Out with the old and in with the new

The old saying ‘out with the old and in with the new’ is a good mantra to operate by. However, when it comes to mobile phones, you may find it’s simply a case of ‘in with the new’, meaning your old handsets pile up.

These days, new and impressive phones are being released onto the market constantly and in your efforts to keep up with the trends and make the most of what technology has to offer, you could find you’ve built up quite a collection of unused mobiles. What you might not realise is that these devices could be worth a tidy sum. Indeed, it may be worth your while investigating how much cash you could generate if you recycle mobile phones.

A hit with consumers

One new handset that you might be keen to invest in is the Samsung Galaxy S3. According to figures produced by uSwitch, the device is now the UK’s most popular mobile phone, the Daily Mail reports. It took the top spot just two days after it was launched, knocking the iPhone 4S off pole position.

Responding to this, uSwitch said: “The iPhone 4S had waited six long months to steal the crown from long-standing favourite, the Samsung Galaxy S2, which had been at number one for 11 consecutive months. But Apple’s star phone only had one month of glory thanks to the hype surrounding Samsung’s launch of the S3 in May.”

No wonder it’s a hit

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail also went on to point out that the handset has been highly praised by reviewers since it was released. It stated: “As well as combining the largest Super AMOLED HD Android screen on the market with a super-fast quad core processor, it boasts an array of features – including S Voice and unique eye-tracking technology that ensures the screen never dims while you are looking at it – that have proved a hit with users.”

How mobile phone recycling can help you stay up to date

You might find that as soon as you’ve got your hands on a new mobile phone, another one comes out that takes your fancy. Technology’s progressing so fast at present and as and when new devices come out, they often have innovative features.

Keeping up with the latest developments in the field can be tricky and it can require plenty of spending. This is where mobile phone recycling comes into its own. Rather than amassing lots of redundant handsets you no longer use, you can exchange them for cash – benefiting both your wallet and the planet.

Smartphones are in vogue

The most interesting developments in the mobile communications world at present seem to be in the realm of smartphones. There’s certainly no shortage of these products available for you to take advantage of these days.

According to PwC’s Global Entertainment & Media Outlook report, around 40 per cent of the money spent on accessing the web last year was spent on mobile internet usage. This is thanks to the rising popularity of smartphones, those behind the study suggested.

Meanwhile, this figure is on track to increase further to 46 per cent by 2016, the report claimed.

The smartphone appeal

Commenting on the popularity of these devices, PwC’s senior partner of Entertainment & Media Phil Stokes stated: “We in Europe have a legacy infrastructure and mobiles are generally the secondary device, but [even in the UK] we are increasingly seeing some people thinking their mobiles will do everything they need.” He added: “The simple fact is that smartphones really have caught the public desire. Access to the internet [on mobiles] is becoming a commodity like gas.”

Talking more generally about the entertainment market, the expert remarked: “There is an ongoing shift from offline to online, and from fixed to mobile.”

Turning old phones into cash

In the past, you might have let old mobiles pile up in draws and on shelves around your home. However, this could be a major waste of money. Unused phones are often in great condition and can be worth plenty of money.

So, to turn your old handsets into cash, you can use our services here at Mazuma Mobile. We’re experts when it comes to this process. Whether you want to sell Nokia phone sets or any other items, all you have to do is follow the simple steps on our website.

Step one

Stage two

Secondly, once you’ve received our sales pack or printed your own, you can post your phone to us.

Stage three

Then all that’s left is to take receipt of your payment. Once we’ve received your handset and checked everything’s in order, we’ll hand over the money. Of course, after this, the rest’s up to you. You can spend the cash on whatever you want.

Lost without your mobile

It’s no surprise that so many people now use mobile phone recycling services. Consumers tend to go through a lot of these devices and they can be worth a tidy sum, even second-hand.

