Boost Mobile Buyback Program

Program Overview

The average American replaces his or her mobile phone every 16 months. That's millions of unused mobile phones that have outlived their purpose. Odds are that you have an unused mobile phone sitting around in a sock drawer or stacked away in a box right now.

But don't throw that old mobile phone in the trash -- electronics aren't environmentally friendly when they biodegrade and they even contain undesirable chemicals that could seep into landfills and pollute our environment! Instead, put your old mobile devices to better use.

The Boost Mobile Buyback Program provides an incentive for eligible wireless devices. While all phones may not qualify for an incentive, remember you helped the environment by recycling.

Trade in your wireless device in 3 Easy Steps!

Step 1: Get an instant quote for your mobile phone or wireless device.
Step 2: Return your old phone with the prepaid shipping label provided.
Step 3: Receive your Boost account credit within 90 days from the time we receive your device.

The Boost Mobile Buyback Program gives you two options when trading in your old phone.

  1. Receive an account credit for eligible devices.
  2. Recycle devices with Project Connect.


Feels good, right? Remember, your trade-in also helps to prevent wireless equipment from entering the waste stream and protects the environment. The Boost Mobile Buyback Program uses electronics recycling vendors that are certified to industry leading used electronic management certifications, ensuring the most environmentally conscious methods of electronic waste disposal possible.

Free Shipping and Postage
We take care of the postage! Once you have accepted the credit offered for your phone, simply print out the prepaid shipping label and attach it to the outside of your package. All postage will be paid for by the Boost Mobile Buyback Program.
