The nature of mobile phones means that they are relatively likely to get damaged. Damage can take many forms, you might crack the screen, expose your device to water or experience a software problem. As mobiles become more central to our personal and working lives, they are used more frequently and so are more likely to get damaged.
Also, Smartphones rely on ever more sophisticated software, which can experience problems. Manufacturers do all they can to protect phones from hardware or software problems; however, a degree of fragility is the price we pay for super-advanced technology.
But what should you do if you damage your old phone? If your phone is expensive then you might have mobile phone insurance, and so, depending on the nature of your cover, you can get a replacement phone. However, mobile phone insurance is additional cost, and not everyone has it.
Even without insurance there are ways to recoup some of the loss of a damaged phone. For instance, you might choose to recycle mobile phone devices that have become damaged. Phone recycling companies usually offer a cash reward, and, depending on the degree of damage and the specific model of your phone, you can make real money.
More than this, and next time you want to “sell my blackberry” due to damage, you don’t have to worry about finding a willing buyer. Phone recycling companies can make use out of faulty mobiles, because the components in phones have some inherent value.
