Donate Your Old Cell Phone to Benefit Others
There are many ways to recycle your old cell phones so that they will benefit someone else. Many charitable organizations make it super easy and safe.
Medic Mobile safely recycles your phone or tablet to fund healthcare programs in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Each smartphone donated and recycled funds up to 10 new phones for health workers in 21 countries around the world. Health workers use the phones to register pregnancies, track disease outbreaks faster, monitor essential medicine stock and communicate about emergencies. Free mailing label makes it easy to print and send.
Second Wave Recycling lets you choose the Charity of your choice and then just print a free mailing label, ship off your phone and they take care of cleaning, wiping the memory, and getting money to the charity you selected.
Other Ways to Make Good Use of An old Phone:
Use Your Old Cell Phone for International Travel
Sell It to Amazon
You could sell your device as an independent seller on Amazon, but the easier path is to let Amazon sell it for you. You can use Amazon’s trade-in service to get an estimate based on your phone’s capacity, finish, and condition. Amazon gives you a mailing label, you send in the phone, then Amazon gives you a gift card for the prearranged amount. The company sells the phone to some stranger for a profit, and you’re left with a chunk of change to spend on toilet paper, AA batteries, and Men’s Poky.
Other places to sell:
SwiftTechBuy – is another highly-rated online channel that buys back phones and tablets. They make it super easy – just enter the model of your device and you’ll get an immediate quote + a free shipping label and as soon as your device is received, payment is issued the same day.
An Old iPhone Transforms to an Apple TV Remote
That latest Apple TV remote is kinda not great, huh? In the App Store, there is an Apple TV Remote app that can be download on your device, turning your old iPhone into a fancy touchscreen remote. Using the keyboard to search for shows is an immediate step up. If you have an older version of the Apple TV, you also don’t have the ability to use Siri with it. The app adds the Siri functionality—just speak into your phone to find shows and issue commands via voice. If you do this, register the fingerprints of everyone in your house so anyone can unlock it.
Home A/V Remote
Mount your old phone to the wall and leave the Sonos app open all the time. Or just load it with music and sign in to all your streaming accounts, then throw music to AirPlay, Bluetooth, or Sonos speakers in your home. Again, if you do this, register the fingerprints of everyone in your house.
