New Website Helps Consumers Turn Old Cellphones into Cash 

A Florida company makes it easy for consumers to get cash for used cellphones that could otherwise pollute landfills.
 

New Website Helps Consumers Turn Old Cellphones into Cash
 
"Most people believe their old cellphone holds some value but have no way of knowing how much. When consumers sign up for a new wireless plan they walk away with an old cellphone that is typically worth something. CellForCash.com makes it easy to get a little cash and help the environment."
 James Mosieur
CEO of RMS Communications Group, Inc.

Before you throw away those old cellphones you have stuffed in your desk drawer, you might want to look at the facts. According to INFORM, INC., by 2005, about 130 million cellphones will be retired annually in the US. And because of their small size they are more likely to be thrown in the trash and ultimately pose threats to the environment and public health.

RMS Communications Group, Inc. has come up with an alternative that will help the environment and put a little cash in the wireless users' pocket. Using their new website, www.cellforcash.com, consumers can identify their old cellphones, determine their value and request a shipping box with a return postage paid label. The consumer returns the box with the cellphones inside, and RMS sends a check for the value of the cellphones within a couple of weeks.

"Most people believe their old cellphone holds some value but have no way of knowing how much" says James Mosieur, CEO of RMS. "When consumers sign up for a new wireless plan they walk away with an old cellphone that is typically worth something. CellForCash.com makes it easy to get a little cash and help the environment."

Since 1985 RMS has been a leading wireless wholesaler with customers all over the world. They support the wireless industry with innovative services designed to help service providers, wireless agents and corporate customers get the most out of their wireless devices. More information on RMS is available at www.rmscomm.com.
