Trading-in a mobile may be an attractive option for many people, whether it be for financial reasons or simply to upgrade to a greater model.
Now, those who do could find they have more choice than ever before when it comes to sourcing a replacement, after T-Mobile and Orange announced they are to open six shared stores.
The mobile providers, who recently merged, will launch the dual-branded outlets on a trial basis.
Andrew Coull, vice-president of retail at Everything Everywhere, which is the firm created as a result of the merger, said: "Both the franchise and dual branded trials give us an amazing opportunity to extend our reach into new places and importantly give our customers even more choice in existing locations."
The premises to offer both Orange and T-Mobile phones will be in Palmers Green, Dorchester, Weston-super-Mare, Bridgend, Hertford and Tooting.
Orange recently announced it is launching a number of new and affordable deals to buy the Apple iPad, which may appeal to some of those who sell used phones.
