Many people trade-in their old mobile phones for a newer model because they like to keep up with the latest technology or upgrade from something which is getting a little out-of-date, but it seems some have to get new gadgets for more unusual reasons.

One lady probably found herself purchasing a new handset as, according to, she baked her Nokia 6303i into a Victoria sponge.

Also, a construction worker apparently caused extreme water damage to his Apple iPhone 4S after it fell into a toilet bowl from his back pocket.

Some people may also find themselves buying a new device due to a moment of anger; one woman reportedly admitted breaking her handset after throwing it at her boyfriend during an argument.

More commonly, owners are motivated to recycle their old mobile phone after spilling a drink over it or dropping it on the floor and smashing the screen.
