Orange has now jumped on the recycling bandwagon by offering cash for unwanted mobile phones. The Recycle & Reward scheme has been launched across all Orange stores and enables customers from any network to walk in with their old phones and find out their monetary value before deciding whether to cash in on them or not. If they choose to take the money they hand over their unwanted phone and will receive a cheque within seven days (assuming the current postal strike is sorted by then we presume). To give you an idea of what you can expect for your unwanted phones, Orange is offering £85 for a working Nokia N95, £75 for a Sony Ericsson C905 and £95 for a Samsung SCH 900. In addition customers can also recycle other electrical devices including laptops and mp3 players.
With many people refraining from recycling their handsets due to the content stored on them, Orange has also launched the Copy and Keep service. Orange care customers can walk into a store and have all their contacts, music and photos transferred for them to their new mobile. For those not signed up to the Orange care service it will cost them £6.
