How we do mobile phone recycling?

Have you ever heard of mobile phone recycling? Do not worry if you have not, until not too long ago, neither did we. Mobile phone recycling is not a new concept, but it is something that very few people are aware of and even fewer people are practicing it.

A mobile phone should not just be discarded with the normal trash. It contains certain electrical parts that can be harmful to the environment when not disposed of in the correct way. What very few people know is that recycling is not necessarily just the correct way of disposing of a mobile phone. Recycling can also mean that it is used again, or even that parts of it is used again,

At Mazuma Mobile we aim to sell as many of the old phones that we buy to communities where they can not afford to buy a new phone, or are not in a position where they can afford to take out a contract for a phone.

The phones that we cannot use will be discarded in the correct mobile phone recycling way. We are registered with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Authorised Treatment Facility and are ISO 14001 Environmental Management System Accredited.

By practicing correct mobile phone recycling and enabling people to use your phone again, you will be doing a great deed for the environment. And probably more importantly, you will be able to get some cash in your wallet. And would not want to get money for something that would have just been tucked away in a drawer or thrown out with the regular garbage?

Environmentally Friendly Technology – Recycling Your Mobile Phone for Cash

We all know that traditionally, technology and the environment do not often mix in the sense that modern technology often incurs many non-environmentally friendly components such as plastics and metals in their masses. Of course, these new technological devices will only be allowed to grow if consumers and made aware of their environmental consequences should they be disposed of incorrectly. Many often take advantage of their out of date mobiles to sell them and get some spare cash, some on the Internet and some through private sales amongst friends or acquaintances. However, there are many others who simply throw them out, often even mixed with other everyday household rubbish.

Not only is this devastating for the environment, but also completely overlooks the very plausible and much needed recycling industry. Through various campaigns and publicity, many mobile phone companies have become aware of the importance of recycling mobile phones and have tried to instil the same awareness in their customers in the way of offering tempting discounts on new mobile phone contracts or cash rewards for those who hand in old mobile phones when purchasing a new one. Thus it is really not difficult to become an active member of the recycling industry and you can even get an added bonus out of it in the form of cash reductions on your new mobile.

At Mazuma Mobile, you can sell your phone for cash and help do your bit for the environment.

AMOLED Screens to Revolutionise the Mobile Market

AMOLED technology is here to stay, so all the technical experts tell us, but what is AMOLED technology and what’s so special about it?

AMOLED is an acronym that stands for the incredibly technical sounding Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode. Well, the active matrix is a rather grand way to say that the screen has layers. We have all become relatively used to the term LED, having had watches that first ran on LED displays in the eighties, and more recently some of our flat screen TV’s run on LED screens, often with a backlight for greater colour.

The Organic Light Emitting Diode is a relatively new development. These organic compounds are lighter, malleable, flexible and more durable than their crystal based alternatives. They work under the same principle, with varying amounts of electricity causing the compound to light up in a variety of colours. And in combination with other layers, creates a full spectrum, appropriate for TV’s, monitors and more noticeably mobile phones.

AMOLED displays take up less energy than their counterparts, as well as having a higher refresh rate, which is why Samsung have invested so much time with them to produce the Galaxy S. This incredible phone has a massive four inch screen and is considered by many to have the best colour of all the current mobiles on the market.

If you are thinking of buying a Galaxy S, don’t forget to sell your mobile with Mazuma Mobile. We will give you cash for mobiles and help you pay for that new handset.

Clearly, these wonderful and well loved pieces of technology that we have lovingly kept safe in phone socks and adorned with glittery trinkets cannot be simply discarded like unwanted packaging. So, we have come up with a few possibilities for you to consider.

  1. Your old mobile phone could make an excellent and unusual replacement for a brick in that new barbeque you are building.
  2. How about practicing your juggling with a few of these small handsets. They don’t bounce that well, but it’s okay – you are not supposed to drop them.
  3. Flip phones are an excellent alternative to communicators for that production of ‘Star Trek – The Musical’ you are in.
  4. Dog got no bone? Well, try a phone. Make sure it’s pretty strong though, as those little bits can choke!

Seriously though, At Mazuma Mobile we will give your beloved retired phone the life it deserves. When you sell your mobile, we work hard to ensure at least 95% of the phones we trade in get reused in developing markets around the world, giving your beloved friend a new life.

Your Old Mobile – Recycle or Sell?

With an sector such as the mobile phone industry growing rapidly by the day, it is not unusual for even the most non-technological people to have old mobile phones in their bottom drawer. ‘Old’ of course, does not always mean broken, but just simply out of date, therefore it is not always necessary and is certainly not very productive just to throw it away. With the parallel growth of the Internet and online auction companies such as eBay, it is often tempting to advertise your old mobile phone in order to gain some money to put towards a new one. However anyone who has ever experienced online selling, will know that the selling process is not always that easy. There are often problems with buyer reliability, when payments do not come through or transactions are cancelled or payments are not on time.

There is the other drawback of product reliability in the sense that it is often difficult to know what shape the mobile phone is in when you sell or indeed buy it. Most sell their old mobile believing that it is in full working order, however it is impossible to know of future complications which often lead to goods being returned and money and time being lost. Thus it is well worthwhile considering phone recycling for cash or even for a considerable reduction on your new mobile phone contract.

At Mazuma we exchange old mobile phones for cash in a quick and easy process.

What to Do with Your Old Mobile

First of all, under no circumstances must you throw it out. With mobile phones becoming cheaper and cheaper by the day and much more accessible, there really is no need to hold on to broken mobiles or even “out of date” models that you no longer desire and unfortunately, due to their relatively low economical value, often end up in the bin. However there really is no need for this as there are numerous options for your old or broken mobile and throwing it out should always be your last option.

In the case of broken mobiles, you should consider mobile recycling or some parts of it as there are many phone shops that will happily take in what you no longer need. If it is just the case that you have been offered an upgrade or that your mobile is simple no longer fashionable, why not sell you mobile phone for some extra pocket money or trading it in as part of a new contract, a new and attractive offer? Phone recycling for cash is often the preferred option especially amongst the young as they are very much in contact with the mobile phone industry. Either way, you can rest assured that there are many options available for your old phone before resorting to throwing it in the dustbin.

At Mazuma we have everything you need to help you sell, trade in or recycle your old, broken or simply unwanted mobile phones.

Apple to Give Out Free Cases

At long last, following the many campaigns, Apple, the manufacturers of the iPhone have finally conceded. Whilst they don’t accept that there is anything wrong with their iPhone4, they actually believe their phone’s antenna issue is the same on other phones, they do accept that there is an easy fix to the problem and have decided to issue out free bumpers or cases to their iPhone 4 customers.

Apple insiders have admitted that the tendency within the upper echelons of Apple, are more concerned with the design of the product, which causes immeasurable problems to the engineering team. That combined with tight deadlines in a very competitive market have meant that corners may have been cut.

The basic problem appears to be because wireless signals don’t go through metal. In an effort to avoid an antenna sticking out of the top of the iPhone, designers chose to create an antenna band that goes around the handset. Unfortunately antenna don’t work as well when you touch them, so this has meant a weakened signal if held incorrectly. Apple believes the free cases will resolve the issue once and for all.

If you are fed up with your iPhone4, or have simply found an alternative that works more efficiently, maybe it’s time to sell your phone. At Mazuma Mobile we recycle mobile phones for cash. With just a short visit to our website you can find out what your phone is worth, and have a cheque in the post in as little as two days.
