Who is Megafone?
Megafone is a mobile phone and tablet recycler and distributor. We recycle thousands of used devices annually, repairing and refurbishing as many as we can and ultimately keeping good technology in use and out of landfill. Where a device is beyond repair, we maximise the number of spare parts harvested from old phones and tablets for the repair industry, again with the objective of reusing as much as possible and reducing the amount of electronic waste (WEEE).
Why is Megafone different?
We pay above average market rates for iPhones, iPads and Samsung devices and we won’t gouge you on price. We know that many buy back companies, including some of the big names (you know who you are!)

Once we get your phone, we’ll check it and test it and then process your payment.
Is it safe to sell my iphone?
Totally safe! All of your data is encrypted on your device already and our simple how simple guide explains how to fully erase it and return your phone to factory settings. We’ll provide you with a Freepost label to send your phone to us, which includes tracking and insurance. When we receive your phone or tablet, we fully erase it again to make sure all personal data is permanently and irreversibly deleted. This is done with a specialist cryptographic and DOD3 level erasure software, meaning that once we reprocess and recycle your device, it would be impossible to retrieve any of your data.
