It’s becoming a common practice nowadays for users to change their mobile phones due to constant technology updations and rising incomes.

They check things like battery condition and scratches on the outer cover. If your phone is rejected you will get a reduced price or it will be returned to you. It will then be up to you to decide whether you want to recycle it or keep it as it as in your house, although the latter only ends up adding to the already increasing pile of trash in our homes.

Just a few words of advice though. Don’t forget to delete all your personal information before posting your phone. It will also work for your advantage if you post your phone by insured mailing since it is easy for postages to get lost. This way you will be reimbursed if your phone is lost.
