Does anyone know of who or what kind of organization may have a use for our old cellphones? I hate to throw them out!

You can take them to any domestic violence center and they can be donated to overseas soldiers programs. You could Google it for the info. Also, Target stores have a red bin near the service desk for used cell phones, MP3 players, and ink cartridges.
Contact your local police department and or a local Crisis Center for Domestic Violence. Old cell phones can be reprogrammed to allow 911 calls only (with no service charges to the new recipients) and most local concerns know how to make this happen. Good for you to ask about an alternative to tossing old phones in the trash!
