Donate Cell Phones: Who’s Using My Cell?

It’s a good question, and the short answer is: Someone who needs it.

When you donate cell phones, in “gently used” condition they’re cleaned up, tweaked to bring them back to full working order, and then they might be passed along to people in need—like victims of domestic violence who rely on their cell phones to be the only safe, private way to stay in contact with people they trust.

Let us put that another way: The cell phone you used to text your friends, play solitaire, or take selfies could become the cell phone that saves someone’s life.

We’ll wait a second for that to sink in, because it’s a big concept and we’re not done yet…

There’s more: The other gently used cell phones you donate are refurbished and resold for cold hard cash that we contribute to recognized organizations that help military families meet their expenses, help veterans find work, help kids get an education and stay healthy… and much, much more. Take a look at our Charities and Causes page and see the full list of partners we support.

Now we have a question for you: If you know that donating your cell phone could make that much of a difference in someone’s life, why wouldn’t you donate yours today?

You don’t have an answer to that one, do you?

Here’s what to do next:

  • Click on the top of this page where it says “Donate Your Phone.”
  • Print out your free USPS Pre-paid Shipping Label.
  • Pack your phone carefully in a padded envelope. (We like bio-poly envelopes that are recognized as a #5 plastic because they’re recyclable and biodegradable.)
  • Send it to us.
  • Feel good. You might just have saved someone’s life.
