I think I wrote about this once before, but I was recently thinking about it again. Why? Because I was cleaning and found 3 old phones that I am no longer using. What do I do with them? I have given phones to friends before. My mom has my old Palm Treo 680, and yes… it is too much phone for her. LOL! I have even considered turning them into MP3 players for my girls.
Well we are told to recycle everything these days and services are setup to make it easy for us. There are camera trade-in programs, printer recycling programs, old computer recycling, and of course cell phone recycling. If you are not using these items, you can recycle them. Or, you can sell your old mobile! And guess what??? You get money for them instead of nothing. Now all phones are not worth a lot obviously, but getting something is better than letting the phone rot in the bottom of your dresser drawer.
And throwing them in the trash is certainly not the right thing to do. It’s not good for the environment. Those little batteries contain chemicals that need to be disposed of properly. We have little bins at my job that allow us to drop old batteries in them for recycling. Where do they go then? I don’t know. The battery fairy takes them away and keeps us safe. 🙂
SellYourOldMobile.Info contains great information detailing for you the right steps to take when deciding to sell your old phone online. You can use the tool to choose your phone and get a quick quote for how much you can likely fetch for you phone. I used it and was able to find out that I might get $199 for my old iPhone 3G. Hmm…. Really? I might have to check into that a bit more. Sounds high.
Give it a try and see what it says about your old phones.

Found your site on the site who’s template you used for WP in the showcase area. Looked neat so thought I’d check it out.
Anyhow……I’ve always found Craigslist to be the best. If you are in a larger metro area of at least 300,000 + its very very easy. There is always someone who will buy that old blackberry or whatever you have. Likewise, people have tech ADD in larger cities and consider their’s old often after 4 months. So when you need a new one for yourself, consider simply buying one that’s a few months old and help the environment even more by not contributing to the production of yet another brand new tech product. A small but simple thing to do and doesnt take much thought!
