Phone trade in made easy with Best Buy Mobile store - review

Occasionally I work with companies to provide my opinions and experiences.

I have a confession. I am obsessed, dare say addicted, to my phone. I'm not talking about the cute case, I mean the technology, usefulness, the fun of a smart phone. When there is a new program, app or design, I know that it will improve my world. I want the latest and greatest - wouldn't you?  But the thought of spending hours, endless paperwork and the out lay of cash for that new nugget of greatness negates my desire to upgrade. Best Buy Mobile has erased the downside and brought back the sparkle.

The Best Buy Mobile stores make trading in an old phone for a new one, simple, fast and definitely worth the money.  In our area, the Best Buy Mobile store is located in the mall. Since we are starting back to school clothes shopping, a quick trip into the store was convenient. To find a store near you, please visit

After placating the kids with a drink, we stopped into the store to see the value of our old iphone 4. Since I try to keep my phones in good shape, I hoped that I would get a decent amount of money to put towards an upgrade. According to the trade-in calculator, my phone would be worth $100 in a Best Buy gift card - jackpot. The new iphone 5 that I wanted was $199.

Knowing that I haven't upgraded my phone in a little while, I was fairly certain that I was eligible for an upgrade. The friendly staff took my cell phone number and confirmed that I could upgrade phones on my AT&T account.

The process to upgrade phones was really simple. From signing paperwork to transferring contacts the process was done before the kids finished their drinks. The only thing that was time consuming was picking out my new OtterBox case (couldn't decide on the perfect cover).

They can set up and activate your new phone, transfer your contacts and data and set you up with the complimentary Walk Out Working™ program. Basically, when you walk out of the store, your new phone is ready to go. No one has time to spend hours re-doing a new phone.

 The Best Buy Mobile stores are conveniently located strip malls, shopping malls and other neighborhood shopping centers.

Stop living with an outdated device. Head to your local Best Buy Mobile store to upgrade today.
