Claiming Bitcoin Cash from Mycelium with ElectronCash

I'm assuming you held Bitcoin before and during the fork on
that Mycelium wallet and your cell phone is an Android phone.

Here's what you do:

Setup your new non-Mycelium wallet. For Android for example
Greenbits, for iOS breadwallet, or your hardware wallet like
Ledger or Trezor. Write the recovery seed on paper and store
it securely with your other important documents.

Send all the bitcoins you have on your Mycelium wallet to
that new Bitcoin wallet.

Then install Coinomi on Android. Write the recovery seed on
paper and store it securely with your other important
documents. In it, create a Bitcoin Cash wallet. This step is
not absolutley necessary, it's just a better option over
ElectronCash which is going to be used to access the Bcash
balance.

Install ElectronCash on a computer and chose the option to
restore from a seed you already have. When you are at the
window to type in your seed, click on options and check
"BIP39 Seed". Then "OK" and then write your Mycelium seed
into the text box. When you're done, you should see the
Bcash balance matching your Bitcoin balance you previously
had in Mycelium.

Now you can send the whole Bcash balance to your Coinomi
wallet.

Retire the Mycelium seed. Don't throw it away, but don't
use it anymore.

You can exchange Bcash for Bitcoins at HitBTC.com or
ShapeShift.io.
