Top Five Touchscreen Complaints

If you’ve decided to sell your mobile to us, the odds are good there will be at least a few post-use gripes relating to things like ease of use etc. With touchscreens like the iPhone 4 and HTC Desire cornering the market, are there any significant downsides to touchscreening (it’s a real word!) our way to technological bliss? Apparently, there are!

•    Using touchscreens in bright sunlight is enough drive even the most ardent touchscreen fan to the phone bank.

•    Text goodbye to one-handed texting! The iPhone is a fairly low level culprit on this one, but horizontal phones like the Nokia N900 require both of your hands or they’re not cooperating!

•    Finger mistakes are common if the user has anything remotely like a broad finger pad. Mis-hitting keys used to be a learning curve, but with touch screens it tends to be more of a daily ritual, with many folks never quite getting the hand of speedy texting like they used to back in the good old days when Nokias were simple and our mobile recycling service saw more “brick” phones than touchscreens!

•    Low sensitivity in terms of actually reacting in the way the user wants. The patience need to use a touchscreen sometimes borders on neurotic. Try to select a function VERY carefully and enjoy the three of four times you accidentally select every button around it!

•    Touchscreens are much fussier about being covered in grime, grease and bits of dinner!

Remove personal info before you sell your phone

You might have considered selling mobile phones in the past but been put off by the thought of other people seeing the personal information you hold on the device. After all, the thought of clearing your handset of all such data might be daunting and you may assume it is a technical and time consuming process.

However, if you come here to Mazuma Mobile to exchange mobile phones for cash, you can achieve this aim with the minimum of fuss. We understand you might feel insecure posting off such a device while it still has information relating to you on it and that is why we have gone out of our way to develop our Mobile Data Delete Tool.

The first of its kind in Europe, this provides you with easy to follow, step-by-step instructions that enable you to quickly and simply remove personal data before you hand over your phone. And the best thing is, the tool is completely free to use.

All you have to do to request instructions for your particular handset is complete a special form. Following this, we will email you with the relevant information within minutes. Also, you should bear in mind that new models are constantly being added, so if yours is not currently listed, keep checking.

This is just one more way in which we aim to make the process of getting cash for mobiles easier. To find out more about the way in which we operate and how our services may benefit you, simply have a look around our website.

Sell your phone even if it is broken

Normally, when possessions are broken, you stand very little chance of selling them on. For example, if you car ceases to operate, you will not be able to flog it to fellow consumers and the vast majority of dealers will not take it on either. The same applies to virtually all products, including televisions, MP3 players and so on.

So, if your mobile phone is broken, you might automatically assume that you will not be able to get any money for it. With this in mind, you might simply place the item away to gather dust, or even throw it away.

But you may be making a mistake. Here at Mazuma Mobile we are committed to mobile phone recycling and may well be prepared to hand over cash for your handset even if it is no longer operating. We buy both working and non-working devices.

When you are going through the process of trying to sell your mobile to us via our website, all you have to do is select the non-working option.

This is great as it means that what you might have thought was completely worthless a few moments ago could in fact bring you in welcome cash.

Whatever you do, don’t disregard the potential of broken phones to earn you money. Instead, come here to see whether or not you could recycle mobile phones for cash.

And, as well as potentially boosting your finances, you can rest assured you are also doing your bit for the planet as well.

You could be sitting on a much needed store of cash

Mobile phones are now an integral part of life in Britain and many other countries around the world. Not only do people use them to make calls to others, they also play games on them, conduct research, engage in shopping, send emails and listen to music, among other things.

Indeed, it is amazing how quickly such technology is progressing and this trend shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, quite the opposite is true. However, there is a negative side to all this innovation and that is wastage. Because consumers want to get the latest model, they often discard handsets relatively quickly after getting them.

You may be among the many people with a stash of old mobiles littering your home. After all, in the excitement of receiving a new device, it is easy to forget about its predecessor.

However, now might be the time for you to reassess your attitude towards your old phones. Thanks to mobile phone recycling organisations like us here at Mazuma Mobile, it is easy to exchange such items for cash. This means you might be sitting on a store of much needed money.

It seems a shame to have resources at your disposal that go unused, and by following the simple instructions on our website, you might be able to get cash for phones with the minimum of effort.

Depending on how much you earn by taking advantage of opportunities to sell old mobile phones, you may have enough to treat yourself to something nice. Or perhaps you could use it to help pay for your phone bills.

The easy way to sell your phone

You might have decided that now is the time to start selling mobile phones that you no longer use. After all, there is no point in simply allowing them to gather dust in your home and throwing them away is wasteful and harmful to the environment.

However, if you attempt to engage in such endeavours yourself by asking around your friends, family and colleagues to see if anyone needs such devices, or if you head online to sites such as eBay and Gumtree, you might find the task is time consuming and frustrating.

Also, the payment arrangements, if you ever manage to find someone who is interested in taking on your old handset, can be tricky.

But there is an easier way to sell your mobile and that is by heading to us here at Mazuma Mobile. We specialise in purchasing such devices and go out of our way to ensure the process is as simple and quick as possible.

So, by coming to us rather than trying to go it alone, you might be able to make the task considerably easier.

Meanwhile, it is also important to note that we purchase broken phones as well as working ones. While we do not pay as much for these, for obvious reasons, this could still be welcome news. After all, there are not many organisations that are prepared to hand over cash for non-working handsets.

To find out more about our mobile phone recycling services, simply have a look around our website.

Also, reusing devices is one of the most efficient forms of recycling, so you are helping to reduce the pressure on the planet’s resources.
