According to the Consumer Technology Association, smartphones are among the top requested tech gifts by adults this holiday season. With that in mind, ecoATM Gazelle has prepared the following checklist to guide consumers who are setting up a new phone over the holidays.
Backup data from your old phone to keep all your contacts, photos, music, videos and information in one secure place. This will ensure that data can be easily transferred to your new phone.
Depending on whether you’re upgrading to a new Android, iPhone, or changing operating systems, the steps for transferring your data will be slightly different. This helpful article from Reviewed.com walks through the process.
Once you’ve safely transferred your data, make sure you wipe your personal information from your old device. Use the factory reset and remove your SIM or SD cards.
Ensure your new phone stays in great condition by getting a case and screen protector.
Now that you’ve set up your new device, it’s time to get rid of your old one. Trade in your device by using one of two convenient options – Gazelle.com or an ecoATM kiosk. The cash you earn could make a dent in those holiday credit card bills!
