Everytime I got a new phone I never really knew what to do with my old phones. I dont like spending alot of money on phones so I always have whatevers cheap, and I tend to keep them for years - so no one would really ever want to buy a cheap old phone so I cant really sell them. Thats when i discovered envirofone.
I first heard about it through a television advert, and thought it would be a good idea. Envirofone offer to buy your old and unwanted mobile phones from you, and recycle them properly - which is a great idea. All you have to do is go onto the website and enter your phone make and model number. envirofone then offer you a price which they pay, if you are happy with his all you have to do is enter your address and choose the method in which you would like to be paid. You can choose from a cheque (which is what I always go for) or a bank transfer, or an argos voucher (bit random). I was concerned that I would have to pay for the postage of the phone, however envirofone send you a pre-paid jiffy bag envelope to send your phone back to them in which arrives within a few days of submitting your phone on the website.
I only expected to get a couple of pounds for my old phones at the very most, however I was delighed to find out that I was offered a lot more than this! I did a bit of shopping around and checked other similar websites such as mazuma mobile, but envirofone offered me more by quite a considerable amount!
I took roughly 2-3 weeks from me registering my phone on the website and me sending it back to them before receiving my cheque in the post, which I think is very reasonable considering they have to test it and do checks and so forth. Its worth mentioning here that mazuma mobile also buy your old broken phones from you, just at a lower price.
Overall I think this is a brilliant service as normally I would just either throw my old phones away or horde them in a draw somewhere not really knowing what to do with them. Its great to get that little bit of extra cash for something you dont really need, and its also great that such a service exists where you can recycle your old phones safely - helping the environment out and all that!
Summary: great service!
