If a mobile is locked, does that affect its recycle value?

Usually, yes. But normally only by the cost of getting it unlocked (around a tenner)

Yes it does. If you are going to sell on Ebay you will get a much higher price for unlocked version. Probably a psychological thing.

Of course, if mobile costs £20 itself, there is no point to get it unlocked for £10.
Above applies only for prices above £100+
