Phone recycling envelope - worth dosh!

I've got an envelope for sending old phones to Orange for recycling - and the newer old phones could be worth money which they'll pay to you.

I'm not completely sure but it doesn't seem like they need Orange-specific phones.

You can find out if your phone is worth anything here.

If you'd like the envelope, PM me your address.

PS I entered an ancient Nokia 6310i into the website above - value 0.00 Laughing

I would, but that involves getting up to see what model it is. And that is currently beyond my capabilities.

You can scroll down through the menu thingy on the left and choose by picture.

My previous (pre fruit) phone is worth two quid - I'm rich! Except that I've put a PAYG sim in it, so won't be recycling...

Hmm, it seems my phone is worth nothing to anyone except me!

I have a Motorola Pebl. It's an original from Christmas 2005 and I have tried to replace it but just can't find any other one that I like as much!

It works but the camera is broken. I guess I'll just have to wait till it conks out and then I'll be forced to replace it! Then I will recycle it ....

I loved my Motorola Pebl too... hung onto it for as long as I could, till the screen went. Then got a Nokia... I have to say I found the Nokia very good, when I got used to it Rolling Eyes

on a sightly diferent line of recycling old phones, anyone got a phone that will work on T mobile that is worth 0.00 for recycling they could send on to me, mine is on its way out and because of the darn long contracts they tie you into nowdays im not due an upgrade for a while so im looking for something to tide me over for about 8 months
just a thought lol

Bugger me! 272 (and I found it next to a motorway) Laughing

Well 'tis the only mobile fone I have held in years and I aren't likely to hold another for many yrs to come so why not?

because if it stolen they will trace it back to you. plus will only pay out if phone in pristine condition. OH looked at offers and because slight scratch offered next to nothing on his iphone

Of course those sites only work if you subscribe to "must have new shiny thing now" principle. If you use the principle of "it works so I won't replace it yet" then by the time you do try to sell it you'll be lucky if you can get tuppence ha'penny for it.

Nokia E72: 45 (but I occasionally use it).

The Motorola K1 gets 0

I'm on hand me downs so I can't afford to send it to them.

We send ours on to the RNLI using a charity envelope for this and toner/ink recycling. It's a charity my family have long supported but their Christmas cards are vile!

I know Fee has registered to here to collect old phones for money for Willow's care. She has registered but I don't know the details. I will ask.....
