The eagerly awaited Apple iPhone 5 will be officially announced tomorrow and by no doubt existing Apple iPhone users will be cramming to get their hands on the latest iPhone. As experienced during the Apple iPhone 4 launch in 2009, Mazuma Mobile predicts many savvy iPhones users will sell their old iPhone to help fund their new Apple iPhone 5 purchase.
In June 2009, when Apple launched the iPhone 4, Mazuma Mobile experienced a huge increase in iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS sales. It was very evident that customers were selling their old iPhones as soon as they were able to get their hands on the latest model and using the money they received to part or whole fund their new purchase. We don’t think the Apple iPhone 5 launch will be any different.
Apple iPhones now account for over 10% of all phones recycled with Mazuma Mobile. The most popular Apple iPhones sold to Mazuma are the Apple iPhone 3GS 16GB at £130 and the Apple iPhone 4 16GB at £265.
We predict that the Apple iPhone 5 will be availble with various networks on contract from below £200. Apple iPhone 4 users will be able to sell their old iPhone 4 to Mazuma for £265, purchase a new Apple iPhone 5 and still have change!
Being a responsible consumer is about more than just buying stuff to boost the economy. We spend a great deal of time studying consumer psychology (because we’re the kind of folks who are easily obsessed by such things) and its relation to things like mobile phone recycling. We’re experts in our field, and love what we do because the end result means everyone wins – you get some cash for your mobile, we get to refurbish your phone, and your long-serving little Motorola gets a new life in a struggling economy such as India, parts of China or Africa.
Sensible consumption is about two things – buying responsibly and ethically, and buying in line with your personal circumstances. For example, buying a bunch of stuff on credit you have little hope of paying off is not responsible consumption.
• Think about “need” rather than “want”. This is particularly applicable to folks who don’t have trust funds to spend on fancy smartphones and Swarovski iPhone covers! Of course, life is a little better when we can treat ourselves, but making sure the cold hard cash is there to spend should be the first deciding factor.
• Be ethical and sensible. For example, re-using carrier bags or buying a long-term carrier bag is both sensible and ethical (as long as you remember to use it!) Avoid non-ethical companies to demonstrate that shady business is not acceptable.
• Recycling is an important part of being a responsible consumer. Recycle old mobiles, give away old clothes, separate paper and plastic – it’s all about giving and take!
Along with providing a sterling cash for phones service to you, our wonderful customers, we’re also rather tech savvy (read “tech mad”!) folks with a vested interest in all things mobile and all things that help us play Angry Birds on the toilet! Simply put, we’re smartphone people!
The idea behind most smartphones is simple – a phone and computer in one. Some models like the Nokia N900 are even equipped with a QWERTY keyboard (“QWERTY” is a really satisfying word to type quickly by the way) to add a proper feel to the whole thing and, in theory, help you type faster (although we personally find the keys a little small and our clumsy thumbs a bit big!)
Want to sell Blackberry phones, recycle Nokia phones like the N900 smartphone or pass on your old iPhone to a happy new home? Although we carry a healthy stock of very cheap mobile phones, we’ve noticed that smartphones are in serious demand in struggling economies.
Take the example of a family-run business in Pakistan. A smartphone can cover all the necessary administration points of both a mobile phone and laptop. Prominent charities and resellers in such economies are always keen to accept smartphones from us because of their great functionality. Your HTC Desire might be purely for entertainment, browsing the web and chatting to your mates, but in a struggling economy like those of Pakistan, India, Africa and parts of China it could provide a valuable all-inclusive tool to help families keep in touch and businesses thrive.
A bit of extra cash is always welcome, especially these days when the cost of living is at an all-time high. Of course, there are many ways to supplement your income, with some being distinctly easier than others. To this end, if you have any old mobile phones in your draws or cupboards then you might well be able to take advantage of one the easiest ways to earn a bit of extra cash.
Sell mobile phones for cash
Instead of leaving them lying around, you can sell old mobile phones to us here at Mazuma Mobile. If your old mobile meets out terms and conditions, we will gladly buy it off you and quite possibly pay more than you might initially think. The amount of money that you can receive will depend on two factors: the first is the model of the phone; and the second is the condition it is in (i.e., ‘working’ or ‘non-working’).
How does it work?
All you need to do is enter the details of your old phone into our website and we will give you an immediate amount that we will pay. If you are happy with the amount, simply request a freepost bag, send us the bag back with your old phone enclosed and you will receive your payment the very same day that we receive the delivery.
Fancy a bit of extra cash? Dig out your unwanted phones and get in touch with us at Mazuma Mobile, today.
On average, British employees work the longest hours in Europe. Indeed, many people throughout the UK ‘live to work’ rather than ‘work to live’. Consequently, ‘free time’ is now at premium so it is important that you are able to take care of jobs and tasks as quickly as possible to ensure you can make the most of it.
Therefore, if you want to recycle mobile phones, you may well need to get on with it quickly and efficiently. Sadly, this is not always possible as many phone recycling providers simply cannot deliver their services quickly enough. Indeed, the poor service of some inefficient service providers can even create delays as they can be very tardy when it comes to making their payments. This can lead to even more of your free time being wasted as you chase up the company concerned to find out what is happening with your payment.
Thankfully, there is a far quicker way to recycle old mobile phones and that is to use our services here at Mazuma Mobile. We appreciate that time is of the essence and that is why we have optimised our services to be as fast and straightforward as possible. Within minutes, our website will let you know exactly how much you stand to earn if you choose to sell your mobile and from there on in, the process of dispatching your phone and receiving your payment moves rapidly.

Life in modern Britain moves at breakneck speed these days. Indeed, it can often feel like there are simply not enough hours in the day for you to take care of all the things which need doing, especially if you have a demanding job or family commitments. However, there are occasions when taking a little time out can be very beneficial, and not just for recharging your batteries.
If you have an old mobile phone that you don’t use anymore, you can do something with it in a matter of minutes that will make you feel very good about yourself.
What’s the “good thing”?
By sending your phone to us here at Mazuma Mobile, you can help other people who are less fortunate than yourself, as well as help to protect the environment.
Here at Mazuma Mobile, all of the old mobile phones that we refurbish get sent to developing countries so that people who ordinarily couldn’t afford a brand-new phone can have access to mobile communications.
Helping the planet
Some of the components contained in mobile phones can harm the environment if they get deposited in normal landfill sites. Thankfully, the mobile phone recycling programmes we provide can help to prevent this.
So why not send us any phones that you no longer use. We’ll pay you for it, and it really does only take a couple of minutes. Go on; take some time to do some good…
It is fair to say that most of us have become quite complacent about our ‘disposable society’. Indeed, many of us don’t even think twice anymore about throwing away items that are in perfectly good working order after they have been replaced with a more up-to-date model.
However, there is a growing awareness that this is simply not acceptable. Indeed, recycling has become far more popular in recent few years as a direct result of more and more people actually feeling guilty about the amount of perfectly good items they throw away. In addition, people are also far more aware that some items that are disposed of on a regular basis can also cause harm to the environment. For example, old mobile phones contain a number of toxic elements that can cause pollution if they find their way into landfill sites.
Thankfully, old mobiles can be easily recycled by us here at Mazuma Mobile. Our mobile phone recycling service is a very simple yet effective measure that enables people to sell old mobile phones for cash. We then send the phones we buy to developing countries so that they can be used by people who will greatly benefit from them. This means that not only will there be fewer toxic elements causing pollution to the environment, there will also be someone benefitting from personal communications that they might otherwise never have been able to afford.
So please think twice before throwing that two year-old phone in the bin.
