Old mobiles

Can someone please tell me what happens to all the mobile traded under the "new phone feeling" or those returned at end of lease?

I am curious if they go to landfil, charities or are they available for purchase somewhere? 

 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Old mobiles

Unless you worked in Telstra logistics, any answer is an educated guess. I'm reasonably sure that they are bought by the same company Apple use for trade-off. I believe that they export them.
A "Like" is always appreciated. If my advice is a solution, please mark it. I'm not a Telstra employee.
