Review by Daviid

It was the best deal on offer, the postage paid pack arrived within 48 hrs and they paid within 72hrs of me posting it. And they kept me informed at each stage.

Store Overview

O2 Recycle Review

We all know the phone giant O2, some of us even receive that monthly bill. Well now they are making a name for themselves in the mobile recycling industry. Operated by Redeem, O2 recycle was launched in 2009, they have been around longer than the likes of Orange Recycle and Vodafone Recycle, making O2's solution a safe bet with its experience under their belt.

The brand gives consumers the ability to sell their old handsets for cash with the company, paying some of the highest prices for old handsets with the added support of a mobile network that has all the knowledge and experience at their fingertips.

With O2 recycle, you know you are getting fantastic customer service as well as a good price. This is down to their business of selling phones on a regular basis - they know all there is to know about phones.

The O2 recycle website offers a simple drop down menu allowing you to quickly navigate through the makes and models to find yours. Once you have selected the phone you would like to sell, you will receive a quote. Your details will then be required before a free post package is sent to your house. Like most phone buyers O2Recycle use the UK's Royal Mail to transport handsets around. CompareMyMobile recommends that you pay for an insurance upgrade for more valuable devices, as this will ensure you get paid even if it is lost. Once this has been checked, the money will be on its way to you on the same day.

This process is made easy as the recycling business has taken advantage of their stores which feature in towns across the UK. The price will remain the same, as we take the value from our database, but the trade in store process offers a 'there and then' payment.

The company don't possess the highest price in every make or model. But that doesn't bother this giant, as they are now offering a top price promise. This simply means if you find a better price on the market, which you will do if you use the CompareMyMobile search. That price will then be matched, all for just simply filling out a quick form. A brilliant option to this brand and one O2 can simply afford.

On their website, they claim to have great customer service and a complete satisfaction rating. In fact 9/10 customers scored the service highly, with the same number recommending the service to friends using the service again themselves.

The brand has been built to be one of the best mobile providers offered and now they are taking recycling seriously. If they improve on certain areas, such as payment options, then this company could become the biggest in the UK blowing all other competitors out the window.

Key Points:

Price promise: Find a better price and the company will match the price for you.
In store trading: Take advantage of any store that offers a recycling service in your local shop. It gives you fast, easy access with the matching price and same day payment.
Trusted brand: We all know how good O2 can be, plus being operated by Redeem certainly makes it better.
Charity: They donate £1 to the 'Think Big' scheme support young children with every order.
Payment options: A big brand like O2 should offer more payment options to be included in the service.
