Default Anyone used cash for phones websites?

Looking at getting rid of my N95 8GB, there's two places that I've found so far that will buy your old phones:

http://www.mazumamobile.com.au - and: http://www.cashforphones.com.au

Just wary about these places, anyone here used them before?

Agreed, go to the extra effort and actually try and sell your old phone.

Well going rate for an n95 8Gb on ebay is $150, so offering me $128 isn't that bad..

at least these sites are actually paying you for the phone.... you get those other sites which basically take the phone off you for free in the interest of making the world a nicer place, apparantly.

Considered trying to fix it yourself? if its a cracked screen or LCD problem then parts are fairly cheap through dealextreme.com or other similar sites. need to be a bit handy though I guess.

Wow.. I just realised I have heaps of broken / dodgy Blackberry 9000s, Nokia E51s and 6120s here at work... I think I just found a use for them.
