Do you have an older cell phone laying around your home that you’re just not using? Instead of letting it collect dust, did you know that you could do some things with such as give it to a good cause or even make some money? If you’re shaking your head “yes” and you’re saying “tell me how!” then let me show you some techniques that you can use to get rid of that old phone:
Donate Them: The first thing that you can do is donate them to a local charity. Since most cell phones don’t need to have a contract, laws state that a phone should always call 911. This is a great way to donate to people that are truly in need. Be sure to look in your area because there are often drop-in boxes that you can use as well where you can just drop your phone off.
Sell Them: Look on websites such as eBay and see what you can get for your phone. You’ll be surprised at what you can get for your phone. Even if it’s older, you can get upwards of $20 to $30 for your phone at a minimum.
Recycle: There are companies out there that will accept your old cell phone and battery. This is a great way to not only recycle your phone battery but get money as well. Some stores will give you money while others will give you credit toward their store. This is a fantastic way to get something for nothing.
These are all great ways that you can donate a phone. If you have a phone, why let it collect dust? Get out there and try to use some of those tips. What you’re going to soon find out is that not only will you be able to get some money, you could also do others a great service as well.
