    I've got the Nokia 5800 Music Xpress. It works but it sometimes switches itself off & needs fiddling about with sometimes to charge it. It's been like this since my son dipped it in coke, hence why I bought a new phone.

    Are those companies that buy your phone any good? Have you used any of them? If so which would be best.

    I can't sell it on ebay as it's faulty.

    What do you suggest?

    I've sold faulty phones on ebay. I think it's okay as long as you specify in the listing isn't it?

    A girl at worked sold her old mobile on one of those websites & she was very happy with the amount she rec'd & the service.

    I would assume it says online if it has to be in good working order.

    Mr Bear to be used Mazuma and got £130 for a 18months old iphone! You can choose the condition of your phone and then they send you a price and a bag to send the phone in!

    I have just looked and you would get £68 if its working or £27 non working. Read the description - i think you would get £68.

    I used Mazuma recently (twice) and found it quick and easy :)

    All sent to me clearly explained and all I had to do was pop to the Post office and post it to get proof of posting . Simples!
