    You can sell unlocked phones (it's welcomed). When you create a listing for a device you can mark that it is unlocked and describe any mods.

    Do you have devices that aren't on the site? If so, let me know and I'll add them.

    When viewing pictures, instead of opening in a new tab, open some kind of picture view thing like what Facebook does. We should be able to use the arrow keys to navigate and Esc to close it. Right now it's kind of inconvenient to close a tab every picture.

    The front page looks a little dated (mostly old phones), but the concept is nice, with the "buy" and "sell" buttons by each device.

    Looks like a good alternative to eBay, etc.

    Swappa is great, I've sold around 10 devices on there. Everything is smooth and Ben is a really cool guy.

    The homepage is determined by how many of a device there is, the Nexus One is first because there are more of them than any other device for sale, and so on. :)

    If you can belive it, most carriers have an area to recycle used phones, and lo and behold, they also sell refurbished phone's. Wonder where they get them. Atleast if you buy from ebay, or craig's list you get the ability to help someone, make a little back when they put out the big dollars for a new phone. I'm not talking about businesses but the average Joe or Jane.

    Recommend you to spread your sites to some android forums, like slatedroid, androidtablets, pandawillforum, xda-developers. I saw some members look for second-hand tablets there.

    Hey, I like the site, just wanted to buy a phone for virgin mobile, but their phones aren't the best. Can I flash another phone to virgin mobile? Would this be the unlocked phones talked about? Thanks.

    I would buy and/or sell a used Android device. In fact, I recently purchased 3 used HTC EVO 4G phones.

    I first purchased an HTC EVO from craigslist and immediately thereafter, I purchased one for a relative on eBay. These were Sprint HTC EVOs and my plan was to have them both flashed to the Boost Mobile Network. However, on the same day after I purchased one of the phones, I saw an HTC EVO on craigslist that was newly new that had already been flashed to Boost, so I purchased that phone also.

    I will sell one of the two unflashed EVOs.
