With all these brand spankin' new cell phones set up at the booths of CES, with the bright lights of the tradeshow floor glinting off their scratch-free surfaces, it's easy to ignore the idea of buying used. That's why we're happy Recellular is back at this year's CES, showing off some only slightly older cell phones, in practically brand new condition, that have been diverted from landfills and recycling plants. The company is helping to show that buying used doesn't mean giving up quality.
Recellular's booth featured shelves of refurbished and retail-ready cell phones, showing just how fancy a used cell phone can be. It also pointed out the importance of sending cell phones in for recycling, rather than keeping it in a drawer where it becomes obsolete, or tossing it in the trash where it becomes toxic.
Recellular is one of the largest re-sellers of cell phones, and purchasing from them or selling your phone to them is a very easy process.
