CellForCash.com announced today it will award a Firefly cell phone or $100 in cash to the winner of its monthly website drawing. Firefly cell phones are designed specifically for kids in the 8-to-12 age group.
To enter the drawing, people must go to http://www.CellForCash.com and then answer a series of survey questions. This month's survey deals with whether young Âtween-agedÂ kids should have their own cell phones, and whether that cell phone usage should be monitored and regulated.
ÂWith kids returning to school, we thought it would be a good time to find out what people think about cell phone usage by kids,Â said James Mosieur, chief executive officer of RMS Communications Group Inc., the parent company of CellForCash.com.
This month's survey includes the following five questions:
1. Do you think 8-to-12-year-olds should carry their own cell phones?
2. Should schools ban kids from bringing cell phones into their classrooms?
3. Do you think cell phones provide kids with an additional level of safety?
4. Should parents control who their kids talk to on their cell phones?
5. Should parents be able to program their kids' cell phones?
People who complete the survey and enter their e-mail addresses qualify to win a Firefly cell phone, a new phone product designed specifically for 8-to-12-year-olds. They may opt to take $100 in cash in place of the phone if they wish. The winner also qualifies to win CellForCash.com's annual grand prize of $1,000.
Some industry analysts believe that the 8-to-12-year-old market segment offers the biggest growth potential of any age group for new cell phone sales. But others think that kids in that age group have no real need to carry their own wireless phones.
ÂAs a company that buys and sells old cell phones, we're very interested in finding out how people feel about this issue,Â Mosieur said.
Besides http://www.CellForCash.com, RMS operates a number of other web sites. One, http://www.WirelessFundraiser.com, provides cash to non-profit organizations that collect and send in old cell phones. Another, http://www.RecycleForUS.com, is an environmental initiative that helps companies, government agencies and other groups and individuals collect and recycle old cell phones.
The company also operates the 911 Cell Phone Bank program, through which it donates over 1,000 cell phones every month to law enforcement and other agencies for use as 911 emergency phones.
CellForCash.com pays cash for used cell phones, and makes the process simple by displaying the phones it will buy and the prices it will pay for them right on the web site. It also provides sellers with already-addressed, postage-paid mailing boxes. Its QuickShip option makes the process even faster. For more information visit the web site at http://www.CellForCash.com
