What do you do with old phone?-Update

For Christmas, dh upgraded my phone to a newer one. There's nothing wrong with my old phone. So what do I do with it?

Thanks for all the great ideas everyone.

I decided to give it to my granddaughter. Her phone is acting up, and this one is newer. She has been saving up to buy one so she is thrilled.

I know, I've heard in the past or some organization that takes them for soldiers.

I either keep it as a back up or sell it to like gazelle or those phone machines at the mall. My SO gave our oldest his old phone, but there is no service to it, just wifi. Our oldest would always ask to use our phone to play games or watch Netflix, so this was a good idea especially since he's younger.

Usually I just hang onto mine, I've sold one to my cousin because hers died, and now we'll be handing them down to the kids. lol

that's how the kids got their phones to use as ipods and then hooked up for service when old enough, dd 14 finally has service on hers. They were handed down from my parents though, dh and I don't use cell phones at all.

Last time we traded in to Amazon to get a credit since we buy most stuff off there.

Keep it in case something happens to the new one.

My s6 died on me for NO reason and I can't yet replace it. So I had AT&T put my sim card in my old note 2.

Thank goodness otherwise I'd be phone less.
