Cell Phones for Cash

December is the busiest season for cell phone sales: According to mobile research firm M:Metrics, an estimated 12 percent of U.S. consumers will buy new phones during the month.

If you have a collection of old cell phones that are just taking up space in your home, you might consider swapping them for some cash. It might make even more sense if you're an IT manager responsible for acquiring, managing and disposing of mobile devices in your organization.

You won't make much, but companies like Flipswap and Cell For Cash will actually pay you for your old phone, which they then resell. Flipswap offers its service to consumers on its site but also sells its software to wireless distributors like Parrot Cellular and online phone retailer Wirefly. Flipswap's pricing algorithms offer a price for your phones by taking into account your phone's make and model, condition and market demand.
