Recent research has found that 84% of homes in Britain have at least one old mobile phone knocking about. Also great news for Smartphone users is that that the payout for old handsets has risen 68% in the last month.

A further 60% of people don;t even bother recycling their old phones online and simply opt to giving it to a member of their friends or family.

The following 5 handsets would get you the most cash this year they are the iPhone 4 valued at £390, the 32GB iPhone 3GS for £249, 16GB iPhone 3GS for £240, the HTC Desire for £201 and the Blackberry Bold 9700 for £200.
