Every year upgrades or damage make as many as 100 million cell phones obsolete!
- Up to 75 percent of obsolete phones are stockpiled in drawers, including the battery and the charger.
- Cell phones in working condition are often donated to people with disabilities or shelters for battered women, as any phone is capable of dialing 911 regardless of its service.
- Most major providers collect old phones, batteries & chargers to donate.
