Daily Tech Deal: Sell your phone to FONEBAK.com and benefit Children in Need
This one's for charity folks. Regenersis, Europe's largest mobile phone recycler, has teamed up for the fifth year with BBC Children in Need (programme airs 20 November 2009) to collect unwanted mobile phones for recycling, offering you the opportunity to donate to the charity via a new website.
It works in the usual way, except during the initial online evaluation you can choose to donate all or part of the value of your phone. After which you post your phone - via freepost - and receive the cash.
FONEBAK.com, apparently, makes sure that the correct procedures are in place when they receive your phone with data clearance on every handset, rigorous testing and refurbishment of all products to ensure they are fit for reuse in developing countries, and a zero landfill policy.
So if you have an old mobile lying around click on the link below and earn some money for Children in Need, visitors to the site can see how much has been raised by looking at the counter and if you're part of a school or business - able to collect quantities of handsets - FONEBAK will send out a courier to collect them free of charge.
