SellMyMobile.com March 2010 Discrepancies Countdown

As an independent price comparison site that compares more mobile phone buyers in the UK than any other, SellMyMobile.com is able to help consumers get the most for their money when recycling their old devices.

Brits are losing out when it comes to recycling their old mobile phones, with owners of the 10 most popular recycled handsets potentially missing out on extra cash worth £554.87 for their old devices, reveals this month’s Recycling Value Countdown from mobile phone recycling price comparison site SellMyMobile.com.

Sony Ericsson’s popular mobile gaming device, the Yari, was revealed as the phone with the biggest difference in recycling prices offered. If consumers shop around, they could earn themselves as much as £95 for their old handset. However, those that don’t might end up with as little as £25, a cash difference of just over £70 for the same device. The most popular handset manufacturer featured in this month’s Countdown was Taiwanese firm HTC, with five handsets (two own brand and three white-label) featuring in the top 10.

Keir McConomy, MD of SellMyMobile.com, commented, “Mobile phone recycling is becoming increasingly popular with UK consumers, but one of the biggest problems they face is finding the best deal for their old devices. There is a massive variation between what’s offered across the UK’s mobile phone recycling sites, with prices offered for individual handsets fluctuating widely between services. As an independent price comparison site that compares more mobile phone buyers in the UK than any other, SellMyMobile.com is able to help consumers get the most for their money when recycling their old devices.”
