Usually a phone needs to be in working condition to have trade in value.

Unless it's a promo Koodo doesn't have general trade ins. A dead motherboard / "just blue screens" both count as not in workijg order and are not good for trade in at all. It'll just be recycled.

They do, actually. The phone must still be in working order though.

Interesting. I thought that Koodo ended it. Thanks for the correction.

You could always try and sell it for parts to some cellular repair shop

Wouldn't waste much time on trying to sell it. Can buy all the working LG G3 unlocked you want for $65 US on eBay with a 30-day warranty. The motherboard is currently offered for about $90, so the trade-in value of your phone is about minus $25 US, assuming you can get someone to do the install for free.
