Retro mobile handsets selling for hundreds

A recent survey has revealed that 15 million Brits have old mobile phone handsets worth up to hundreds of pounds lying around their homes.

Old mobiles such as Motorola, Nokia and Sony Ericsson models are now deemed to be “classics” and even “antiques”, with people willing to pay a small fortune for them on listing sites like eBay.

However, only 17 percent of us would sell our old phones, which means many of us are missing out on extra cash.

Mobile phone expert Ben Wood, from CCS Insight, who has collected nearly 1000 mobile phones in the last 30 years said: “We all remember our first mobile phones, whether it was the iconic brick-sized Motorola DynaTAC used by Gordon Gekko in Wall Street, a Samsung that flipped open, or the noughties manufacturer of choice, Nokia.

“It’s now over 30 years since the first mobile phone became commercially available and a whole generation of people have owned a host of different handsets over the years.

“Finding an old handset in the back of a drawer can be an evocative experience: people tend to remember the phone they had during significant periods in their lives, such as a certain job or a particularly memorable holiday. It’s interesting that a piece of technology can induce sentimental feelings in many people.”
