It seems hard to imagine but practically no-one in the UK had a mobile phone 20 years ago. And, those who were lucky enough (and wealthy enough) to own this “Space Age technology” had to contend with handheld devices that were the size of a small house brick. However, as mobile phones evolved in both design and accessibility, people quickly learnt that these handy devices could improve their lives in a myriad number of ways.
In some ways, people living in the rural areas of developing countries such as India and China are in a similar situation with their communications that we in Britain were 20 years ago. Indeed, they know that mobile phones are available yet they lack the money or accessibility to invest in one of their own.
However, the difference with their situation is that you can help.
By selling your phone to us here at Mazuma Mobile, you can help people living Africa and Asia to improve their lives immeasurably. Instead of leaving your old mobile lying around dormant or discarding it into a landfill site, you can sell Nokia mobile phones, Blackberry phones (in fact, all phones) to us so that we can send them on to people who will truly benefit from them.
As well as helping to keep communities and families in touch, this kind of mobile phone recycling also puts a good few quid in your own pocket – so it really is a win-win situation for everybody!
