Phone users can sell mobile ahead of LG Optimus One switch
8 November 2010 — 11:57 AM
Users of out-of-date phones may be at the front of the queue when it comes to selling their mobile and replacing it with a new offering from Three.
The network has announced it is now stocking the LG Optimus One, which runs on the latest version of the Froyo operating system made by Google.
One particular advantage of the phone is the two internal antennas it boasts that help it to access Three's award-winning internet service and 3G network.
Sylvia Chind, head of branded devices at the company, says: "Our strong 3G network makes the most of the Google Android operating system and brings to life features such as the portable Wi-Fi hotspot."
Another incentive for potential owners of the device is its inclusion on The One Plan, Three's affordable tariff scheme, for £30 a month.
The firm recently carried out research into mobile broadband habits, finding Facebook to be the most popular feature among phone users who browse the web.
Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "Having no signal can be extremely frustrating, so you might want to consider upgrading your phone. You could trade-in your old handset and make a bit of extra cash."
