E-WasteThe Mobile Base


The Mobile Base aims to be your ideal spot to be able to pick up a smartphone for far less than brand new pricing with the carriers. With new phones being released all the time and prices going higher and higher, it’s difficult to keep up with the latest while making sure your wallet isn’t emptied out. If you’re looking to remain flexible with your carrier and don’t want to lock into a long contract with them or go through additional monthly payments with a tab, you’ll have to purchase a device outright which can cost thousands! That’s where we aim to help out with our selection of fully-tested devices. Buying a used cell phone means you’re able to get an upgrade on your current phone without breaking the bank, or you’re able to get the exact phone you want without being limited by the devices that the carriers are offering.

The process of switching into a different cell phone is as easy as ever. All you need to do is put your SIM card in from your current phone into your new device, and you’re set! You’re ready to start using your next device pretty much right away. 

All of the phones we have on our website are fully tested for functionality to make sure that your device will have no issues once you receive it. From testing the cameras and speaker to making a test phone call, we cover everything that you normally would use on your smartphone. This way, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’ll have a seamless experience without spending far more than you need to. Our used phones are also priced at rates that are far more reasonable than what you may find yourself paying with the carriers for a brand new device, while still being a device that’s new to you!


There are a number of reasons that a used phone is a better alternative to purchasing brand new. For one, the cost savings that you’ll find by opting out of buying a new device can be significant, especially if you don’t need the absolute latest model. Given some of the latest high-end models are seeing prices over $2000 for some variants, the cost savings by going even a couple of generations back can be significant. For most people’s use, going a few years back on a device will still get the job done when it comes to speed, camera quality, and everything else that’s important in a smartphone. You’ll also ensure that you’re not stuck paying an extra monthly fee to pay for a new phone for years as well. With carriers offering cheaper rates for bringing your own device, a used phone is a great way to reduce your monthly phone bill!

Secondhand devices still have a useful life ahead of them, and by choosing to purchase a used device, you’re choosing to make an environmentally-conscious choice by ensuring that every device can be used to its full potential. The alternative of recycling or having a device end up in a landfill is far less than ideal, given a phone still may be able to work just as well as it was able to when it was first bought. 

You’ll also be able to choose from a wider variety of used devices than you normally would be able to with the offerings of the carriers. If you don’t need a phone with 4 cameras on it, or the only phones that are available in stores are those that are too big to use with one hand, opting for a used device that fits exactly what you’re looking for may be the right choice to make.
