Review by Dee

Sent in phone via recorded delivery and they claim they have not received it. Post office has no tracking information other than when I dropped it off. Emails to Simply Drop go unanswered. So it appears that my phone is lost and I am now out of pocket. I will never ever use this shower again. Should have stuck to ebay. I am fuming.

Easy way to cash in some old kit

Review by Anon

I went into a phones4u store and they recommended I use comparemymobile instead of their own solution! So trusted this site from the outset and chose this recycler. Ordered my sales freepost information in the morning and got it through the post box in a day.

Review by Anon

They did what they said they would which makes them good in my books. Everything went well, three days I had payment.

Review by Anon

Once you’ve found you device click on it, to be taken to a page where you can select the condition of your phone. Simply drop gives you a full definition of what constitutes a working or non-working phone to avoid confusion.

If you’re happy with your quote then simply select how you’d like to be paid – either by payment or bank transfer. These are two of the quickest ways to be paid, so although there’s no cheque payment option, the money will be with you more quickly.

What happens to your phone next? Well Simply Drop will ensure it’s put to better use – either being recycled for part within EU guidelines or refurbished to be sent on for a second life in a third world country.

Simply Drop also promises to help the fight against smartphone theft – it works with government bodies and the National Crime unit to report any phones sent into them which they believe to be stolen.
