Locked as in tied to one carrier?

Or locked as in you can't access the phone because you don't know the password?

Yes, you can simply sell a locked android phone online in New York.

There are thousands of people that are facing a problem with their locked phones.

I would highly recommend selling your locked phone online as compared to the offline market store.

Before selling your locked phones online, you should consider in mind a few things such as genuine website, online tracking of your phone and versatile payment methods.

Recently, I sold my locked OnePlus 7 Pro online and got a fair price as compared to the offline market.

If you have no idea where to sell a locked phone online then I have some wonderful suggestions for you:

· Recell Cellular

· SellCell

· Flipsy

If it's carrier-locked, you can certainly sell it, but it carries less value as a carrier-unlocked device is more versatile as it has a wider audience looking at it. Also - it's easier for YOU to get it carrier-unlocked than it would be for any purchaser.

Locked to a Google account is a whole other story. If you sell it that way it is technically a brick, the purchaser won't be able to set it up for themselves. Most selling sites won't even allow you to sell one in this condition. Additionally - if you can't properly sign out of the account before selling it, it can be assumed that you're selling a stolen device. Properly resetting the device so that it is not locked to a Google account is simple but often forgotten.
