What use is there for an old phone?
We like new things, because they’re better and improved. Every month new cell phone models are being introduced to the market and previous models are considered to be “out of date, and they’re all just lying around the house. They can still be of use though;
Extra emergency phone, according to FCC rules, any deactivated cell phone still should be able to call 911. So it’s handy to keep it where it’ll be conveniently available (like your car or in your office), just in case your primary phone breaks or runs out of battery. Just make sure it’s charged up.
As an Mp3 player, it’s perfect for rough activities especially since we won’t want our precious iPod damaged or scratched, do we or if we don’t want to drain the batteries of our primary phone, while still listening to music.
As a Wi-Fi phone, if your phone has Wi-Fi capabilities it’s still so useable, like instead of draining your primary phone’s battery you can use your old phone (since Wi-Fi uses your battery big time). And you can even make calls with no data service through Skype (or Fring, Truphone), just as long as you have Wi-Fi connection.
Portable Hard Drive, android phones connect to PCs easily for data transfer, which are good as storage devices. And you can just upgrade you SD card for older phones with low memory, and the only difference from a USB drive is that you can browse your files directly.
Sell or Donate, now if you just don’t really want it anymore or just don’t want to be seen with it, we can always sell it (or it’s parts) or donate the phones we’ve been stashing in our rooms to an organization that accepts used phones to donate for charity, like
Collect A Phone, that way we helped our community and made more space for our drawer.
