Mobile recycling is proving popular with Britons.

Mobile recycling may be an option worth considering for people looking to use their phone to do more than just call or text.

Recent research from Orange found that almost two million of the company's customers use their handset to access social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, with men viewing 33 per cent more pages on average than females.

Saturday was found to be the most popular day for mobile internet usage as football supporters check the latest scores from around the country.

Deborah Tonroe, head of entertainment and information at Orange UK, said: “As this is the sixth issue of our Digital Media Index report, we were keen to delve deeper and offer an insight into how customers use their mobile handsets."

She added the report "does reveal some interesting results" and demonstrates that users are using their mobile handsets for more than just voice and text.

Consumers could wish to consider recycling their old mobile phone with Envirofone for cash to put towards a new handset and begin to make use of internet on the move.
