Phones, Tablets and Music players: There is no need to send us any chargers, cables, cases, accessories or original packaging, in fact these are discarded immediately upon receipt and cannot be returned. This is industry standard procedure for this category of device.

Device Condition

  • Does the device power on?
    Choose YES if device powers on and stays on when not connected to an external power source. The display must come on when the device is powered on.
  • Is the display fully working and free from discolouration?
    Choose NO if there are any symptoms of LCD burn - pink tint, yellowing along edges, white blotches, dead pixels, grey bars. To check, adjust screen to brightest setting and go to the "reset" screen, open a new "note" or anything that displays a white screen. Check the screen is fully working by navigating and swiping in all areas of the screen.
  • Are there any scratches, cracks or chips on the screen?
    Choose NO if the screen is free of scratches, cracks or chips. If any scratches or chips can be felt with a fingernail, they cannot be polished out and the screen needs replacing. Cracks and chips on the edges and corners of the screen are common. The screen must be properly fitted to the device and not 'lifted'.
  • Are there any scratches, cracks or chips on the casing of the device?
    Choose NO if the casing and bezel are free of any scratches, cracks, chips, dents, bends or other damage that requires the casing or bezel to be replaced. If any scratches or chips can be felt with a fingernail, they cannot be polished out and the casing or bezel will need replacing. Cracks and chips on the edges and corners of the casing or bezel are common.
  • Do all the keys, buttons and functions work as expected?
    Choose NO if any feature or function of the device is damaged or not properly functioning. This may include keys, buttons, Touch ID, cameras, sim card trays, headphone jacks or sockets etc.
  • Is your device locked to any network?
    Choose NO if the device will accept any sim card and work on all cellular networks. Phones from major networks (EE, Vodafone, O2, 3 etc) are usually locked to that network by default. Please contact your network to get your phone unlocked. It is much cheaper for you to do this than it is for us if we receive a network locked phone. Please see our FAQs for more information.

Unlike other sites Zapper do things a little different. We are dedicated to our price promise, ensuring that the price we quote is the price we pay.

Many other sites inflate their offer prices knowing that they will offer you less once the device has been inspected (even if they claim they won’t).

That is where we differ. We don’t want to over promise and under deliver and that is why we require you to accurately complete the condition questions so that the price we promise, is the price we pay.

We use the same industry standard condition grading tests as all of our competitors, the difference being we ask that you notify us of the condition prior to sending us the device, so that we can confidently honour the original offer price.

At Zapper, we’re always looking for the best retro tech we can get our hands on and we buy any good stuff that you have. That’s why we’re so excited to buy your iPhone 3GS 16GB, do you want to know why?

It’s because we’re big techies and the iPhone 3GS 16GB was the first phone to start the Apple vs Android hardware arms race. Inside is the first iPhone to have a ‘system-on-chip’ architecture. That chip features an ARM Cortex A8 that was underclocked to 600MHz down from 833MHz, the ability to underclock the phone and still be so fast is owed to the lightweight nature of iOS (iOS is consistently the most well optimised operating system of any in the market).Underclocking like this also has its benefits in battery life and phone longevity, as we can see now with some iPhone 3GS 16GBs still running like they did out of the box, a reason Zap per will give you even more money for your old phone. The chip also housed the latest GPU from PowerVR, the SGX535. This graphical processing unit powered the 163ppi screen with a 480 x 320 resolution. That’s pretty sharp for a phone of its time and still holds its own against modern-smartphones.

Not only that but with the recent release of the App Store, the updated 3GS needed a lot of RAM to be able to multitask. Apple took note and didn’t just increase the RAM by a bit, they doubled it. The RAM went from 256MB to a whopping 512MB.

So if you’ve got an old iPhone 3GS 16GB that isn’t getting the use it deserves, send it to Zapper today and get quick cash. We’ll also give you free postage when you sell your iPhone 3GS 16GB so don’t worry everything we pay you is profit.
