Do you throw them away? Sell it? Or keep it as a spare phone? When do you keep it and when do you sell it?

No. I do not throw them away. If it is kaput, I'll still keep it. For what? I do not know. If it has a high trade in value, I would do that when i purchase a new handphone. If it is not, I'll just give it to my sister or brother.

my old cellphones return to its original box(yes! i even keep the box!) and put them away. i might take them for granted now, but in a few years, you'd be fascinated to see one.

no, I don't throw them away, I usually sell it to the shop where I can buy a new model from them at the same time. but if no shop wants to buy it, I will keep it.

I have Ericcson GF388, is the old fashion of handphone. It produced year of 2000 and until now it still can be used. I like the model, black and strong. I use it every day, maybe only the charger is broken. My friend want to buy mine with expensive price, but until now I don't give it him yet.

Hi friend, This is nice question... I am now using nokia 6233. My old phone is nokia 3200.. I give my old phone to my father.. It is a small story.. My father is working in UAE.. He got leave to visit home. So i called him.. I know he was using an old model of sony ericsson.. I said him to update his phone to nokia 6233.. Because that type of phone is not using by anyone.. And he agree that.. He came with nokia 6233.. Then i take that phone and give my old phone to him, and said that enough to make and receive call.. Thus i have got a good phone nokia 6233.. Here everyone upgrade their phone by giving the old phones to their near ones... Selling is not familiar here.. But every one was upgrading their phone continuously because new models are continuously coming in markets.. Anyway i am concluding... Thank you...

I get a new phone every two years. My kids get the old ones because they can still call 911 on them if necessary. They can't wait to get my current phone since it has a camera.

Usually with my old cell phone, i just sell it and then buy a new one. Or i just give it to my brother if he wants :) What do you do then with your old cellphone?

I usually sell it since it could help us on reducing our budget for buying a new phone.

I had several old cellphones sold to friends who still want them. I sold them at a cheaper price since it has been used for many years and the battery is worn out already. I do not keep old phones because I can't use them either so it's better to sell them out for others can still use them anyways.
