    Old Cell Phone Accessories

    I know this may be a strech but does anyone know of anyone or anywhere that would buy or even want old cell phone accessories. I got all the leftover stuff from a local computer/cellphone store that closed a few years ago this weeked when the old owner decided he was tired of holding on to all the stuff that was now outdated. There were of course all sorts of printers coppiers monitors ect. but i had to take all that was there including cell phone stuff. I have several boxes on new 110Volt and car chargers, cases, holsters, and about anything else you could want for a cellphone from around 2006 or older. I dont want to throw all the cases and covers away and was hoping someone on here had run into this before and found someone who would want that stuff

    Maybe break them up in lots and sell them on Ebay. You'd be forever doing onesies, twosies.

    I have tried to sell cell phone accessories on ebay and craigs list. I don't think it pays. Takes to **** long to really make any money. If there old I usually don't fool with it. I have a 100 or so clips I MIGHT put on in one lot sometime. But the chargers I just scrap.

    If they still have bar codes I had a lot of sucess on Amazon. Even selling at $0.01 the prices Amazon charges the buyer, then pays you to ship, you'll make a dollar or two per item. When I got burn out and tired of shipping them out I took the rest to a local auction house and sold them as a whole lot for like $20. I made my $$ and then liquidated

    I got some older cell phone's at a pick-up this morning and been doing a little research on 'em.
    trying to get into the habit of looking up everything I get that's older or unusual, think it'll pay off looking things up
    during my queit times and I can quickly decide whether to keep it, sell it or scrap it.

    got this Motorola 9660 brick mobile, in box with everything in place and two old nokia NHE-5NA mobiles were in the box too.
    my research shows the 9660 is the last of the bricks, it doesn't look like it's been used much, will be keeping this for now.




    Aswell as the brick in box, there was this Motorola bag with a car phone, the bag holds a battery to use as a carry phone.
    the white box above it has a lead acid battery charger, it's very unusual and i'm real happy it come with it.

    I read that those 'bricks' are worth good money now.

    Googled

    This is a english website that are selling the bricks for up to US$400. At the moment they are out of stock, so theres a idea..... Uh, oh, their sites down, upgrading.
    RETROBRICK - the home of vintage and rare mobile phones
    --------------

    From 59 to 129 English pounds inc postage, US$80 - US$200? Vintage Mobile Phones - Motorola Brick Phones
    -----------------

    Ebay, they want US$20 & up >Brick Phone | eBay
    ----------------
    They are retrofitting new cellphones into those bricks now>Vintage Mobile Phones - Modern Phones
    A idea I had years ago & so I stripped out one & found theres so much space inside it I could use it as a small bag to keep things in, like a cellphone, toothbrush etc..

    WOW I remember those bavk in the day when I worked for airtouch before verizon bought them. Still remember how to program that old bag phone actually lol.

    The olg bag phones have lead acid batteries but the the nokias should have*Nicad ones...so not woth much...but those phones were simple and bulletproof! And easy to fix too.

    The issue is they run on technolofy that has been phased out.

    A lot like that is best listed as a "dealer lot" to attract the attention of people that do flea markets and such.

    Packed 'em up and put them in my stash room.
    yeah I think your on the money parrothead, selling as a lot.
    that's what i'll probably do with most things, build up lots and sell like that.
