4 Excellent Reasons to Recycle Your Old Mobile Devices

Every year millions of new cell phones and tablets are purchased in the U.S.; there are also millions of mobile devices that are set aside. Many are shoved into desk drawers, closets and closets, while too many others find their way into landfills. If you have old iPods, iPads or smartphones collecting in your home, now is the time to recycle them. Here are four excellent reasons to recycle all your electronic devices.

  1. Be green. Recycling is the best way to reuse valuable materials instead of mining for new ones. Mobile devices contain gold, silver, plastic and other materials that can be recycled and reused, saving energy needed to mine or manufacture new materials.
  2. Toxic waste. Electronics emit toxins into the soil when they end up in landfills. They are not bio-degradable and add to the mountain of waste in our environment.
  3. De-clutter your home. Why are you still holding on to that first-generation iPhone or iPad? Make room in your home and storage spots by recycling all those old devices that you will never use again.
  4. Money in your wallet. Last, but not least, get some cash for those old mobile devices. There are quality mobile device repair chains that offer money for your old cell phones, tablets and even iPods. Why recycle them for free when you can get a little money back from your investment into new technology?

It is time to gather up all those mobile devices that are collecting dust and trade them in for a little extra cash for your wallet. Recycling is good for the environment and a great way to get money for your next mobile device purchase.

Options for Your Broken Mobile Device

Posted in iPhone Repairs

If you are like most people, you depend on your mobile device. It is your connection to your friends, family, work and the world. Unfortunately, these handy electronics are also expensive to replace when something goes wrong. Whether your smart phone was dropped into a hot tub or your tablet tangled with the pavement, you may have a device that is no longer connecting you to anything. Before you toss it in the trash, consider the other options.

Repair vs. Replace

Only a few years ago, it was almost unheard of to have a mobile device repaired. It was usually cheaper just to buy a new one than to have it fixed. However, the popularity of these devices has created a new industry around inexpensive repairs. Many common problems such as cracked screens or water damage can be repaired, fast and affordably. Before opting to replace your broken device, it is worth researching whether it can be fixed first.

Sell Your Broken Device

There are times when a device is beyond repair, making it necessary to buy a new phone or tablet. The good news is that because of the evolved repair industry, even devices that are not working can still be worth money. Some of the same companies that repair mobile devices will also buy the device if you decide it is not worth it to pay to have it repaired. This will give you a little money to put toward your new purchase.

Next time you find yourself with a phone or tablet that is on the blitz, find a company that offers both repair and buying options. Some even offer mobile repairs, giving you a chance to have your device fixed right away, or sell the device for some quick cash.
