Sell an old mobile phone and enjoy new device plus cheaper bill
6 July 2010 — 3:56 PM
Britons could use a switch of tariff as an opportunity to sell an old mobile phone and invest in a smart new model.
Research by Top10.com shows people in the UK typically waste some £800 million each year through being on the wrong deal.
And changing to a contract or tariff that matches a user's requirements would save an average of £62 every 12 months.
"Before people upgrade their phones or switch networks, we recommend they check their previous bills to work out how many minutes they're actually using," says Alex Buttle, of the website.
Armed with this knowledge, consumers could not only get cash for an old mobile, but splash out on a new phone with a cost-effective charging system.
The expert adds there are now a significant number of deals available, so there could be something for everyone.
One device due to be released in the coming months that may be of interest to those planning an upgrade is the Nokia N8, which will be the firm's first Symbian device.
