Recycle Your Old Cell Phone

We have cell phones we want to donate, but can't figure out how to get our phone number out of them. We have removed all text messages and contacts. But we need to know how to reset the phone to the factory setting so our number (still current) doesn't show up in the information tab. We have a variety of phones. Thanks.

Recycle Your Old Cell Phone

Bravo to you for your desire to keep old cell phones out of the landfill! I'd suggest you talk to your cell phone store. They'll know exactly how to restore the phones' factory settings. Then you can do with them as you like: sell them on Ebay or craigslist or whatever, recycle them through your cell phone store, or give them to any charity that gives them to those in need. In our area, the battered women's shelter gives them to women so they can use them to dial 911 in a pinch. (08/29/2009)
