What happens to the old mobile phones in these days?I had this question or rather say, curiosity for a long time in my mind, that what happens to these numerous old mobile phones which people are discarding when they switch to a better one with newer technology and latest features?
I know there are markets for old phones, their spare parts and so on. Even refurbished phones have their own target buyers, but how many people buy them? The number in which the phones are getting manufactured, is it possible that they get sold out in the same frequency?
Moreover when some people are changing phones just to be ahead of fashion, others go for a change simply to avail the benefits. The phones are changing fast and it has become a craze to be on the track with the latest handset in your hand.
Please share your knowledge on this and it would be better if we include in the discussion, the recycling process of these phones to make people aware of the environmental issues as well.
