With our Subscribe and Save feature, you can watch items you’re interested in, and we’ll automatically email you when a new listing meets your criteria.

Use our free IMEI Checker -- check if a device is lost or stolen
IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity and is a unique 15 or 16-digit number used to identify individual mobile devices. Devices on Swappa are checked against a database of blocklisted devices to confirm it's not lost or stolen. Run an IMEI check from within the app to start your selling process.

The app used to be awesome. You could browse through devices by filtering manufacture, device type, carrier, etc. They have since updated and removed all of that. Now all you get is an unorganized list of phones or tablets with no way to sort or filter. You can't list devices to sell either. It's a shame as I've purchase devices through the app before and it worked great. Not worth downloading anymore.

Frustration... The app per se is useless. It basically let you sign-in and sign-out. Everything really happens in their website. The app doesn't have editing tools for listings, mistakes are common, but once you made them, there's no way to fix things in an intuitive way, The posts are revised before publication. Then you receive an email with the actual rules, pointing your mistakes and LINKS to webpages for you to fix them and once there the edit option does not edit everything. It's a mess.

Like many others, the 2.x version of the app is unstable and buggy. Often I can't even click the icon to launch and most of the time when it does launch, it just shows a blank white screen with a green header. The listings for devices are either incomplete, mis-categorized, or inaccurate. I realize the intention was good, but the execution has made the user experience terrible.
