A TNS Sofres study reports that 56% of French people who plan to buy a phone in the next six months are considering giving away or reselling their old model. They are 66% to declare themselves ” very attentive to the price of their next phone, even if it means reselling the previous one “.

Figures that have prompted operators to react: Bouygues Telecom has just announced a partnership with the site of purchase-resale Recommerce Solutions, to offer professionals to easily resell their terminals. The resale trend of mobile phones could strengthen with the switch to the 4G network, which is due to extend into 2014.
