You must have seen the ad on the television of a guy carrying a sweet little orange coloured cell phone and jumping happily inside a bag. That advertisement shows a woman with a new cell phone, who is willing to sell her old one for cash. It is a reputed online recycling firm in the UK, but sometimes it may not provide the highest value for a phone.
Recently, a survey conducted in Philippines revealed that this nation with a 92 million population has around 87 million subscribers using cell services. This constitutes 94% of the total population of the country. It is like a drop of water into the vast ocean. International Telecommunications Union pegged world-wide cell phone subscribers at approximately 5 billion. Just imagine, each owner use a cell phone just for a year, and if so many people discard their cell phones each year, the carbon footprint from obsolete handsets can create astronomical harm to our Earth’s environment.
Ofcom, a telecommunication regulator holds that all cell phones should have free access to Freephone numbers.

What more do you need? A new unrestricted data usage tariff has just been launched.
Yesterday, I took the decision of selling off my old cell phone. I took the first opportunity to visit sellcell.com. I have memorized the names of majority of the prominent mobile phone recyclers from different sources such as television adverts, etc. Despite this, I prefer visiting SellCell, as it is the only place where I can know what each company is offering, with just a few clicks of the mouse. This saves me both effort and time in searching for the best deals.
