Daily Q&A: Where can I sell or donate my old cell phone?

Where can I sell or donate my old cell phone?

There are a number of ways you can use your old cell phone to help someone else, including donating to domestic violence or homeless shelters. They are sometimes made available to those in need for emergencies because even if they are not on a service plan, they can be used to call 911.

Some other possibilities include suggestions from Kiplinger.com, such as selling your old cell phone on www.flipswap.com, donating by finding a drop off location at www.recellular.com or recycling it at www.recyclewirelessphones.com.
