    If you're a business that wants to be green. You could always do what my company did. We used Full Circle Wireless and we resold our old equipment and managed to get some descent spending money.

    Well, I don't own a company and my company isn't currently interested in the program (that, and they don't know about it). 'sides most of the sites like the one you listed only cater to businesses or people with new phones rather than the dinosaurs I have lying in my backyard.

    Well, if that's the case. Resell them anyways, even if it's just a little, it's still worth thing since these companies tend to send you shipping boxes.

    You could also just donate if you just want to get rid of them. Non-profits usually have sites that accept cell phones as contributions instead of money. I know electronic stores like Best Buy and Radio Shack sometimes have bins lined up near the exit that accept donations.

    Sounds good. Maybe I'll try it.

    Reselling them is one idea.. but you can also give them to someone you knew that needs it but can't afford to buy.. maybe a close friend or a relative.. there no other great felling than to receive a thank you from someone...isnt?..

    Dude, you sound like an afterschool special. :P

    I actually sold my phones to a buyback nearby called Full Circle Wireless. Full Circle Wireless Since I didn't want to have to keep running back and forth to sell my phones individually and the pricing was reasonable. Plus, they shipped me a free FedEx lable. I actually kept one of my camera phones and am not attempting to convert it into a spy camera.

    You can reselling them. And I also met someone or some phone stores who buy second-hand phones. Maybe they have better ideas about old phones. I guess they might take down the chips and fix it to a new shield. Then sell these phones as the new one?