Meanwhile, if you feel lost without your mobile, you’re not alone. Research carried out by security app provider Lookout found that 58 per cent of Americans don’t go for more than an hour without checking their smartphones and those aged between 18 and 34 were the most likely to look at their handsets frequently.

The Mobile Mindset Study also found that nearly seven in ten people polled had lost their phones at some point and some of these individuals felt “sick” with worry when they couldn’t locate their devices.

If you’ve recently started using a new mobile and want to recycle your old one, you’ve come to the right place.

The Importance of Recycling

As a nation, we are becoming much more conscious about the need to recycle. In the last few years, the number of UK households which recycle regularly has risen to nearly 40%, thanks to schemes by councils making it much easier for us to recycle from home. This increase suggests that consumers will recycle if the process is simplified. Collecting all your glass bottles and jars to take to the local bottle bank is much less appealing than simply putting them in a recycling box in your house and remembering to lift it outside on the right day.

Recycling isn’t just for bottles and cans, however. There are all kinds of products that you can recycle to help both the environment and others, and mobile phone recycling is just one of these. We’ve aimed to make the process of recycling your phone just as easy as recycling those glass bottles on your doorstep, but first of all – just why should you recycle your phone?

Why Recycle?

Mobile phones contain toxic substances such as Cadmium, Lead Solder, Palladium and Rhodium. If thrown away without being recycled, these can leak into the environment causing damage and contamination. With an estimated four redundant handsets per household in the UK, and with consumers upgrading their phones every year on average, this leads to millions of toxic handsets lying around with the potential to harm our planet.

The usual routine on upgrading a phone is that you’ll keep hold of your former handset for a while, until you realise that you couldn’t go back to it because it’s so outdated, or even because you’ve upgraded even further. At this point you might think, “I wonder if I should sell my Nokia that’s been stuck in a drawer for ages?” but after a quick search you’ll find that it’s been so long that it’s hardly worth the effort and you might as well just throw it in a bin.

We’re here to encourage every mobile phone owner in the UK to stop throwing away their old Nokia phones and other redundant handsets, but to recycle a Nokia phone, make yourself some cash, save the environment and help others in developing countries at the same time. Plus, the sooner you do it, the more money you are likely to make for yourself.

What Happens to My Old Phone?

First and foremost, you’ll pocket a nice cheque, bank transfer or Argos voucher (you choose) for yourself and you’ll know that your phone’s not going to be making its way to a landfill site to leak its toxic chemicals into the soil anytime soon, so that’s win-win for starters.

Secondly, your phone will not be recycled in the sense that its parts will be processed to be used elsewhere or destroyed in a sustainable manner. Our recycling philosophy is to reuse your old phones by sending them to developing markets in places such as China, Africa, Pakistan and India. Communication is such a vital part of development these days, and by sending your old phones to these nations, we are collectively helping them to advance.

Make Money From Your Blackberry

The mobile phone industry moves at a tremendous rate and can very quickly turn what is a current phone into a retro-looking embarrassment. Of course, this isn’t to say that the phone isn’t capable, it is just the speed of technological change in this intensive industry. With the recent news that Blackberry are to shift focus to the business market thus lessening focus on the commercial sector, many people will be looking to cash in on their phones asking “how can I sell my Blackberry quick?” Given that Android and Apple are coming to dominate the mobile phone industry almost entirely, many are now looking to jump ship. However, this isn’t to say that the Blackberry is incapable or is behind the times, it is still a great smartphone that can deliver a number of different functionalities including great apps.

At Mazuma Mobile we can offer very good prices on current and older generation Blackberry phones. If you are looking to sell mobile phone right now, then our store can offer options for you. We can buy your working Blackberry Bold for a great price, although you will have to act fast. Phones can lose value over a matter of months, so it is important to get your phone to us straight away.

Many people don’t want the hassle of having to sell their phone through eBay, particularly if it is not functional. We can also pay you for non-working Blackberries so long as they are in a complete state and have the batter with them.
