Gig-goers may be best off recycling old mobile phone

People who want to be at the front of the queue for all their favourite gigs and performances may be wise to recycle their mobile phone and splash out on an iPhone.

That is because mobile provider O2 has launched an app for the revolutionary Apple device that allows users to buy tickets before they go on general sale.

Available to download from the iTunes Store, Priority Tickets offers access to more than 1,500 venues from across the UK, including London's O2 Arena.

Those who add the app to their iPhone will typically be given a 48-hour period in which to secure their spot at concerts before spaces are released to the public.

"With this app we are making it even easier for [customers] to have incredible experiences that they can share with the people that matter to them the most," says Jonathan Earle, head of consumer mobile at the company.

Those planning to recycle a mobile may also be interested in a system recently released by O2 that allows consumers to check the environmental impact of their chosen handset.
