

    If you have time, best way to get the most money out of your old iPhone is to sell it directly (fb, olx etc.)

    If you're in a rush might as well trade it in in greenhills,

    My last resort would be trading it in in Switch but i'll do that with a blindfold on :ROFLMAO:

    So finally got the chance to brong my old iPhone 6s Plus to Switch earlier today. We had it checked for trade-in value. The phone is working great as it is but it does have some damage (very little dent on top, scratches on screen, though not that visible...).

    Initially they said the amount ranges from 11800 to 8000 but still depends on overall condition.

    When they finished the diagnostic, to our surprise the trade in value they said is:

    Php 400!

    Like what now? Even an old Nokia would sell far more higher than that. The reason they quoted is because it’s Globe locked plus the minor damages.

    It’s just so laughable and total waste of time. Everyone here is right. This is not worth it all :LOL:

    watda! 2 weeks back I got wife a red 128GB iPhone Xr in greenhills. sold our globe locked iPhone 6 64GB for 6.5k and iPhone 7 128GB for 13.5k in one of the kiosks. apparently, it doesn't matter to them if you have it unlocked first (doesn't increase trade in / re-sale value). basically spent PhP26.5k for a bnew iPhone.

    i know i could have tried selling (online, etc.) the old iPhones for more but thing is, in Greenhills, I was in and out in 1 hour.
