It all started with the big bang. Soon after, people started to exist and the only currency was traded goods. I thought I could apply that same idea to smartphones. I built up a good reputation in Montreal by trading smartphones for money and vice-versa. My process involved buying used phones, testing them to make sure they were fully functional, keeping them in stock for a few weeks to make sure they wouldn’t get blacklisted and finally selling them.
The more I got into it, the more scammers I had the “pleasure” of dealing with. I quickly realized that the number of ripoffs was, and still is, too high in this market. As a result, I learned how to thoroughly inspect phones before buying them, how to get better deals and sell more phones.
Therefore, I felt that it is my duty to dominate this market in order to save people from cell phone scams and make it easier to buy and sell used phones. I then pitched the idea to my friend, Patrick, and he was as excited as I was. He shared the same vision of cleaning up the market.
Both originating from Lebanon, we graduated from university in 2015 as mechanical engineers. Striving to provide the best solution and service to clients who are looking to buy or sell smartphones safely and hassle-free.
We decided to create Phone Hook-Ups, a phone trading platform. Whether you are here to buy or sell a phone, our goal is to make you feel like you’re doing business with family. That’s right, we do not just talk the talk, we walk the walk!
