I’ve had a quick look into which of the mobile operators let you sell your phone back to them.
Turns out o2 have the lead in this area and operate o2 Recycle.
Now, o2 was the first network in the UK to be allowed to sell Apple’s famous iPhone. A glance at the site suggests you can sell your iPhone back to them for over £200. That’s pretty impressive. You don’t even have to be trying to sell your old o2 mobile phone as the site says they’ll accept phones from any networks and even gadgets like GPS systems.
I predict the other operators will get into this market pretty swiftly. In fact, they may already be here but haven’t grown their offering into anything I noticed. I also predict there will be more people looking to sell their o2 mobile phone as time goes on, as people become much more aware of this option – good for the environment and good for mobile adoption in the third world too.
