Virgin Mobile USA today announced Virgin Mobile Buyback, an effort that will reward customers who choose to recycle their old phones. Virgin Mobile Buyback offers new and existing customers credits (in dollar amounts) that can be used to purchase a new device or pay for service if they turn in an old device. Customers can use Virgin's web site to get a quote for how much their device is worth, though Virgin also published a list of hundreds of devices and the amount of credit it will reward for them. Credit amounts range from just $5 for some old feature phones to more than $300 for newer iPhones. According to Virgin, most phones that are turned in will be reused. Those that cannot be reconditioned will be recycled responsibly. Virgin Mobile Buyback is available to any Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk, Paylo, or Assurance plan and does not incur any additional fees.
