When it's Time to Upgrade What do you do with your Old Cell Phone

So you've decided to upgrade your cell phone. Well, what does that mean you should do with your old cell phone? You have many options, really. You could give it away to a family member. You could sell it on eBay. What I often do is keep mine as a backup in case something goes wrong with my new one. I do this ( as long as the old cell phone is compatible with my current service going forward)with my old phone when I upgrade.

I guess the most important thing is to do SOMETHING rather than just throwing your phone away. You or someone else can benefit. You can sell the phone and get money for it. You can recycle your cell phone ( some stores will accept your old phone when you upgrade)or donate it. Some police departments and local government collect old cell phones and modify them to only call 911. Then they donate emergency cell phones to the elderly. Whatever you do, know that just because you have outgrown your phone does not mean the old one is not valuable.
