Need money for an old phone? Local stores and kiosks are the safest bet, but not necessarily the most profitable

The online device valuer Flipsy.com has released the results of a new study on the best way to sell a phone in 2019.

However, other "buyback" options such as online stores were found to be the most convenient, although the seller might sacrifice the best deal this way.
