Everyone knows that the best part about buying a new Smartphone is getting the newest technology. Just like your previous phone at the time you bought it was also the latest and greatest, but it was also probably a pretty penny. Most Smartphones today run a pretty steep price tag of around $100-$250 and that’s during a contract renewal. Usually, MSRP value will double that price or possibly triple it. Therefore, it may seem silly to just throw away a perfectly good phone when you get a new one. There are options though. Some people will choose to sell their phone for a decreased used market value price so they at least can get a little bit of their money back. Some will donate the phone to a worthy cause or recycle it to be properly disposed of instead of storing it or throwing it in the trash. Well, something a little more interesting that many people are doing is repurposing their Smartphone.
Without a cell phone carrier to activate the plan you cannot use the Smartphone for calling or texting, but there still is so much that it can be used for still. A Smartphone will still allow you to use apps as long as you are in a Wi-Fi hotspot. You can also use the camera or play music that is stored on the phone without Wi-Fi. So gift the used Smartphone to a child or use it in a new way. Then, you keep the value and continue to use it without feeling the guilt of tossing out a perfectly good piece of technology.
