It's simple to recycle your Vodafone phone with CompareMyMobile. And get a good price, too. Read on for what you need to know...
Is it possible to sell a contract phone?
Yes, you can sell a Vodafone contract phone, but before doing so you need to consider a few key pointers.
Firstly, is the device locked to Vodafone? If so, then you’ll need to let us know when using our comparison tools. It’s easy, just use the filters to say whether your phone is locked or unlocked and we’ll show you the best prices available right now.
Secondly, if your contract is up, then the phone belongs to you and is yours to sell as you see fit. So you don’t need to worry about whether the network you bought it from has a policy preventing the early sale of a phone you bought from it.
Is the price affected if my phone is locked to Vodafone?
The good news is that prices are broadly the same for locked or unlocked Vodafone phones.
Once you send the device to one of our partners, they can take care of either unlocking it, selling it to a Vodafone customer or taking the device apart and recycling its parts for use in reconditioned smartphones.
Can I sell a phone that's still under contract?
While some Vodafone contracts now split the cost of the device and the airtime you need for calls, texts and data, meaning you may be able to sell the handset early (as long as you keep paying off your contract with Vodafone), it’s highly advisable to wait until your contract is up.
For starters, some contracts are essentially loans, with the network owning the phone until it’s fully paid off.

Will my Vodafone phone be recycled?
Whichever of our partners you choose to sell your Vodafone phone to, it will either be reconditioned and sold on to a new buyer or carefully taken apart with its parts used to fix other devices.
Either way, you can rest assured that your Vodafone phone will not be thrown away or sent to landfill.
Do I need to do anything before sending my phone in?
We advise that you perform a factory reset of your phone, whether it’s locked or unlocked. This is easy and can be done through the Settings app on iPhones and Android devices. Be sure to back everything up first, though.
This will keep your data safe and make checking your device over easier for recyclers too.
Can I trade in a broken Vodafone phone?
Yes, you can trade in a broken Vodafone phone. Just choose the ‘broken’ section when telling us about your device.
Remember you won’t get as good a price as if the phone was new or in good working condition.
