Whatever the season you are probably always looking for a way to make a bit of easy money. It goes without saying that right now near the end of a recession and near the start of Christmas there is increased need for extra cash. You may even get a brand new mobile phone as a gift and want to quickly sell your old one. So here are a few helpful tips on where to make money selling an old mobile phone.
1. Recycle it
Nothing could be simpler and more ethical. Mobile phone recycling has grown rapidly over the last few years and now recycling companies are crawling over each other to buy old mobiles. The recycling websites let you put in the make or model number which then displays a price. The newer and more expensive the phone, the more they will pay for it. They accept broken and faulty handsets too and once you send in a phone they send a cheque out within a week. Get cash for mobile phones here.
2. Ebay it
A very common way you can get cash for your old phone is to auction it. If you have a phone in top condition with all the parts it could fetch quite a bit. If you have the time and patience it is worth writing a quality title and description for the phone you are selling also adding a good picture. The amount an item will sell for depends on many factors like time of auction, minimum bid, and other auctions selling the same or similar phones and the quality of the description and the item itself. There is some luck involved in getting more money but selling it on to someone is the same as recycling it.
3. Sell it to a friend, contact or family member
If you know someone who wants your old phone you are in luck. Perhaps their old one just packed up and they are desperate for a new one and they used to eye up your phone when you first got it. Ask them, they might want to buy it. You could go round to every single work colleague, causing as little disruption as possible asking if they want to buy your well looked after old phone. Someone might snap it up right away. The problem is people can be unreliable, saying they’ll bring the money in next week and not doing, or changing their mind. Either way it could be quick cash in your pocket if they have the money on them.
4. Give it away
Okay, this wont make you any money, but it will make the world just that slightly bit of a better place. You could give it to a friend in need, a cousin without a mobile, or to anyone who wants it in return for a smile. Nothing pays like kindness. There are many charities with shops in the high-street that will take old mobile handsets to recycle and in turn help people around the world. Make your day, give it away.

Many consumers will agree that since the news was announced that Orange will stock the Apple iPhone the future is indeed looking bright.
Apple’s iPhone 3G and 3GS were released onto Orange on the 10th November this year, ending O2’s exclusivity deal. Any customers on an Orange contract who want to upgrade to this handset can now do so and the phone is also available to new customers.
Alex Buttle in a recent post for Top Ten Broadband said that although many people on Orange had wanted to get their hands on an iPhone they were unable to due to o2’s exclusive deal.
Vodafone have also announced that they will be adding the iPhone to their available handsets at some point next year.

Most people in the UK have a mobile phone. Some people use several. Every year, 18 months or 2 years, mobile phone users in a contract with a provider will get their phones upgraded for free. This obviously results in millions of unused and unwanted phones being generated by almost every household every year. It’s a resource waste problem.
Fortunately most are sold on or given away to friends, contacts, online auctions and charities. Sadly some old mobile phones don’t make it that far. When people get their shiny, feature rich, quick and new handset upgrade, they sometimes store the old phone as a backup then forget all about it (losing value over time). In other instances they are just thrown away in the bin, out with the rubbish, sometimes because they are broken or faulty and other times because it’s the easiest option. Throwing them away is such a waste when anyone can get cash for old mobile phones. It would be a waste of money and damaging to the environment in a number of ways.
So what on earth is the best thing to do then?
Recycle mobile phones for cash! simple. Recycling old handsets is probably the easiest way to make some money from something that still has value while at the same time saving the environment that little bit. Mobile phone recycling companies exist that will take pretty much any old handset, working or non-working, and recycle it, reuse it, extract its parts and make sure they are dealt with properly. Every mobile phone has a small amount of gold in the electronics to make it work and gold is a much sought after valuable metal that can be recycled and used again.
Okay, I have a crappy old phone here, What should I do with it?
There are many companies that pay cash for old handsets they can all be found on the Money For Old Mobile page right here on this website. On there is a list of almost all of the mobile recycling companies in the UK. Check out each one as they all pay different amounts for old phones. Once a good one is found, simply type in the make or model of the phones to be recycled and they will display a quote. Next select the phone and input where the payment should be sent and the type of payment, usually cheque but some will pay vouchers or by direct bank transfer. After that get an envelope and put the freepost address on that they provide then post it. Once they receive the phone they will send payment within 2 to 7 days depending on the company and how long it takes them to process.
