Selling an old mobile may allow for an upgrade

Mobile recycling could put money in your pocket.

Mobile recycling with Envirofone for cash to put towards a new handset may be an option worth considering for consumers with an older version of the Apple iPhone.

James Zielinski, co-founder of, recently suggested that with the new iPhone operating system Apple had "smoothed off those rough edges by making the software more organised and able to flow from task to task".

This is due to new features including multitasking for third party apps, folders for improved organisation and better mail with a unified inbox.

However, he also noted the biggest upgrade of multi-tasking "is only available to Apple 3GS - its latest model phone", something that may be frustrating for those using a first or second generation iPhone.

The 3GS has a faster processor, which may result in a "poor, sluggish experience" if older models were able to multi-task, he added.

Research from Flip Video suggested that almost a third of people are now increasingly using their device to email and use social networking websites to talk to their loved ones.
