Why should I recycle my mobile?

Not only will it get you some cold hard cash, recycling your old phone is far more environmentally friendly than just throwing it away. And the good news is that it’s super easy: just mail off your phone in the post pack the buyer sends you, and you’ll have your money within days.

I haven't heard of most these stores, are they legit?

We show deals offered by a variety of buyers and recyclers, from big names to smaller, more niche companies. Whatever the store, we carefully vet them and only display buyers on our site that we trust.

What happens to recycled phones?

Most are given a thorough spring clean, with all their parts repaired or replaced, then they’re sold on - either in the UK or emerging markets elsewhere. Other mobiles, including very old models, are completely gutted. Any valuable gold, platinum, nickel, or cadmium bits are extracted, ready to make brand new gadgets.

Freeze your phone price

The amount you can get for your old phone drops all the time - by up to £100 per year, in fact. Luckily, CompareMyMobile lets you freeze your offer for up to two weeks until you’re ready to sell.

Sell new, used, and broken phones

You’ll get the most money if your phone is brand new, but most stores are happy to shell out for used and broken phones as well.
