Recycle old mobile phone to fund iPhone 4 deal
24 June 2010 — 3:58 PM
Recycling a mobile phone for cash may be the only way some people can afford to splash out on the new iPhone 4.
According to moneysupermarket.com, the revolutionary device could typically cost £349 for a 16GB model and £429 for the 32GB alternative to buy.
While many will see this as a shrewd investment in the latest version of the iconic Apple technology, getting the best deal is still important.
Orange, Vodafone, O2 and Tesco have now all announced tariffs for using the iPhone 4, with prices varying between firms.
Mike Wilson, mobiles manager at the website, says: "When choosing an iPhone deal, think about what kind of user you are then look at the total cost of the tariff, including the cost of the handset and the monthly payments over the term of the deal to see which one is the best value."
Another option for consumers is to instead buy an Apple iPad, of which more than three million have been sold in 80 days, the firm revealed this week.
