Mobile Phone Xchange

Mobile Phone Xchange (MPX) is another of the UK’s leading mobile phone recycling companies. As of February 2009 they have recycled a total of 183,000 handsets. Littlewoods shopping network has recently partnered with Mobile Phone Exchange to allow their customers to trade in their old phones. They will pay you up to £200 per mobile you send in and unlike other online recycling sites they will send payment direct to your bank account which can significantly speed up the process.

How it Works:

  1. You can either search for your handset by selecting the search option and typing in the model number or IMEI number. (IMEI is the long number starting 35 underneath your phones battery or by typing in the code *#06# on the main screen) Alternatively if you don’t know the model number you can select the manufacturer and look through the pictures to find your phone.
  2. Once you have found your phone, you will see the value next to it. If you are happy with this value simply click the sell phone link or add to basket and fill in the required details. If you have a non working or damaged phone you must still follow the normal process, you will be offered up to 80% of the normal value. The maximum amount of phones you can send in one order is 3. If you would like to sell more visit our business recycling page.
  3. Once you have completed the checkout, you have two options; the quickest is to use your own envelope / jiffy bag and simply print out an address label. If you don’t have a printer you can request a freepost padded envelope which is sent to you free of charge. It is recommended that you obtain a certificate of posting if sending the handset via the freepost address. For extra security, if you are sending higher value phones, you could send it recorded delivery.
  4. Once Mobile Phone Xchange receive your old phone you will be sent payment via Cheque or BACS  depending on which you opted for.


You have the option of either receiving your payment by BACS (Direct to Bank) or Cheque. BACS is the quickest method and will allow you to get your money in as little as 72 hours, your bank details will be deleted once your payment has been sent. If you request a cheque and have sent the phone with your own envelope, payment will be sent within 10 days.
