usually i buy a new cellphone only on the case that my old one is broken or lose.so maybe i don't encounter this problem.but if i meet this issue,i think maybe i will give my old one to other or sell cheaply.

I usually sell the old one. Sometimes i keep them as a back up, but usually i have insurance on my newest phone so i mainly just sell them.

I don't usually upgrade phone units, I buy a new mobile unit only when my old phone is already not working. I usually just throw away the old one.

Because i have two sim card, i use the new one specially to access internet, and the old one to call and text message, I buy the new one because it can access internet faster the the old one.

personally I sell it, or give it to a family member if they want to upgrade and then I sell their old phone, you can get some good money for various phones depending on what phone it is. But I only ever sell it privately as there companies that buy your phone from you and you get a fraction of what the phone is worth.

When i get a new mobile phone, i normally either see if anyone else like family and friends want it, if not i would probably sell it, or just recycle it.

It depends sometimes I trade it in. It just really depends on the circumstances. i am with the same provider so I usaually just trade the phone in when I get a new model. It just really depends on what I am going to do and what I want to to do with it. I think the cellphone is something that is just going to be thrown out anywya.

I usually try and sell the old one. Or if I know someone close who can use it I'll just give it to them. I'm in that situation right now as a matter of fact. I got a new cell phone a few weeks back and now I'm trying to sell my older one. Since everyone around me already has a cell phone. Small world.

I recycle it for money on a website which gives you well good prices on old phones which they then recycle and I think fix and remake it like into an ipod or something I dunno, I just recycle it to get money and then they send it through paypal to me. Which is the easiest way tbh.
