Whether you are on contract or pay as you go, it is not always possible to get the phone that you want. For instance, with contracts, certain companies will offer specific phones for free simply because they were given a deal by the manufacturers and will therefore push these and raise the prices of other phones to make the most amount of money possible.
However, whatever the situation, you can often find you can easily get the exact phone you want without having to spend much money at all. If you are offered a good phone by your provider for free, but the one you want will incur a huge cost, simply accept the free phone and then look into mobile phone recycling. You will usually find that the money you can get through mobile phone recycling is quite significant and will mean that you have to put very little money on top to afford the exact phone you want.
Likewise, with pay as you go, many people find themselves hanging onto the same phone for years on end simply because new phone are far too expensive for them. However, if you recycle mobile phones after just a year or two, you will again have to put very little on top to find yourself with a brand new, state of the art phone, meaning that pay as you go suddenly becomes even easier, and usually even more cost-effective than contracts.
Few people actually decide to recycle mobile phones, opting instead to just put them in a drawer and forget all about them. However, by selling it on you will find that you can get the exact phone you want every time, or if the phone that you want happens to be totally free anyway, then you just end up with some cash in your pocket.
