What to do with your old mobile phone
With more and more people using contract mobile phones, it was inevitable that we could end up in the situation where we all have lots of older handsets sitting around in our drawers. But, instead of leaving them lying around there are some better options that you can look at.
Trading in – when you go to a Vodafone Roscommon stores such as https://kingcommunications.ie/vodafone-stores-near-me/roscommon/ to look for a new phone once your contract has ended, it is worth speaking to the phone specialist about whether they have a trade in scheme. In some cases you can trade in your new phone to get some money off the handset of a new one. This could mean that you have less to pay upfront for your upgrade.
Recycling – if you don’t want to trade in your phone there are mobile phone recycling schemes that allow you to deposit your phone. They will then take the phone apart and recycle any bits that they can. This is a great option for phones that no longer work or that have smashed screens.
Gifting – if you know someone that needs a new phone or that can not afford to buy one for themselves you could give them your old phone. This works really well for teenagers who are looking to get their first phone as well as for older people who might only need a pay as you go sim card for emergencies when they are out and about.
