Founded in 1975 by Bill Gates and Paul Allen, Microsoft are one of the best-known organisations in the world. Their range of personal computers, consumer electronics and computer software are used across the globe and within a huge range of industries.
Microsoft are arguably best known for their range of computer products and services. They are associated with many pieces of software which include Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. However, Microsoft have also made steps into the gaming industry with the Xbox, and have released several series of smartphones.
As things stand, Apple are the market leaders when it comes to smartphone sales each year, and companies such as LG and Microsoft are currently trailing behind. That does not stop them from competing however, and it may only be a matter of time before the latter two organisations reach the same level. As there are so many handsets available on the market, owners of Microsoft devices such as the Lumia 550 might consider trading in their current devices for a newer one.
OnRecycle offer assistance with unwanted smartphones. We have teamed up with major recyclers from around the world to provide our customers with a platform on which to sell their Microsoft Lumia 550. We know what it's like to have an unwanted smartphone, or one that is out of date, and so we've provided a way for consumers to cash them in. This in turn enables them to go out and buy a device of their choosing.
The OnRecycle Solution
We have spent the time and effort finding the best buyers for your unwanted handset, so that you don't have to! Having established relationships with these buyers, we have added them onto our database, and keep up to date with the prices that they are prepared to offer you for your Lumia 550. All you need to do to obtain a list of these quotations is enter your details onto our system, and it automatically provides you with a list of buyers for you to sell to. It couldn't be easier!
Once you're on our website, simply enter the details of your phone into the search box at the top of each screen. Having typed in your Lumia 550, you will enter another screen where you are asked to tell us the condition of your phone, (working, new or broken) and whether or not the phone is locked to a specific network. These details will affect the value of your phone, so it is important that you complete them honestly.
Once we have these information, we can give you an accurate list of buyers - the list will appear below the details you have entered. At the very top of the list you'll see our recommended recyclers, followed by other options below. The list can be customised to suit your circumstances. If you are mostly interested in price, click on the 'price' field and the highest will appear first. If you want to do business with a company that will pay you instantly, click on the 'payment period' field. The final field that you can click on and organise is the 'user rating' field.
Clicking on this field enables you to locate recyclers who are the most reputable. Most of them will have been rated by users who were in a similar position to you. Not only can you view the star rating through the system, but there is also a link to read full reviews. Take the time to read some of these, as this will give you piece of mind on who you are selling to. You may also decide to check the company for yourself. A quick internet search will lead you to their website, where perhaps you can find out how long they have been trading for. It is important that you check these additional details before selling, in order to avoid disappointment.
Once you have decided on a seller, you are free to click on the 'sell now' button so that you can complete the process! If you are offered the option, we recommend that you sell through OnRecycle's system, as this means you'll have access to our guidance should it be needed. Furthermore, you can also rest assured that when it comes to entering your bank details, you are doing so through a secure system.
The most exciting part of all is receiving the cash: you are now free to shop for your new handset! When doing so, it can be helpful to compare potential phones against your existing Lumia 550. Here is our review of the handset, enabling you to check the spec.
