Sprint also supports the BlackBerry in the US

Those sat on the fence about mobile recycling have been urged to take the plunge by one US network.

According to Sprint, trading in used phones when shopping for a new one is the right thing to do in terms of sustainability and protecting the planet.

It was also noted that making sure unwanted devices and components are disposed of properly plays an important role in its overall company policy.

The carrier made its comments in support of the new Samsung Instinct, a device that has yet to be launched in the UK but one it will operate across North America.

Sprint's senior vice-president of product development Kevin Packingham said the phone had already "received tremendous praise" from the public and "showcased the power of application integration and a world-class user-interface".

However, those involved in mobile recycling now already have options like Samsung's new Galaxy i7500, the recently expanded Omnia series and the existing Tocco range to choose from.
