What to do with that old mobile phone?

Thinking about getting a fancy new cell phone? Check your service contract. If it's more than two years old, you may be entitled to a new phone for a small fee or even for free, depending on the brand and model you choose. 

And your current phone could be worth a few hundred dollars that would help cut the cost of a new one. Even an old phone stashed in a drawer could have some value. 

Mobile phone manufacturers, service providers and vendors all have programs that let you swap your present phone for a better one. And even if your contract hasn't expired, you might still be able to trade up.

Apple recently launched a trade-in program at its Apple stores. Bring any older iPhone to the store and an employee will determine the trade-in value of the phone and offer you a deal on a new one. Other services will evaluate your phone and offer you a price on their websites.
