    I went to this garage sale, it turned out the guy was an ex cell phone dealer. So I so a display case full of pre-smartphone phones. Blackberrys, nokias...

    Im not sure if they work because they dont have the chargers. ANy ideas how much I can sell these phones for like on eBay or something. I have roughly 60 of the phones.

    Thanks for any ideas...

    Oh yeah I also got a Hp Office Jet 6210 All in One for five bucks working WOO!

    The only way you'll know is to research the phones. Since you didn't provide specific models, why not go to eBay and see what they are going for? That should give you a pretty good idea. Go to search>advanced search> and make sure to click completed auctions and then type in your search specs.

    We would need more information about the phones. What type model phones are they? Considering that they are "pre-smartphone", they will probably be less than $40-50 each, simply because everyone wants the high end phones nowadays.

    Well I suggest you get a charger for each of the phone, if they are a variety of different phones you may need a lot of chargers. Although that may be pricey so I don't blame you if you don't want to. Check out CL or old electronic stores for cheap/free chargers.

    Some models use the same charger. If you charge up the phones and they happen to work you can get a good amount of cash on eGay. If you don't want to charge them up sell them as "broken of for parts" in the listing description state you are not sure if they work, they may or may not. People may bid a little higher, but not as high if you had a charger and knew if they worked or not.

    If they happen to work, or some do some dont state that in the description and sell as wholesale you will get at least a couple hundred if they are decent phones.
