Both of the limited edition handsets were offered with a broad range of Star Wars-related features, including special ring tones, a C-P3O voice ring tone, Star Wars character graphics, a movie video clip and a demo of the Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith video game, along with a game purchase option.

RMS buys used cell phones for cash through a number of web sites, including http://www.CellForCash,, and It then recycles them, re-marketing them around the world. Phones that cannot be re-sold are either donated to shelters and 911 programs or are recycled and disposed of in an environmentally responsible fashion.
