Internet users may have new incentive to sell old mobile
16 July 2010 — 6:37 PM
People who rely on their handheld device to browse the internet may have a reason to sell any old mobile phones in their possession and invest in a smart new VM800.
The handset, produced by Alcatel for Virgin Media, is to be offered exclusively by the company on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Its pink chrome finish and full qwerty keyboard are just two of the specifications that may excite those thinking of purchasing it.
But what may really grab their attention is Virgin Media's offer to provide users with six months of free mobile web access.
Customers can pay £39.99 to purchase the phone - of which at least a significant portion could be raised by selling an old mobile.
This includes £10 on airtime and comes with 300 texts, perhaps further increasing the appeal of splashing out on the device.
Virgin Media describes itself as the UK's leading communications and entertainment provider.
