We had the opportunity to have a chat with Pramod Kattel from Technocare Solutions in Dubai, UAE. Among other things, Pramod, who is the General Manager of technocare, he introduced the foneswap program in the UAE about nine months back- pretty much when Motorola introduced the Milestone in the UAE.
The foneswap program allows you to swap your current mobile phone and get some value back out of it towards the purchase of a new phone from their website. Foneswap does not have stand alone booth at stores, rather, they work along with either vendors or the stores themselves to create phone trade-in programs that are available from time to time at the outlets. On the other hand,you can call the toll free 800 7927 number of e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org
The following interview with Pramod explains why you should think about foneswap- not only for getting some value back for your phone, but also from an environmental point of view.
