Cell Phones Are Now Worth More at CellForCash.com
21, 2005 PRWEB
People who have old cell phones
they are not using can now sell them for more money; theCellForCash.com
website has the details.
CellForCash.com, a web site that pays
cash for old, unwanted cell phones, announced today it will
increase the price it pays for more than 350 cell phone models,
The new pricing policy reflects the competitive nature of the
used cell phone market, and indicates that CellForCash.com
intends to maintain its leadership position in the industry,
according to James Mosieur, chief executive officer of RMS
Communications Group Inc., CellForCash.com’s parent company.
“CellForCash.com is the leader in the cell phone recycling/remarketing
industry, and it pioneered the idea of buying used cell phones
over the Internet for cash,” Mosieur said. “This
enhanced pricing policy indicates that we intend to maintain
our leadership position and give all the value we possibly
can for good used cell phones.”
CellForCash.com pays cash for more than 500 different models
of used cell phones. The pricing increase applies to more than
350 of those phone models, well over half of the models that
CellForCash.,com will buy.
CellForCash.com has been buying used cell phones for the past
three years, Mosieur said. The company has purchased more than
200,000 used cell phones in that time.
When CellForCash.com was founded in 2002, it was the first
such web site to offer cash for used cell phones, and it remains
the industry leader by a comfortable margin. CellForCash.com
pays cash for the old cell phones, pays for their shipping,
and then recycles and re-markets them throughout the world.
The company recycles more than 75,000 used cell phones every
The web site pays anywhere from a few dollars to well over
$100 for the used phones. The new pricing increases will vary
from model to model, Mosieur said. Clients should visit www.CellForCash.com to
see how much cash is being offered for their particular phones.
While CellForCash.com was the first web site to be developed
by RMS, a number of others have followed. One, www.WirelessFundraiser.com,
provides cash to non-profit organizations that collect and
send in old cell phones. Another, www.RecycleForUS.com,
is an environmental initiative that helps companies, government
agencies and other groups and individuals collect and recycle
old cell phones. The newest RMS website, www.911CellPhoneBank.com,
donates about 1,000 cell phones every month to law enforcement
and other agencies for use as 911 emergency phones.
CellForCash.com pays cash for used cell phones, and makes the
process simple by displaying the phones it will buy and the
prices it will pay for them right on the web site. It also
provides sellers with already-addressed, postage-paid mailing
boxes. Its QuickShip option makes the process even faster.

Cell Phone Recycling To Benefit Special Olympics
16, 2005 White Plains, NY
City of White Plains and the Special Olympics are teaming up
to benefit Special Olympians through the White Plains "Recycle
for the Special Olympics" initiative.
Beginning on November 15 and continuing through January 15, 2006, the City of White Plains will participate in a used cell phone donation drive that is expected to net more than 1200 used cell phones. RMS
Communications Group will pay the Special Olympics as much as US$100 for each phone recycled through the program (the average is US $9 per recycled cell phone).
Older model and used cell phones are still of value, containing parts that can be refurbished and resold. It is believed that 30 million phones are lying idle in the hands of consumers right now. By 2005, it is estimated that 130 million cell phones will be retired each year in the United States.
for Special Olympics' initiative is a creative and effective way to assist the athletes competing in the Special Olympics. Fostering a spirit of volunteerism and civic responsibility in our children is something that creates a stronger community. The children of the Youth Council and the Youth Bureau will be working diligently to raise as many donations of cell phones as possible. Virtually everyone we know is upgrading their phones, and donating the old model will have an impact upon thousands of Special Olympians. I am proud to be involved, and look forward to seeing how much of a contribution White Plains can make to the Special
Olympics", White Plains Mayor Joseph Delfino stated.

outlets throughout Northern California, announced today it
will partner with RecycleForCalifornia.com to collect used
cellular phones at all its locations throughout the state.
RecycleforCalifornia.com, an industry-funded statewide cell

collected cell phone that has a re-marketable value, and 50%
of the funds raised will go to support local charities. Phones
that are not re-marketable may be donated to shelters, senior
groups or other emergency services, or will be recycled in
an environmentally responsible manner.
"We're very excited about this program," said Matt Fidiam,

but it also assists in preserving the environment and bringing
communications to people who could not otherwise afford it."
Conrad Melancon, program director for RecycleForCalifornia.com,
said there are more that 500 million used cellular phones in
the U.S., with 100 million more being replaced each year.
"This cellular phone collection program will help raise money

phones will be sent oversees to countries where a cellular
phone may be the only means of long distance communications."
All cell phones will be accepted under the program. Phones
should be deactivated and personal information should be removed
prior to being turned in at any Parrot Cellular location.
