About Release

Unfortunately, far too many great cell phones are scrapped – mostly because there is a lot of money to be made from selling new ones, but also because we, as consumers, don’t know how great used cell phones actually are. This is something Release want to challenge!

Release is the first, and only, mobile company in Norway that sells used cell phones exclusively. We fight to make used cell phones your natural first choice. In that way, you save both money and the environment. Together, we contribute to extending the lifespan of cell phones, which in turn leads to reduced waste of electronics and lower consumption of minerals and elements threatened with extinction. That is why one of our most important services is mobile repair. If you repair your cell phone when something no longer works, you will be able to enjoy the high quality for a much longer time! Together with our Teknikmagasinet stores, we offer mobile phone repair nationwide.

Our goal is to make it easy and safe for you to choose used. 


Release was established the summer of 2020. The company started out as Grønnmobil, a company that saw the light of day in 2011. The two businesses are now run by the same company with joint management. In 2022, Release bought the store chain – Teknikmagasinet – with over 65 stores located in both Norway and Sweden.

You will find our head office in Sandefjord. There you will also find our main warehouse, where the cell phones are being set up and prepared before dispatched to new customers. This is also where cell phones that are at the end of their lifespan, is recycled as e-waste in a proper manner.
