Trade in your old phone or tablet to help out military members

If you have an old cell phone or tablet you don't use anymore, it could help a soldier deployed overseas communicate with loved ones back home.

Any wireless customer, regardless of carrier, can take an old cell phone or tablet to a local AT&T-owned store and have the value of the device donated to Cell Phones for Soldiers (CPFS).

CPFS is a nonprofit organization that provides deployed and returning troops with cost-free methods to communicate with family while serving in the military.

Here's how to trade in a device:

• Wipe the personal data from the device by following the steps at att.com/ecospace and restore the device to factory settings.

• Bring in old devices to any AT&T-owned store. The store will calculate the trade-in value based on make, model and condition.

• Choose to donate to AT&T's supported Cell Phones for Soldiers organization.

AT&T will then send in the old devices to be reused or recycled.
