How to Sell My PDA
Consider selling your PDA if you are replacing it with a new model. (sot/Digital Vision/Getty Images)

If you are replacing your PDA (personal digital assistant), you should consider selling it to earn extra cash. Throwing the item away can be hazardous to the environment because of the battery, according to Mother Earth News, which indicates that the toxins from the batteries can leak into soil and water. If you do not need a backup to your new PDA or do not plan to donate it to a friend or family member, selling it is an easy and ideal option. There are a few guidelines you should follow to ensure that your used PDA is ready to sell and maximise the amount of money that you can earn.

  1. 1

    Remove all personal and private information that you have stored in your phone. Although it may take time to delete all contacts, documents and information, it is crucial to your privacy that you expunge all information from the PDA. Do not delete applications and information that initially came loaded on the device.

  2. 2

    Gently cleanse the device to remove any debris that built up from loose skin cells, make up and skin products. You want the PDA to be as close to the "factory settings" as possible.

  3. 3

    Take note of any damages or problems with the device. It is imperative that you divulge this information to prospective buyers and reduce the price accordingly, especially if the damage is significant.

  4. 4

    Gather all items associated with the device, such as instruction manual, charging cord, warranty and original box (if possible). If you have a case or additional accessories, you can include these and increase the selling price, or try to sell them separately. The more complete and professional the package of materials, the more appealing it will be to potential buyers.

  5. 5

    Photograph the PDA from different angles to use in advertisements posted online and on flyers. You also should photograph the accessories and items associated with the PDA to illustrate what exactly is for sale.

  6. 6

    Utilise free web sites, such as eBay and Craigslist, to create postings to sell your PDA. You can show images as well as write a description or review of the device to make it more appealing. You also can utilise notice boards or other forums to sell your device.
