Once you’ve had a phone for long enough, you get used to all its idiosyncrasies and, for better or for worse, often learn to love it. Changing phones offers greater potential, but it can also bring confusion and leave you spending a lot of time transferring data as well as simply learning how to use the new piece of technology. So how do you know whether or not the phone you are using really is right for what you now need?
With contract, this is going to be much easier. You can easily upgrade at the end of your contract to a phone that offers improved features and functionality and test it out to see if it is right for you. If it is, you can easily sell your mobile and get some extra money in your pocket along with a new phone. However, if it isn’t you can easily choose to get rid of the new phone instead, and get a great deal of money whilst also assuring yourself you do have the best phone for you.
With memory cards getting bigger and bigger, the improvement in phones is now often about added functionality rather than memory, which means if your current phone does everything you need it to do, an upgrade may not necessarily be worthwhile. When you sell your mobile, whether it is the new one or old one, you can often get enough to ensure that even if you change your mind further down the line, you will have likely have made enough to be able to afford a new one anyway.
When you recycle mobile phones you can get a surprisingly high amount of money, which can go towards extra memory cards for your current phone or simply to treating yourself. So why not try out a new phone regardless, as you can always recycle mobile phones either way and get more than you might have thought.
