    Has anyone used Envirofone or Mazumamobile? I wanna cash in my Nokia for £85 but was wondering how long does it take and is it trustworthy? Thanks.

    ive used both before!
    pretty much the same deal with both of them. u fill in the online form, they post u an envelope, u send them the phone then recieve ur check in the post.
    get proof of postage from the post office just incase it goes missing, that way i think its insured for £50 (hey it better than nothing)
    go with witchever one is offering the most money! i think their is even a comparison site for trading in old mobiles!

    Ah okay, Mazuma it is then. One last question, the website doesnt mention if the phones locked or not, just that it turns on and off, the screen works and that it can make calls. Mine can do that, but its locked.. Is that a problem?

    What do they actually do with these old phones?

    I don't see where the value is for the company...

    sold in alot of south american and asian countries, who either sell them to the population, or take them apart and re-use the electrics.

    i used mazuma, theyll offer you less money for fone if its broken
    the great thing is u dont really do anything,
    just sign up, they send you a prepaid envelope
    you put em in, they tell you the change in price if any are broken
    job done
    dont forget to take any sim or memory cards out
