Recycling cellphones

In the narrow and busy streets of shopping districts, you'll find more than a few of these itinerant traders. As cellphone is part of fashion these days, some are very eager to get rid of their (maybe only 3-month old) cellphones and be seen with the latest models. So this is how these traders get into business; they buy used cellphones and resell them, mostly in Mainland China, for profits. (PS. in this photo, the woman is the buyer...)

I'm with Bob, I had my old one for years. Almost never used it. I hate phones.

It looks like it is the same everywhere now. My cellphone is three years old; I am hopelessly out fashion.

Hi, thanks for the footprints...

Mark -- I don't know the price but I think it depends on how "new" your phone is...

To me, my cellphone is a tool, so mine really isn't the fashionable kind. :-)
