Chances are, you have your eyes on a new smartphone. The iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, Motorola Moto x, or Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has your attention. But to make way for the new phone, you need to get rid of your old phone.

I'm going to tell you how to make the most money when selling your old phone, even if the screen is broken or doesn't work.

Before you do anything ...

It's best not to sell your phone until you already have the new smartphone. Preparing a phone for sale means you won't be able to use it, and you don't want to be without a smartphone.

Plus, if it turns out you don't like your new one - or it has a defect - you'll want a backup.

If you're still trying to figure out what new phone to buy, you might want to look at my smartphone comparison chart or read through my buying guide.
