I know this rant blog is cynical in theme, but after the experience I just had with eCycle Best, a positive post was absolutely warranted.
After a month of trying to sell my old Android phone through Craigslist.org, Facebook and eBay I came to the conclusion that I’d rather throw my old phone off a pier than deal with hassle and feeling of getting ripped off by the offers I received. Talk about killing a day trying to sell your old electronics!
As I began to strap some explosive household chemicals to the phone for what I hoped to be an honorable cellphone death, a buddy of mine texted me and mentioned that he sold his phone to this “Ecycle Best” service. I found their website and punched in all my phone info (condition, etc), got a killer quote too. My exact words were “are you frick’n kidding me”?
Same day, I stuck my phone in the mail and bid it farewell forever.
A week and $350 later, I’ve got cash in my hand and am one happy dude. I hope they’re still around when my prison time is up with my current Android phone (2 years), else, future generations may find a Razr at the bottom of the ocean next to the pier.
