Mazuma is great

For those of you in the UK, you may have seen the annoying Mazuma.com ads on TV. Essentially, you send your old cellphone in to them and they send you a check in return. I had a first-gen iPhone gathering dust after my recent upgrade (see below), so I decided to try it out.

I found out they would pay a remarkable £115 for the old model, so I requested the prepaid envelope, which arrived in about two days. I sent it in and literally got a confirmation email two days later and a check for the promised amount the next day! No hassle, exactly as they promised. I find it surprising they can sell on my phone for that much, but more power to them! Mazuma rocks.

damn, i was hoping that would become a hand-me-down much like your macbook pro.

That's amazing. I can't believe it has much used retail value. Maybe they are selling the components?

I mean what's the price difference between a new iPhone and if they resold that?
