    Plug phone into computer click restore and it'll ask to create a backup click ok and it'll restore the phone. Then it'll reboot and ask do you want to restore from backup. At this point unplug the phone and hold the power button to power it off.

    You will need to send the USB cable only. They do not require the actual power adapter.

    Yes, it says that on their site, but the information is misleading. I actually contacted them and got the information direct. There is also a seperate page when you complete your recycle that says iPhone chargers must be included.

    When i contacted a lady there, she told me the USB cable was all that was required. I sent 2x iPhone 8GB 3G in with just the USB cables. I got £184 for each phone. This was a few weeks back now, got in there just in time, but have been missing my iPhone sorely.

    You do know Mazuma will give you more than o2? My 8gb 3G is worth £154 with them and £143 with o2.

    Just so you know
