Mobile recycling an option to consider?

Selling an old mobile phone may be an option worth considering for people looking to do more with one handset.

Recent findings from Juniper Research found that by 2014 users of location-based local search on mobiles would reach one and a half billion.

New smartphones are increasingly including Global Positioning System (GPS), which may prove an attractive proposition for those looking for a satellite navigation system.

Mobile recycling for cash with Envirofone could be worth considering for people that would like to find their way around more easily.

Danny Brogan, reviews editor of Mobile Choice, said: "With more smartphones sporting large vibrant screens and extended battery life mobile phones are becoming a genuine alternative to dedicated sat nav devices."

He added that due to this consumers can carry one less device around with them.

Gartner research revealed that in the first quarter of 2010 smartphone sales to end users reached 54.3 million units, a 48.7 per cent increase from the same period the previous year.
