Repurpose Your Old Mobile Phone

We tend to live in a throwaway society. When the latest phone model comes out, your old mobile phone lies forgotten at best, or most likely, gets thrown on the scrapheap. It doesn’t have to be so. In fact, there are a number of great ideas for putting your old mobile phone to use that you should definitely consider before throwing it in a drawer.

How to Repurpose Your Phone

If you really don’t want to have anything more to do with your old phone, but you’d rather not just throw it out, you can donate it to a charity, recycle it, or even sell it. However, this is being a little short-sighted. Your old phone is most likely still in good working order, so why not put it to work for you.

If you are a business owner either online or offline repurpose your old mobile phone as a dedicated, strictly business-only phone. To keep things simple and easy, get a pay-as-you-go SIM card – in fact, our free Asda SIM card is ideal for this purpose – and use your old phone for all incoming calls and texts.

This has many advantages. You’ll no longer have personal calls cluttering up your time on your business phone. Nuisance calls will also be eliminated, thereby clearly dedicating one phone (the old one) for business only, and your other phone (the new one) for personal and social matters only.

For many small business owners, having just one phone is indeed convenient, but it’s never a good idea to mix business with pleasure. When a friend calls to discuss weekend plans, for example, do you know for certain that there are no potential clients trying to get through?

A missed call, because your phone is locked out through social chatter, can be lost business, and this is why a dedicated business phone will always make the most sense. Transforming your old mobile phone into a pay-as-you-go business phone with one of our free SIM cards will instantly separate business and social activities, giving you the best of both worlds.

You wouldn’t dream of letting your personal phone’s battery drain, so don’t do it with your business phone either. Keep it full charged at all times. Don’t lock it away either; keep it close and in easy reach at all times, and don’t let your kids play with it – ever. Your old mobile phone, rejuvenated with one of our free Asda SIM cards, can become a very valuable asset for your business.
